NFL draft: Redskins’ potential secondary targets on Day 2
Washington is scheduled to pick Friday in the second and third rounds (51st and 85th overall). The club’s greatest needs are in the defensive secondary.
Each of Washington’s top three cornerbacks — DeAngelo Hall, Josh Wilson and E.J. Biggers — is on the last year of his contract. At safety, Brandon Meriweather is coming off left knee ACL surgery as he enters the last year of his deal, and there is no true free safety to fill a starting role.
The following players could fill those needs Friday, according to top draft analysts.
School: Missisissippi St.
H/W: 6-2, 185
40-yd dash: 4.61
225 lb. bench press: 10 reps
Arm length: 33 7/8”
Mike Mayock, NFL Network: “People like his length. He’s got some press [coverage] ability.”
Scouts, Inc.: “Very quick feet. At his best in press-man coverage. He has the length and toughness to match up well vs. bigger receivers. Has been an above-average ball-hawk throughout career.”
School: Mississippi St.
H/W: 6-0, 192
