10.  Darron Lee, LB – Ohio State: (6-1, 235) Projected Round – Top 20.  Likelihood on the Board when Redskins Pick – Good.  Darron Lee is one of the most versatile linebackers in the draft.  He could play in a 4-3 or 3-4 defense.  In the Redskins 3-4 he’d play inside linebacker.  Lee has the kind of athleticism that the Redskins could use not only against the run but also when dropping in coverage against the pass.  LW #6

9.  Sheldon Rankins, DT – Louisville: (6-2, 304) Projected Round – 2nd. Sheldon Rankins is flying up the board after a great showing at the senior bowl.  He has to the talent to be a great addition to the Washington Redskins.  He can play multiple positions along the defensive and is explosive off the ball.  The Redskins will need strong young presence added to the D-line this offseason and Sheldon Rankins could be that man.  LW #21
