16.  Kenny Clark, DT – UCLA: (6-2, 310) Projected Round – 1st-2nd.  Likelihood on the Board when Redskins Pick – Good.  It’s imperative that the Redskins add some young talent to the defensive line.  Nose tackle Terrance Knighton is a free agent and defensive end Jason Hatcher might retire.  Kenny Clark has the ability to play either nose tackle or defensive end for the Redskins and could help them take the D-line to another level.  LW # 14

15.  Reggie Ragland, ILB – Alabama:  (6-2, 252) Projected RoundTop 20.  Likelihood on the Board when Redskins Pick – Possible.  The Redskins run defense was among the worst in the league in 2015 and that’s something they have to change.  Reggie Ragland is the top inside linebacker in the draft and he could be an impact starter for a Redskins defense in need of playmakers.  LW # 5
