2012 NFL Mock Draft: Washington Redskins Could Take Devon Still With Robert Griffin III Out Of Reach

If the 2012 NFL Draft were held today, the Washington Redskins would own the No. 7 overall pick, and would thus be out of the running to pick top-flight quarterbacks Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III. Instead, Russ Lande of The Sporting News says, the team would likely select Penn State Nittany Lions defensive end Devon Still.

"The Redskins have many holes and would love to get a quarterback," Lande says, "but they're not drafting high enough to have a shot at Luck or Griffin." Despite that, Washington wouldn't be disappointed to land Still, who Lande says "can be productive playing end in the Redskins' 3-4 scheme."

In three seasons at Penn State, Still recorded 113 tackles (55 solo), 10.5 sacks, 32.5 tackles for loss, and one forced fumble. His performance as a senior earned him the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year award and Consensus All-American honors.
