Mock draft roundup: No consensus for Redskins' top pick

The Redskins have a first-round pick for the first time since 2012 and not since 2011 has there been some doubt about the player the Redskins will take with that top pick. That means that Redskins fans have not been able to have fun with the mock draft game for four years. Let’s take a spin around the World Wide Web and see what the more well known draftniks have to say about who the home team will take with the fifth overall pick.

Rob Rang, CBS Sports (updated 1/20)

Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa
“Jay Gruden's success as the play-caller in Cincinnati came with one of the league's biggest offensive lines. He inherited one of the smallest in Washington and there is no question that upgrading the talent there will be an offseason priority.”
Dane Brugler, CBS Sports (updated 1/20)
Dante Fowler Jr., OLB, Florida
“With Brian Orakpo set to hit free agency, pass rusher will be high on the Redskins' wish list. Fowler projects best to the NFL as a stand-up edge rusher, using his relentless energy to be effective disrupting the pocket.”
Steven Ruiz and Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz, USA Today (updated 1/22)
Randy Gregory, OLB, Nebraska

Some have Gregory going sooner than this If this happens the Redskins could end up with an excellent all-around defender who can provide heat on the quarterback.

Bucky Brooks, NFL.com (updated 1/19)
Landon Collins, S, Alabama
“Collins is a ball hawk with the instincts and awareness to shut down the middle of the field.”
Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com (updated 1/14)
Leonard Williams, DE, USC
“The Redskins need help in several areas, and Williams would be a steal at this spot. He can dominate versus the run and pass.”
Ben Standig, CSNwashington.com (updated 1/13)
Shane Ray, DE, Missouri
“. . . That leaves pass rushers and there are a few good ones. Ray recorded 14.5 sacks this season at Missouri. Not sure what the Missouri star's addition means for Trent Murphy in the starting lineup, but it should mean applying more pressure on the Tony Romos of the world.”

With Barry Trotz out, Jay Gruden is now your longest-tenured major head coach in D.C.

With Barry Trotz out, Jay Gruden is now your longest-tenured major head coach in D.C.

Jay Gruden is many things, including honest, witty, one of the greatest Arena League quarterbacks in the history of the universe and, as of June 18, the longest-tenured head coach of a major D.C. sports team.

With the Capitals and Barry Trotz parting ways, Gruden is now officially the area's most experienced boss (while Gruden was actually hired a few months before Trotz back in 2014, they both have led their teams through four seasons up to this point, which is the number that matters here).

Scott Brooks, meanwhile, has overseen the Wizards for two campaigns, while Nats manager Dave Martinez is in the middle of his first year at the helm.

This designation will pair nicely with the fact that Gruden will also be the first 'Skins headman to hold his job into a fifth season in the Dan Snyder era. You don't need to make plans to visit his statue yet, of course, but this is some uncharted territory the 51-year-old is currently hanging out in.

Now, his overall record of 28-35-1 certainly needs work, or else he'll be in danger of handing the longest-tenured distinction over to Brooks. However, Gruden does deserve credit for bringing an amount of stability to the Burgundy and Gold, a franchise that is usually as stable as Metro's Wi-Fi connection.

So, with all due respect to DC United's Ben Olsen, the Kastles' Murphy Jensen and whatever legend is in charge of your kid's dynastic flag football team, when you think of the man who's been roaming the sidelines longer than anyone else in D.C., be sure to think of this man and only this man:
