The 2011 NFL Draft just ended, which means it's time to look ahead to next year. Given the way the draft has become a year-round thing, it's never too early to consider a 2012 NFL Mock Draft. Right?
The answer is yes, especially if you're already reading this page. So who are the Redskins currently projected to take in a 2012 Mock Draft. Brian Galliford and Andy Hutchins of SBNation.com put together one on Saturday night, and they project the Redskins to have the third-worst record in the NFL. They also project the Redskins to do what they didn't do this year: select a quarterback in the first round. That quarterback is USC's Matt Barkley.
3. Washington Redskins: Matt Barkley, QB, USC. During ESPN's draft telecast this weekend, John Beck's name was floated as a possible starter. So yeah, the Redskins are taking a quarterback early next year.
Only San Francisco and Carolina are projected to have worse records than the Redskins. So yeah, let's prove them wrong, everyone!
