Redskins Mock Draft Roundup: Should the Redskins go pass rusher at No. 15?

Redskins Mock Draft Roundup: Should the Redskins go pass rusher at No. 15?

It's almost time.

The NFL Draft is a week away, as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will take the stage in Nashville just shortly after 8 p.m. EST on April 25 to announce who the Arizona Cardinals will select with the No. 1 overall pick.

A lot can change in a week. Are the Cardinals still predicted to take Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray?

Where will other quarterbacks such as Dwayne Haskins or Drew Lock end up? What about defensive studs like Nick Bosa and Josh Allen?

The Redskins can go several different directions with their first round pick. So who do experts have them taking?

NBC Sports Washington's Ben Standig: DE Brian Burns, Florida State

The Redskins don't necessarily have to go quarterback, and Standig doesn't. He mentions the top three in this class might not be available at No. 15 anyway. 

The Redskins need another pass rusher, and Burns could be the perfect fit here.

Bleacher Report's Chris Roling: QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma

Murray has long been predicted to be the first player off the board next week, but Roling has the Cardinals taking Nick Bosa instead.

If Murray slips to Washington at No. 15, there is little doubt that Washington would pass up the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.

ESPN's Mel Kiper: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

Kiper believes that Lock has two significant advantages over fellow quarterback prospects Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins: strength and sample size. Lock has over 50 college starts under his belt, while Murray and Haskins were both one year starters.

Lock's accuracy is a concern, but NFL teams noticed that Lock did not play with a ton of talent at Missouri, and also played in college football's toughest conference. With Case Keenum and Colt McCoy in the quarterback room, Lock would not be pressured to start right away, either.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar: DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson

Kadar believes that if top quarterbacks such as Lock, Haskins or Jones are all gone, Washington could trade out of this spot.

But should they stay, Ferrell could be in play to fill the hole that Preston Smith left opposite Ryan Kerrigan. 

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah: DE Brian Burns, Florida State

Jeremiah still believes the Redskins will find a way to trade for Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen, taking them out of the quarterback running.

Like many others, Jeremiah believes the 'Skins could try to fill the pass rush spot opposite Kerrigan. Burns would most certainly fill that role.

CBS Sports' Ryan Wilson: QB Daniel Jones, Duke

While No. 15 may be higher than the media anticipates for Jones, he would give Washington their much-needed young quarterback.

Jones played under David Cutcliffe at Duke, who coached both Peyton and Eli Manning.

Sporting News: QB Daniel Jones, Duke

Jones has pro-tailored skills and ideal quarterback size at 6-5, 221 pounds. Additionally, he was trained by both Peyton and Eli Manning's mentor, David Cutcliffe.

With Alex Smith unable to play and Case Keenum as nothing more than a bridge quarterback, the Redskins take their quarterback of the future in Jones.

Chris Simms: Why Dwayne Haskins has 'Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent'

Chris Simms: Why Dwayne Haskins has 'Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent'

It did not take long for Dwayne Haskins to win approval from the media and the Redskins coaching staff in a short amount of time at OTAs. 

That excitement from the Redskins OTAs has reverberated across the country and made him the feature of NBC Sports' Chris Simms QB School series. There, the current NFL analyst and former NFL quarterback made big comparisons to the No. 15 overall pick Haskins to Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger. 

Simms was enthralled with the skillset that Haskins possesses and his potential. Citing his arm talent and the small mechanics of the 22-year-old, Simms thinks he has all the tools to be a top-tier NFL QB.

"He reminds me a lot of a big Ben Roethlisberger with his style of football play. [Haskins] arm is special, there's no doubt about that," Simms said. 

Comparing a rookie QB to a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback that has made six All-Pro teams is not too shabby. Roethlisberger has thrown for over 54,000 yards in his career with 363 touchdowns across his NFL career. They both wear No. 7, both played their college ball in Ohio, and both are known for their ability to hurl a football down the field. 

Some of the strong qualities of Haskins that Simms highlighted were his tight and quick arm motion, his controlled body rotation, and the accuracy down the field. At the same time, he pointed out that Haskins has a tendency to drop his elbow on passes, forcing his passes to sail high. 

"[Haskins] has Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent and I know he's already wowed some people down there in Washington in his first few practices."
