Torrey Smith Projected To Go To Redskins In Mel Kiper Round 2 Mock Draft

Here's a nice pleasant surprise for Maryland fans and other fans of the D.C. area sports teams. ESPN's Mel Kiper has come out with his second-round 2011 NFL Mock Draft, and he has Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith going to ... the Washington Redskins.

Yes, indeed. Kiper has Smith slotted in the No. 49 spot, the Redskins' second pick of the round. That is the pick the Redskins acquired from the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday. The Redskins traded the No. 10 pick in the draft to the Jaguars for the No. 16 and No. 49 selections. With the No. 16 pick, the Redskins took Ryan Kerrigan, a defensive end/linebacker from Purdue.

Smith would certainly be a logical pick to help the Redskins' wide receiver position. The Redskins have potential depth issues, with leading receiver Santana Moss a free agent. Anthony Armstrong came on and had a strong season opposite Moss, but the team doesn't have much depth and could lose Moss after all. In that sense, Smith would be a very good pick.
