Southeast Missouri State (South Team) -(6-3, 197) Projected Round– 3rd–Jersey #88

The biggest things that jumps out about Paul McRoberts is his height at 6’3.  Again, the Redskins didn’t have a receiver over 6’0 on the roster in 2015.  While it’s not required to have a tall receiver on the roster it helps in giving the quarterback a target with a larger window to throw in.

McRoberts level of competition wasn’t as high playing in the FCS division but his talent certainly translates well to the NFL.  Time in the right NFL system will allow his raw skills to be brought out to the forefront.

He caught 76 passes for 940 yards and 9 TD’s in 2015.  Even if the Redskins don’t release Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson this offseason, they still need to add more size at wide receiver and Paul McRoberts could help them with that.
