2012 NFL Mock Draft: Will Redskins Reach For Riley Reiff?

The Washington Redskins are going to be one of a handful of candidates that are vying to trade up to the top of the upcoming draft for a quarterback. But until that day gets here we won't really know if that is how it will play out, and as a result, most mocks don't project trades. The latest, from our Cardinals blog Revenge of the Birds, has the Redskins standing pat at No. 6 and drafting Iowa tackle Riley Reiff.

More than any other position, the Washington Redskins need a quarterback. Unfortunately for them, both of the highly coveted quarterbacks have already been taken, and the next best quarterback prospect, either Ryan Tannehill or Nick Foles, would be major reaches here. Instead, the Skins bring in Rieff to man the right tackle position, with Trent Williams, fourth overall in the 2010 draft, on the left side. Whoever the Redskins bring in to play quarterback next season, won't have to worry much about incoming defensive ends. For an in depth look at Rieff, read khodder's draft profile.

Reiff has a lot of talent, but like the quarterbacks mentioned in his writeup, he too would be somewhat of a reach.
