2011 NFL Mock Draft: Redskins Will Have A Lot Of Options In The First Round

As the NFL Draft approaches, it seems like we have a new Mock to pass along to you every single day. Today's version is from USA Today, who assembled the Super Friends of NFL Mock Draftery. They have six guys making picks for every team in the First Round, and somehow, it's even more confusing then I just made it sound. The only thing they can agree on, is that that they have no idea who the Redskins will draft.

The six different drafters took five different players for the Redskins at No. 10 overall, with Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara being the only player to get two votes. The other four players are Alabama's Mark ingram, Wisconsin's J.J. Watt, Alabama's Julio Jones and Georgia's A.J. Green. Let's break them down.

I think Amukamara would be a good fit for the Redskins but I don't think he'll make it past the Cowboys, and I'm not sure the Redskins want to invest a top-ten pick on a player who plays the same position as DeAngelo Hall, whom they already pay handsomely. They definitely need a running back, but there isn't one in this draft that deserves to go as high as they have Ingram here. Watt is a good player, but I have concerns about what position he would play in a 3-4. Of these picks I like the wide receivers the best, but I don't think that the Redskins will go in that direction.

So let's just call this a swing and a miss for USA Today. Six drafters, five players, and not one I could see the Redskins seriously considering on Draft day. But then again, what do I know?
