NFL Draft 2016: Redskins Big Board 3.0 – A New Number 1?

This is a big board ranked to the specific needs of the Washington Redskins and not the NFL.  Players the Redskins might be drafting with their first pick.  It’s possible the Redskins might trade down in the first round too, so we rank players into the second round as well.

28.  Braxton Miller, WR – Ohio State:  (6-1, 204) Projected Round – 2nd.  Braxton Miller stood out among some good wide receiver prospects in senior bowl practices and his athleticism makes him an intriguing prospect.  He’s still learning how to be a receiver as he spent most of his career at Ohio State as a quarterback.  But with more time and coaching at wide receiver, Braxton Miller could become a very dangerous weapon to the Redskins offense.     LW # 

27.  Tyler Boyd, WR – Pittsburgh:  (6-2, 200) Projected Round – 2nd.  Wide receiver will be one of the positions that the Redskins will need to address in the draft.  They’ll  need size and perhaps more speed depending on which veteran receiver is no longer with the team in 2016.  Tyler Boyd has the ability to help in both areas and is one of the most acrobatic receivers in the draft.     LW # 26
