2013 NFL Mock Draft: Redskins left with second tier of secondary options

USA TODAY Sports

Six defensive backs came off the board in the first round, leaving the Redskins with tier two options in the second round.

Washington redskins fans haven't had much reason to peruse one-round mock draft this draft season after the team traded its first round pick as part of the move to bring in Robert Griffin III.

The Redskins have multiple needs to fill, namely in the secondary. While they have reportedly been in the mix for multiple defensive backs in free agency, Washington is still a strong candidate to address the position on day two.

In the first round of Dan Kadar's most recent mock draft for SB Nation's NFL Draft site, three safeties came off the board in round one. Add to that the three cornerbacks that came off the board, and the Redskins would be left with the second tier of players at both safety and cornerback.

The other NFL squad in the D.C. area, the Baltimore Ravens, have an interesting draft ahead after trading away Anquan Boldin. The team could use some help at wide receiver, but Kadar has the addressing another need, inside linebacker, with Alec Ogletree of Georgia.
