Mock Draft Madness

With the 15th pick in the draft, the Redskins have been mocked to just about every position on the field. There has been chatter about the team trading up, there's been chatter about the team trading back. Will Washington spring for a quarterback? Will it stay put and draft the best player available on its board? Will it trade back and acquire more assets, adding more to the nine picks they have now?

Make sure to check out all the mock drafts form the past few months – the old and the new – for total comprehension of this year's first-round prospects and possibilities.

Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

"With a void left by Preston Smith signing with the Packers in free agency, the Redskins go with the best edge rusher on my board in Burns (6-foot-5, 249 pounds), who is rising after the combine. He can bend the edge as well as any pass-rusher in this class."

Ryan Wilson, CBS: Dwayne Haskins, Quarterback, Ohio State

"Dwayne Haskins is our No. 1 quarterback but he could find his way to the middle of the first round if the Giants truly aren't interested in grabbing him at No. 6. The Redskins won't let him get past them here; as CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has been reporting since the combine, Washington loves Haskins and could even trade up for him. Haskins is a traditional pocket passer who completed 70 percent of his throws and tossed 50 touchdowns in 2018."

Lance Zierlein, Greedy Williams; Cornerback, LSU

"Any consideration of a quarterback here could be superseded by Washington's need for immediate cover help."
