Since it's been about 27 minutes since we posteda mock draft, I didn't want you to suffer withdrawl. In fact, I made sure the this one was super-sized.ESPN's Todd McShay - goes deep, real deep, all seven rounds deep. The Redskins projected seven selections are listed below...1 (2) - Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor3 (69) - Mychal Kendricks, ILB, California4 (102) - Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri4 (109) - Brandon Mosley, OT, Auburn5 (141) - Ryan Steed, CB, Furman6 (173) - Josh Leribeus, G, SMU7 (213) - Terrance Ganaway, RB, Baylor Positionally, McShay targets all the Redskins need areas except for safety, which is considered to be one of the weaker classes in the draft. I wrote about Kendrickstoday in this article. Though offensive line is the Redskins top need, inside linebacker could be the call in the third based on the talent available and fewer options later on at that spot. McShay has Iowa State guard Kelechi Osemele beind drafted right after Kendricks and Florida State tackle Zebrie Sanders going two selections later. Adding a tight end in the fourth round does not mean the end of days in Washington for Chris Cooley, but would give the team some breathing room if cost-cutting plans had them looking 47's way. Pro Football Weeklydescribes the 6-foot-5 Egnew as a "quick-handed, natural catcher" who offers little as a blocker. Ganaway's uncle is former Redskin Jeremiah Trotter. Here is what Pro Football Weekly had to see about RG3's college running back: "Thickly built, straight-linish, first- and second-down back at his best when he is able to square his shoulders and roll downhill. Has a bull-in-a-china-shop style, but was productive as a senior after waiting his turn behind Jay Finley, and could warrant interest as a No. 2short-yardage back. Limited special-teams value could affect status. Shows some likeness to Chiefs RB Jackie Battle and might need some time to develop."
