2013 NFL Mock Draft: Could the Redskins land Sio Moore?

David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

The Redskins may not have a first-round pick, but they are currently projected to wind up with one of the rising players in the draft.

Washington doesn't have a first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, but that doesn't mean the Redskins can't come away with one of the steals of the draft. Washington is currently projected to select Connecticut linebacker Sio Moore in the second round.

Moore, who has been rising up draft boards recently, is the Redskins' projected pick in the latest mock draft from Peter Schrager of Fox Sports. Moore was once thought of as a likely mid-round pick, but a strong showing at the combine and in workouts has boosted his stock. At 6'1 and 245 pounds, Moore has the size and athleticism to play multiple positions. He was a tackling machine in college, and also proved to be an excellent blitzer and pass rusher. He could potentially fit at inside or outside linebacker in Washington.

SB Nation ranked Moore as the No. 49 player in the draft, which falls in line with his projected selection at No. 51. Not many inside linebackers are projected to go early in the draft, with Arthur Brown, Manti Te'o and Kevin Minter the top prospects. While Moore has worked his way into the late first-round discussion, SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn does not have Moore going in the first round of his latest mock draft.
