NFL Mock Draft 2013: Drafttek predicts OL Ricky Wagner of Wisconsin to Redskins in Round 2

Andy Lyons

Mock draft website Drafttek.com has the Washington Redskins selecting Wisconsin offensive lineman Ricky Wagner with their second round draft pick.

While the NFL Draft order is yet to be set in stone, mock drafts for 2013 are already springing up on the Internet. Drafttek.com, which does a mock draft to as far as the fifth round at this point, has predicted that the Washington Redskins will select Wisconsin Badgers offensive lineman Ricky Wagner with their first pick of the draft, currently No. 51 overall in the second round.

The writers on Drafttek believe that the selection of a player like Wagner can help provide an improvement to an offensive line that helped the Redskins lead the league in rushing this season:

Trent Williams finally lived up to his enormous potential in 2012 at LT. However, Tyler Polumbus would be better off as a back-up OT. Wagner has been a powerful force for the Badgers at RT and should step right in to continue the Redskins' reign as NFL team rushing champions.

The website also provides a pair of alternatives that the Redskins could consider. One of them is Baylor Bears' offensive lineman Cyril Richardson, who started every game of quarterback Robert Griffin III's Heisman Trophy-winning season. The other alternative listed is Texas Longhorns' linebacker Alex Okafor who recorded 12.5 sacks this past season as well as 16.5 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles.
