Washington Redskins Mock Draft: Final 6-Round Predictions
USA TODAY Sports

After signing and retaining impact players like pass-catchers Andre Roberts and DeSean Jackson and pass-rushers Brian Orakpo and Jason Hatcher, the Washington Redskins will stay in the trenches in the 2014 NFL draft.

General manager Bruce Allen and new head coach Jay Gruden will place a premium on improving the protection around quarterback Robert Griffin III.

That agenda will lead them to selecting a prominent O-lineman with their primary pick. Expect Allen and Gruden to leave draft day having bolstered a perpetually weak part of Washington's offensive front.

Of course, the Capital city team-builders must still find room to add bodies in other areas. In particular, there is a need for a versatile pass-rusher who can cover Orakpo, this year's recipient of the franchise tag.

If the talented outside 'backer fails to replicate last season's superb displays in 2014, Washington needs a replacement in waiting. The Redskins defense could also use an extra cornerback, preferably one comfortable in the slot.

If there's one surprise in this mock, it's the decision to overlook another area of the secondary. A detailed explanation is given in the analysis of the team's pick for Round 5.

Here is how things should look for Washington in the 2014 NFL draft.
