2014 NFL Draft: Washington Redskins 7-Round Mock, Final Edition

The Washington Redskins are still paying the price for trading for Robert Griffin III, depriving them of their first-round pick which happens to be second overall. But they still have six picks in the 2014 NFL Draft, all coming early in each round. Here is one final mock draft of what Washington should do with those six picks.

Round 2, 34th Overall: Jimmie Ward, Safety, Northern Illinois

The Redskins brought back Brandon Meriweather and added Ryan Clark, but the Washington secondary was so bad last year that safety remains a priority heading into the draft. Ward will help shore things up behind Meriweather and could turn into a long-term starter for them.

Round 3, 66th Overall: Marcus Martin, Center, USC

The Redskins don't necessarily need Martin to start right away, but they do need to add a center for the future. Martin may have the biggest upside of any center available in this year's draft, so grabbing him early in Round 3 is a wise idea.

Round 4, 102nd Overall: Jack Mewhort, Offensive Tackle, Ohio State

The Redskins need a boost along the offensive line, and right tackle is a position that needs an upgrade, so Mewhort could be a good pick here. He doesn't have elite athleticism, but he's strong and can be a weapon in the running game. Washington will need a strong running game this year if RG3 doesn't show improvement as a passer.

Round 5, 142nd Overall: Ricardo Allen, Cornerback, Purdue

The Redskins re-signed DeAngelo Hall and added Tracy Porter, but considering how poor the secondary was last year, adding some depth won't hurt. Allen doesn't have ideal size, but he has great ball skills, is fearless against big receivers, and should be able to help out right away as a nickel or dime corner, which is something Washington could use.

Round 6, 178th Overall: Anthony Steen, Offensive Guard, Alabama

The Redskins need some depth along the offensive line, and Steen is a potential steal in Round 6. He didn't get as much attention as many of the Alabama offensive linemen who were a part of the Tide's championship teams over the past few years, but he's a rock solid lineman and he should give the Washington offensive line a good boost.

Round 7, 217th Overall: Steven Clark, Punter, Auburn

The Redskins could use an upgrade at punter, and Clark could be a valuable pickup in Round 7. He's been one of the best punters in the SEC for the past few seasons, and he is one of the best around at downing punts inside the 20. He'll be available after the draft, but if Washington wants to guarantee that they get him, they'll have to use their final draft pick on him.
