Round 3: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
With uncertainty surrounding Smith, the Redskins use a day two pick on West Virginia’s Will Grier. Not only would he be a good pick in case Smith’s recovery takes some time, but he could be a great option to develop behind the soon-to-be 35 year-old Smith. Grier was an incredibly efficient passer at WVU but took some lumps during the senior bowl practices. Still, he has a bright future and could turn into someone to trust under center.
Round 5: Delvon Randall, S, Temple
After cutting D.J. Swearinger, the Redskins need another starter at safety. They could look to free agency for that but still, need some depth. That’s why they land Delvon Randall from Temple, who does have a lot to like. He could eventually find himself playing a key role in their defense should he reach his potential.
Round 7: G.G. Robinson, DL, Louisville
With their final pick in this mock, the Redskins take Louisville defensive lineman G.G. Robinson. At 6-4 and 298 pounds, he’s built to play on the end of their three-man line. Robinson didn’t produce much for the Cardinals but was a space eater who did the dirty work. He could do the same as a pro, freeing things up for the playmakers to shine.
