2016 NFL Draft: Redskins Big Board 6.0
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 of the 2016 NFL Draft too, so we rank players into the second round as well.
30. Vonn Bell, SS – Ohio State: (5-11, 199) Projected Round – 2nd. The Redskins recently released two safeties in Dashon Goldson and Jeron Johnson. So they will need to add some depth at the position. Vonn Bell is a very versatile safety. He could play either strong or free safety, He also has the skills to cover the slot receiver. Bell is also good at creating turnovers, A trait the Redskins defense could use a lot more of. LW #
29. 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 2016 NFL 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 # 30
