WCG Mock Draft - The Washington Redskins Select...

CURRENT SELECTION


Andre Smith
Alabama
Offensive Tackle

ANALYSIS: The Washington Redskins offensive line was bad (38 sacks allowed) and old (LT Chris Samuels was their youngest starting O-Lineman at 31) last year. While a linebacker such as Brian Cushing of USC will be looked at here in order to replace the aging London Fletcher, the line is a much bigger concern.  Simply put, the right side of the Redskins line stinks. Jon Jansen was a great tackle for a long time, but he is now only a shell of his former self.

While Andre Smith may have significantly hurt his draft stock in the last few months with his unimpressive workouts and questionable off field behavior, he still has the talent to be a franchise tackle, holding down a line for a long time.  He was an all-SEC selection last year as a sophomore and an all- american this year as well as the recipient of the Outland Trophy. His college resume speaks for itself, and to get such an accomplished player at the 13th pick would be a steal for the Redskins.
