The Washington Football Team has various team needs as the draft draws nearer and one such need is free safety.
Mock drafts bring a mix of reactions at this time of year. Many fans are exhausted from looking at so many predictions and while there is no known medical diagnosis, it is safe to say that “mock fatigue” is real when we get to the month of the actual draft.
However, if mocks suddenly disappeared at this time of the year, those same fans would be clamoring for more. It’s addictive and we’re more than happy to feed that hunger and quench that thirst. Please keep in mind that moderation is the key to surviving mock fatigue.
Oh, what the heck! We have another Washington Football Team mock draft today and you are going to love what we have put together. No, really, you are going to love it!
We have a new specialty mock for you today and it is the first of a four-part series. The focus for today is free safety and this mock will feature that position only, with the sole purpose of informing you of round-to-round options at the position. The next three mocks for this format will center on linebackers, tight ends, and tackles or wide receivers – that last specialty mock will be one or the other, but we’ll keep it a secret for now.
Free safety is a team need and the Washington Football Team is likely to select one or more in the draft. The chances of drafting one in the first four rounds are high and another one could be added late in the draft. The Troy Apke experiment never worked and the depth is fairly good with Deshazor Everett and Jeremy Reaves. However, there will significant upgrades to the free safety corps at some point during this offseason.
The format that we will use for this series is simple. The first three rounds and rounds four through seven will feature short descriptions for each player. Let’s take a detailed look at the free safeties that Washington could target in the draft.
