Everyone in the NFC East will have picked twice before the Washington Redskins are finally on the clock in April's NFL Draft. With Washington being the only team in the league lacking a first-round selection, this was a weird combine for 'Skins fans, but with Robert Griffin III on board I'm sure they're OK with that.
Robert Alford (CB, Southeastern Louisiana): A lot of people already had the Southland Conference product pegged for the 'Skins in Round 2. But now, after finishing in the top five in the 40-yard dash, the broad jump, the vertical jump and the bench press, there's a chance he won't be available by the time Washington is on the clock at pick No. 51.
Kyle Long (OT, Oregon): Long exceeded expectations in athletic drills. He didn't bench but was the third-fastest offensive lineman in the forty. Howie Long's son might also be gone by the time the 'Skins pick in Round 2.
Jamar Taylor (CB, Boise State): Taylor drew rave reviews for his overall performance in Indianapolis. He ranked in the top five among corners in the forty as well as the bench press.
Which DB prospect would you prefer?
Jordan Poyer (CB, Oregon State): He could only pull off eight reps on the bench and ran a so-so 40-yard dash (4.54).
D.J. Fluker (OT, Alabama): He ran a relatively slow forty and struggled on the bench, but Fluker saved face with his personality, as well as the fact that his wingspan proved to be enormous. The Redskins could luck out if Fluker drops into their laps, but they might have to trade up at least a few spots.
Stock didn't change
Jonathan Cyprien (S, Florida International): A hamstring injury kept the playmaker on the sideline throughout the week, so we'll have to wait for FIU's pro day.
Tony Jefferson (S, Oklahoma): Pulled a hammy while running a 4.62 forty. With J.J. Wilcox also delivering an average performance, the Redskins didn't get a lot of clarity on the second-round safety situation.
