The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft is in the books, and now, we turn our attention to the second round. By virtue of a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Washington Redskins now have two second-round selections: No. 41 and No. 49. Which player could they select with those picks?
The Redskins have a lot of needs and will possibly look at a quarterback, nose tackle, wide receiver or even a running back with those two picks, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. TCU's Andy Dalton and Nevada's Colin Kaepernick lead the remaining quarterback prospects, though Arkansas' Ryan Mallett is also available. At nose tackle, Oregon State's Stephen Paea is the top remaining prospect. If the Redskins elect to go with a running back or wide receiver, local prospects Torrey Smith of Maryland and Ryan Williams of Virginia Tech remain possibilities.
Of course, this is all based on the draft projections. As Redskins Blog's Matt Terl noted on Thursday, no mock draft had the Redskins picking Kerrigan. Clearly, this is all guess work.
