Redskins Mock Draft Scenario

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

A look at a possible Redskins mock draft scenario

With the start of Combine week, I thought it would be good to take a look at a possible Redskins draft scenario using On the Clock Mock Draft Simulator. While I do think there is still a chance the Redskins could opt to trade back, I didn’t do any trades in this scenario. My goal for this was to find value and hit as many needs as possible.

As always you can follow along with the Mock here!

Top takeaways from XFL Week 3

Week 3 of the XFL season featured much better quality of play compared to last weekend. That’s to be expected for the start-up league. It included the St. Louis BattleHawks putting up a heck of a performance in front of a packed crowd in their home debut. Meanwhile, Houston Roughnecks quarterback P.J. Walker immediately showed why he’ll be considered by NFL teams. On the other side of the ledger, Cardale Jones and his DC Defenders laid an egg against the previously winless Los Angeles...

Ron Rivera on Trent Williams' return: Nothing has been resolved

The Washington Redskins are hoping that the arrival of Ron Rivera will lead to the return of seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams. Speaking briefly after attending an NFL competition committee meeting Sunday, Rivera was asked about the situation. His response was shared by Mark Maske of the Washington Post. Unfortunately, that doesn’t exactly inspire confidence that Williams will return to Washington in 2020. Washington was without Williams all of last season after he vowed to...

Trent Williams and the Redskins - Rebuilding the Bridge

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

What will it take to lure Trent Williams back to the Redskins?

The Redskins brass should be pretty used to cleaning up messes. Fortunately, the man who created the majority of these messes, Bruce Allen, is no longer around. However, he’s very conveniently left a nice mess for the new staff to clean up when it comes to the team’s best player, All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams. Call it a going away present from the former despised team...

What should the Redskins do at Quarterback?

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

We can’t go into training camp with just Haskins and Alex Smith, can we?

If we discount the notion that Alex Smith could be healthy enough to play in 2020, then the Redskins have only one quarterback under contract — second-year signal caller, Dwayne Haskins Jr.

That’s clearly not acceptable. The Redskins need a guy in the quarterback room with Haskins, and maybe two.

While it may be a good idea to use a mid-to-late round draft pick or UDFA to reinforce...

is this important?

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero seems to have taken the lead role as the guy who has the best sources and fastest twitter fingers for reporting on the CBA. His Twitter timeline is a veritable gold mine of information about what’s gone on with the CBA negotiations this week.

Here’s his latest:

Absent a new collective bargaining agreement, teams can still apply both tags, which is big for teams such as the #Cowboys and #Titans. If...

Studs, duds from Saturday's XFL Week 3 action

The Houston Roughnecks and Dallas Renegades emerged victorious Saturday as star players shined during the XFL Week 3 action. On the other side of the coin, the Tampa Bay Vipers are still without a win, and the Seattle Dragons fell to 1-2 thanks to some poor execution on offense. We’re starting to see some players taking big steps toward becoming bona fide superstars in this burgeoning league. Meanwhile, others who have been expected to shine have taken a back seat. These are the biggest...

Would you like to see Taylor Gabriel in a Redskins uniform in 2020?

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/Getty Images

He’s been with three teams in a six-year career, but Gabriel is a highlight reel for speed and ability to track balls in the air.

I became a Taylor Gabriel fan in 2016 when I first saw him play — at that time he was in his third NFL season, but his first with the Falcons, playing for offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. When I watch him play, I’m reminded of Desean Jackson because of his speed and ability to track the ball in the air. ...

Report: Washington thinks Trent Williams will return to team in 2020

Trent Williams vowed to never play for Washington again, but it sure sounds like a real possibility he’ll be part of the team in 2020. According to Les Carpenter and Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the powers that be in the organization are convinced there is a “strong chance” Williams will rejoin the team for the 2020 season. One source said the “tea leaves” point toward a Williams return, and new coach Ron Rivera has made it a “huge focus” to get Williams back with the...

The proposal is nowhere close to dead, however. It goes next to the board made up of 32 player representatives.

The executive committee is the group that is responsible for negotiating the deal. It is led by NFLPA...
