SI’s King Has Redskins Taking Robert Quinn at Number Ten


Peter King, long time writer at Sports Illustrated, is back with his latest Mock Draft, and he has Cam Newton going #1 overall to the Panthers, which seems to be the growing trend. King has the Skins taking DE Robert Quinn from North Carolina with the 10th pick. Here’s what he has to say about him.

10 REDSKINS

WILL PICK

Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina

SHOULD PICK

Mike Pouncey, G-C, Florida

With this choice, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett can team Quinn with Brian Orakpo and have the best bookend pass rushers in the NFC—presuming Quinn is as good as advertised. Though Washington needs a passer, there’s no lock at this spot, and I’d rather see the Skins help the hurting offensive line with the versatile Pouncey, who can be a mainstay for 10 years. Quarterback? Build the lines first. And get a receiver.

    I’ve been saying the same thing for the last 4 weeks! Draft Pouncey with the 10th pick, Kapernick, Locker, Tyrod Taylor or Mallett with the 41st and get Orlando Franklin with a 5th or 6th rounder. We need to continue to build the O Line. We can put Lorenzo Alexander opposite from Orakpo and they will get to the QB.

  2. I agree with last poster about the offensive line. Now for Alexander getting to QB…I say put Alexander back where he does best: tight-end/fullback and defensive end on running downs; ST. Jarmon looks like the real deal getting to QB, whether it is DE or LB. Throw in a few more safety/cb blitzes if that isn’t working.

    I’d take it a step further and draft a center who can start for the next ten years in the second round. Fifth round we need depth at guard and should be able to find very qualified guards in this year’s fifth. With all the other picks and any we can trade for we grab guys to audition for NT.

    Since we have limited picks, we’ll have to fill other needs in a logical order in the future, without letting solid players(Moss/Brown/Rogers) leave as free agents until we have a full roster and abundant picks. 2012, we draft a NT, OLB, RB. 2013 we draft WR, CB, OG. 2014 we go QB in first to compete with Bargain McNabb and Maybe Beck behind a real offensive line, and grab another WR in second round.
