16.  Melvin Gordon, RB – Wisconsin: (6-1, 207) Projected Round – 1st.  The Redskins will undoubtedly add a running back at some point in the draft, but Gordon will more than likely be gone before the Redskins make their pick in the second round of the draft.  LW # 18

15.  Kevin Johnson, CB – Wake Forest: (6-0, 188) Projected Round – 1st.  The Redskins could always use more depth in their secondary.  They added more talent in free agency but cornerback is a position where injuries and inconsistency plagued the Redskins last season.  Kevin Johnson is rising up draft boards and has emerged as one of the top cornerbacks in the draft.   LW # 20
