Washington Redskins 7-Round Mock Draft: Post-Christmas Edition
Round 6, Pick 18 – CB Des Lawrence, North Carolina
Though the Redskins addressed one of their secondary issues earlier in the draft, the team needs to look into adding some cornerback depth. Their players across from Josh Norman have been brutal over the course of the season, so they really need to add some high upside depth. Des Lawrence could give the team just that.
Lawrence has been a quality defender for the impressive North Carolina team. Working as a cornerback for the past couple of seasons, he has been able to log two picks and 21 pass defenses. He has been an all-around solid player in the ACC, and he figures to be a quality depth player at the NFL level.
Lawrence would bring the Redskins a solid, reliable option off the bench and could take over for the veteran Greg Toler. He would not play much as a depth player, but it would give him time to develop. He is a high floor guy that has a decent ceiling. The Redskins would be happy to have him on the roster.
