Mike Shanahan is not an easy man to predict. No one had Jordan Reed mocked to the Washington Redskins in the third round, just as no one had Josh LeRibeus there in the third last year.
There are a lot of people expressing displeasure with the team for not selecting a safety with either of its first two picks, and it remains a position of need. However, having someone on the roster with the tools to be another Aaron Hernandez is something Shanahan felt he couldn't miss out on. It's not like the Redskins are set at tight end for the future, either.
So what about the safety position?
Fair enough—if the Redskins don't address the situation on Day 3, you have my permission to start panicking. Read on for five players the team should be watching as the draft enters its final day.
