One last mock draft? Yes one last mock draft Geron Christian Jersey , this time looking at the way too early projections for the Redskins draft pick in 2020. The mock drafters do not think Washington will be very successful next season, with a draft range from #1 – #19, and all but two projections being in the top 10. Vegas has also set expectations low with a starting line of 6 wins for the Redskins in 2019. Not good Bob.Alex Smith will likely miss this season, and could possibly be done in the NFL, so the Redskins drafted Dwayne Haskins in the 1st round this year. Washington also traded for Case Keenum, and still have an injured Colt McCoy on the roster so the only QB need they will have next year are for a solid backup.The Redskins spent their other 1st round pick on OLB Montez Sweat, who should be a long-term starter opposite Ryan Kerrigan. That did not stop several prognosticators from giving Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young to the Redskins. Kerrigan turns 31 this year, and is only under contract through next season. Would they draft OLBs in the first round in back-to-back years?Trent Williams also turns 31 this year and has a contract that runs through 2020, and there isn’t a replacement on the roster currently. Morgan Moses is locked up through 2022, and the Redskins drafted Geron Christian in the the 3rd round last year, but they will need to start looking at OTs next season.The Redskins drafted two WRs this year, including Ohio State’s Terry McLaurin, but they still show up in this roundup. Colorado’s Laviska Shenault and Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy are the popular choices to be Haskins new targets.Safety, CB, and TE round out the rest of the picks. The Redskins ignored safety and tight end in the draft this year and will likely look to next year’s draft to get some young talent. They did add Landon Collins in free agency, but need more help for him. Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis are likely on their last legs in Washington and Jeremy Sprinkle is backup level. The Redskins drafted Jimmy Moreland in the 7th round to add to their collection of late round CB lottery tickets. Josh Norman’s likely entering his last year here, and they could use an upgrade.Where will the Redskins pick, and who/what position should they take next year?#1Bleacher Report(Miller)Chase Young, OLB, Ohio State#2The Athletic(Brugler)Chase Young, OLB, Ohio StateSports IllustratedJerry Jeudy, WR Troy Apke Jersey , AlabamaSan Diego Times U~TAndrew Thomas, OT, GeorgiaDraft SiteWalker Little, OT, Stanford#3Draft Wire(Easterling)Grant Delpit | S | LSU#4E$PN+(McShay)Chase Young, OLB, Ohio StateSporting NewsAndrew Thomas, OT, Georgia#6SB NationLaviska Shenault, WR, ColoradoYardbarkerLaviska Shenault, WR, ColoradoNBC Washington(Standig)CJ Henderson, CB, FloridaDraft BlasterChase Lucas, CB, Arizona StateThe ScoreJerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama#7The Big LeadLaviska Shenault, WR, Colorado#8The Draft Network(Sikkema)Trey Smith, OL, Tennessee#9NFL Spin ZoneCeeDee Lamb Zach Brown Jersey , WR, Oklahoma#14Walter FootballAlbert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri#19Walter Footbal(Campbell)C.J. Henderson, CB , Florida With Sunday rosters locking as of 4:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, the two remaining holdouts are guaranteed to miss the first week of the regular season.Even if Chargers running back Melvin Gordon or Washington left tackle Trent Williams have a change of heart tonight and try to show up tomorrow, there’s no way they can be added to the roster, because there can be no transactions on Sunday.For Gordon, whose base salary for 2019 is $5.605 million, it means that more than $329,000 will be lost. Williams, who is due to make $10.85 million in salary, loses more than $638,000. Throw in his per-game roster bonus of $15,625, and the cost for Williams exceeds $650,000.That’s beyond any fines that could eventually be collected from either player. Since those fines often are written off, the only certain losses for players who hold out are lost game checks. That’s why so few players extend holdouts into the regular season.This year, two are doing it. At least for one week. Time will tell how long Gordon and Williams stay away.
