10.  Randy Gregory, OLB/DE – Nebraska: (6-6, 235) Projected Round – Top 5.  Likelihood on the Board when Redskins Pick – Good.  Randy Gregory weighed in at 235 at the NFL Combine and that might hurt his stock slightly.  But he’s still one of the top pass rushers in the NFL draft.  His skills at outside linebacker would help the Redskins defense tremendously.  However, Gregory failed his drug test at the NFL Combine and it hurt his draft stock.    LW #10

9.  Danny Shelton, DT – Washington:  (6-2, 339) Projected Round – Top 10.  Likelihood on the Board when Redskins Pick – Good.  The Redskins have signed a true nose tackle to anchor their 3-4 defense in Terrance Knighton, so the need to add Shelton has decreased.  However, Danny Shelton could step right in and form quite a rotation with Knighton for the Redskins at nose tackle.  Knighton was only signed to a 1-year deal, so Shelton could be groomed to take over in 2016.  LW # 9
