2014 Washington Redskins NFL Mock Draft.  This mock draft is centered around the picks that the Washington Redskins have in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Round 7 - Logan Thomas, QB - Virginia Tech - (6-6, 248) The Redskins could use a developmental prospect at quarterback, especially if they trade Kirk Cousins.  However, Thomas’ best position in the NFL could be as a tight end.  He already has the size of a tight end, and he is more than athletic enough.    Previous pick:  Taylor Hart, DE - Oregon

    I like it Maurice. Good job

      Thanks Adam. After ten tries, I agree I think I finally got one right. But we’ll see how free agency impacts the Redskins draft. What positions do you think the Redskins will target in free agency?

      • Adam Banig

        WR, ILB, DE, OL, nickel CB, FS.

        The team needs to retain most of their free agents but possibly Morgan and Moss.

        They need to cut The following:

        DE – Stephen Bowen
        Total Cap Hit – $7,020,000
        Contract Remaining – 2 years
        Signing Bonus – $2,520,000
        Cap Savings if Cut – $1,980,000

        DE – Adam Carriker
        Total Cap Hit – $6,760,416
        Contract Remaining – 2 years
        Signing Bonus – $750,000
        Cap Savings if Cut – $5,260,416 <- no brainer

        OG – Chris Chester
        Total Cap Hit – $4,300,000
        Contract Remaining – 2 years
        Signing Bonus – $800,000
        Cap Savings if Cut – $2,700,000

        P – Sav Rocca
        Total Cap Hit – $1,362,500
        Contract Remaining – 1 years
        Signing Bonus – $162,500
        Cap Savings if Cut – $1,200,000

        DE – Kedric Golston
        Total Cap Hit – $1,120,000
        Contract Remaining – 2 years
        Signing Bonus – $120,000
        Cap Savings if Cut – $880,000

        S – Tanard Jackson

        Contract Remaining – 1 year
        Signing Bonus – $0
        Cap Savings if Cut – $700,000

        LS – Kyle Nelson
        Total Cap Hit – $570,000
        Contract Remaining – 1 year
        Signing Bonus – $0
        Cap Savings if Cut – $570,000

        For 13 million dollars in savings.

        If we franchise Rak and sign Perry Riley, we'll start free agency off with 35 million to spend on new players.

        I propose signing Jeremy Maclin to a one year "r prove it deal." That's what he wants but Philly wants to do a longer term deal, Maclin is betting on himself that he can ball out this year and get a contract that will be around Garcon's after this season. So basically, we can get him at an affordable price.

        I read that Nate Washington thinks he will be cut by Tenessee for salary cap reasons. I think he could be had at an affordable deal and he could take over Moss' role and maybe even start over Maclin.

        I think on the offensive line we should consider trading for Jonathan Martin, try to sign Geoff Schwartz, Jon Asomoah and Mike Pollak (played w/ Cincy last year)

        At DL I'd try to get Paul Soliai or BJ Raji if they become free agents and move Cofield to DE. If they don't, I'd sign Arthur Jones from Baltimore to compete with Jenkins and Baker for the starting DE positions.

        At ILB I'd re-sign Riley to a deal similar to Baker's, possibly a little more like D Hall's. Then, I'd try to sign Karlos Dansby, Butler, Brandon Spikes, Vincent Rey, Akeem Jordan, Pat Angerer, D'Qwell Jackson, Darryl Smith or Jameel McClain. With Fletcher gone, they need a leader and coach on the field at that position who can keep everyone lined up right and be a playmaker.

        Then, I'd look to sign an upgrade at nickel CB. I would not bring back Josh Wilson or EJ Biggers. There are better 3rd cbs out there.

        At FS I'd try to sign Jarius Byrd if he comes available but I feel that's a long shot. Since he is, there's a good group of FS's out there – which may be the teams 2nd greatest need after ILB. Malcolm Jenkins, Louis Delmas, Thomas DeCoud, Kendrick Lewis, and Jim Leohard are all available and huge upgrades over Meriweather.

        As for Meriweather, I do believe he should be re-signed and put into the mix at The SS competition with Doughty, Gumbs, and Thomas. If Thomas is healthy, he's the only one who's guaranteed to make the team but we need a starter at SS and Meriweather would be my choice there.

        Also, Bowen and Carriker are candidates for re-signs after being cut. With both of them being injured, we just can't count on them moving forward so we can't afford their large cap numbers. If they're cut, we can bring them back on affordable deals with incentive clauses to make some of their money back if they hit certain bench marks.
