NFL Mock Draft 2013: Redskins select Bacarri Rambo in second round

USA TODAY Sports

Washington does not have a first-round pick this year, but they could end up getting a first-round talent with the 51st overall selection.

The Washington Redskins had a big year in 2012, surpassing all expectations with a playoff berth after winning the NFC East. While there was a lot of good in Robert Griffin III's rookie year, there are still plenty of areas on the roster to address in the offseason.

The Redskins' pass defense was pretty awful last year. They ranked 30th in the league against opposing quarterbacks, giving up nearly 282 yards through the air each week. Washington's front office knows they have to improve their secondary if they hope to make a playoff run in the coming years.

According to the latest mock draft from NFL Rough Draft, the 'Skins will take safety Bacarri Rambo in the second round.

51. Washington Redskins: Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia

The Redskins have an exciting future, but the defense still needs a lot of help. Rambo is an exciting playmaker that may be a steal in the second round.

Rambo, who earned an All-American nod while playing with the Bulldogs, is a first-round talent. He has size at 6'1 and 210 pounds, and his instincts are rated highly by most scouts. In 10 games this past season, he recorded 73 tackles and intercepted three passes.

There are some off-the-field issues to consider with Rambo. He was suspended for one game as a junior after violating UGA's drug and alcohol policy. He was then suspended four games back in March after testing positive for marijuana he reportedly accidentally consumed while in Panama City.
