Mock Draft Among Blogs: Pick 4

On Wednesday, Washington Redskins’ new head coach Mike Shanahan tendered quarterback Jason Campbell for a first-round pick. Meaning, if a team wants to sign Campbell they must give up a first-round selection. In other words, Campbell is expected to stay in Washington.

Campbell has played four season in the NFL. He hasn’t lit the league on fire and, as a result of Shanahan coming to town, most expected the Redskins to draft a quarterback.

Sam Bradford was the quarterback most talked about coming to Washington. Yet, a day before Shanahan tendered Campbell, Redskins left tackle Chris Saumels retired.

So, Ben Folsom of Curly R is representing the Redskins and he had a difficult decision in front of him. Does he select a franchise left tackle or another potential franchise quarterback?

With the fourth pick in the 2010 Mock Draft Among Blogs, the Washington Redskins select:


The Redskins have many needs this offseason, none more pressing that along the offensive line where Washington used seven different starting combinations and five different tackles, with no tackle starting more than eight consecutive games.  To highlight how serious are the Redskins needs at tackle, consider this:

Ten year veteran and six time Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels was forced to end his season early for the second consecutive season in 2009, this time due to a serious spinal stenosis condition that if aggravated again may have left Chris paralyzed or dead.  Chris will announce his retirement formally from pro football this week.

Regular right tackle Stephon Heyer, undrafted four years ago, was forced to play two games at left tackle due to a lack of quality depth at the position.  Designating your starting right tackle as the backup starting left tackle is pretty much the definition of closing the barn door after the horse done took off.

Season ending left tackle Levi Jones was on the street to start the 2009 season!  The Redskins actually planned so poorly at the second most important position in the game that the guy they got to protect quarterback Jason Campbell’s blind side was not playing organized football in September.

With only one offensive line position player guaranteed to return in 2010, left guard Derrick Dockery, there is simply no other option for the Redskins than to pick the best tackle prospect on the board at number four.

Trent was already a first round prospect, widely considered the best blocker on one of the best if not the best offensive line in the nation at the University of Oklahoma.  His draft value increased after he had a great combine and proved to everyone that he does not have chicken wing arm span.

The Kansas City Chiefs and its representative, Chiefs Report, are on the clock.
