NBC Sports Washington wants Redskins fans to help decide the team's ideal 2019 first-round pick by voting in the Redskins Draft Bracket on Twitter. Before you vote, though, take in this breakdown of the next matchup.

The last matchup of the second round of this bracket involves Clelin Ferrell and Drew Lock.

So, how'd these two prospects get here and who deserves your vote to advance? Let's answer both of those now.

Ferrell: Devin Bush is a popular mock selection for the Redskins in Round 1, but Ferrell flew by him in the opening round of these proceedings. Now, he'll look to do what he does best: Take down a passer.

Lock: The Missouri QB has already dispatched one Clemson product in Dexter Lawrence, and it wasn't that difficult for him, either. Can he do the same to Ferrell?

So, who should win?: The headline for the blog tied to Lock's debut in this bracket was, "Drew Lock vs. Dexter Lawrence should be an easy choice."

This time around, Lock shouldn't crush Ferrell. But ultimately, he should win.

Of course, that's no disrespect toward Clemson's stud, who should be a very useful addition to an NFL defense. He put up monster numbers for the Tigers, has tons of experience and can generate sacks consistently.

The consensus, though, seems to be that Ferrell will fit better in a 4-3 than a 3-4 alignment, which is what Washington employs. As noted earlier, they use plenty of other looks, but that's still worth noting. Brian Burns and Montez Sweat may be better options off the edge than Ferrell.

 

As for Lock, he's not flawless, but there's enough there to like if the 'Skins don't end up landing Josh Rosen. Charley Casserly loves how much Lock improved from 2017 to 2018 and, unlike a lot of other signal callers in this class, you can't question his arm.

Do the Redskins need to give Ryan Kerrigan a partner on the other side? No doubt. But should they do it if Lock falls to them at No. 15? No. That's when they need to secure Lock and then look for pass rushing help later on. 

You've heard the case for both players. Now, retweet or like depending on whom you'd prefer to see move on in the bracket.
