Washington's 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Washington Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for Washington from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for Washington:

Pro Football Network - DiCecco (6/7)
2) Washington Redskins: Justin Fields, QB Ohio State

In this scenario, Washington tries their hand in acquiring another Ohio State quarterback to build around, this time it's the uber-athletic Fields. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound signal-caller boasts an exceptional arm, along with the ability to extend plays outside the pocket when plays break down.

Fox Sports - McIntyre (6/7)
9. Washington Redskins -- Jamie Newman, QB, Georgia transfer

A top five QB question this offseason: What happens in Washington? Ron Rivera will want his own guy, right? Casual fans are down on Haskins; in the 2nd half of the season he was solid. In the final three games: 8 TDs, 1 INT.

Walter Football (5/19)
4. Washington Redskins: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon

The Trent Williams drama finally came to a conclusion when the Redskins traded him to the 49ers. They'll need a new left tackle.

Penei Sewell was so good as a sophomore, he received a second-place Heisman vote.

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for Washington in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 31

Washington bookended its draft with a pair of edge rushers: Chase Young, the consensus best defensive player in the class, at No. 2 and seventh-rounder James Smith-Williams. You probably know plenty about Young by now, so we're going to recommend taking a moment to get to know Smith-Williams through this story by The Athletic's Rhiannon Walker about his work as the NFL's first "Set the Expectation" ambassador.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

This season, despite what they've done in the offseason, will be all about Dwayne Haskins. Does he take the next step? At least the defensive front will be nasty.

Here are our projections for the Washington Football Team running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

Antonio Gibson139.16194.5240.9370.12.66141.99
Gibson possesses a superior combination of athleticism (4.39 forty) for his size (228 pounds) and broke tackles at a ridiculous rate (33 on 77 career touches) at Memphis. With both Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson released, the (early) third-rounder enters 2020 atop the team's fantasy depth chart at running back. Earlier this offseason, Ron Rivera said Gibson has "a skill set like Christian (McCaffrey)."
Bryce Love97.8420.51.9613.4111.20.3466.97
Rivera recently used the following adjectives to describe Love -- "multi-dimensional," "every-down back," "explosive" and "dynamic."
