2011 NFL Mock Draft: Redskins Will Have Options With Tenth Overall Pick

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Todd McShay for getting creative with his Mock Drafts. There is so much repetition in these Mocks that it is important to set yours apart. Last week McShay brought in two NFL scouts to help him form the first round. Today, he released a new Mock that didn't just have one pick for each team, but rather a few different options for what they might do at that selection. 

He give the Redskins three different options. The first is to stay put at No. 10 and draft Wisconsin DE J.J. Watt, who could help them out as a 3-4 DE and a pass rusher in certain situations. Personally, I think this is just a little bit to high for Watt because he lacks elite upside. He would be a good value pick, but I think that I would rather take Cal's Cameron Jordan who can fill a similar need.

The second option is still to draft tenth, but to take North Carolina OLB Robert Quinn. Quinn would be an excellent bookend for Brian Orakpo and would give the Redskins two feared pass-rushers. He has a lot of upside and would be good value with this pick. McShay has him going to the Texans with the next pick.

The third option is to move either up or down the Drat board to get a quarterback. I'm not sure they have the ammunition to trade up (anybody want McNabb?) so if they do decide to make a move for a quarterback, it would probably be back in the first round for someone like Jake Locker or Ryan Mallett.
