1st Round: 13th Pick
3rd Round: 16th Pick (80th overall)

6th Round: 13th Pick (186th overall)
7th Round: 34th Pick (243rd overall) (Compensatory Selection)

A pass rusher, young offensive lineman, and some depth on the defensive line are what the Redskins will be addressing this year at the draft.

1st Round: 13th Pick- Brian Cushing, OLB, Southern California

With some team more then likely going to gamble on Andre Smith from Alabama and Brian Orakpo getting snatched up with in the top 12 choices, the ‘Skins will look to replace Marcus Washington and add to the pass rush. This young linebacker with excellent size (6′ 3″ / 243 lbs.) was a steady, consistent performer at USC and showed solid tackling throughout his career. Cushing can play all three LB spots as well.

3rd Round: 16th Pick (80th Overall) – Herman Johnson, OG, LSU

Standing upwards of 6’6 and weighing 349 pounds, this huge man would be perfect to bring in and mold for the future. In college was sound in pass protection and switched at times between guard and tackle. With Chris Samuels and Jon Jansen getting up in age brining in a young O-lineman would be setting the foundation for the future.

5th Round: 14th Pick (150th Overall) – Michael Bennett, DE, Texas A&M

Finally! This is the round where Washington fills the much needed defensive end position. With the ability to apply pressure on a Quarterback and collapse the pocket, Bennett will fit pleasantly into the 4-3 defensive scheme run by the Redskins. Bennett’s best move off the line is the bull rush which means in one-on-one scenarios, he has a great chance to get to the QB.

6th Round: 13th Pick (186th Overall) – Kory Sheets, RB, Purdue

Blazing speed and can catch the ball out of the backfield. May not be an every down back but the speedster can break the big play and add a change of pace to the bruising running style of starter Clinton Portis.

7th Round: 34th Pick (243rd Overall) – Stryker Sulak, DE, Missouri

Quick to get off the ball, this 6’5, 251 pounder has the ability to not only rush the passer but can drop into pass coverage as well. The Redskins are old and thin at the DE position so depth is a priority.

    Good selections, from a guessing stand point I don’t see the need for a RB at 6. With 2 Futures brought in the team has the “small” speed RB possibly.
