BTSC 2011 Community Mock Draft Pick No. 10 -- Washington Redskins Select Robert Quinn, DE/OLB, UNC

New, comments

Can the Redskins just chose to draft an entire team?  They might actually end up being further along in the rebuilding phase if they did.  Anyway, next up on the clock is user mojo88 with the Houston Texans. - John. S. -

*************

First, lets take a look at the positional needs for the Washington Redskins: QB, WR, RB, OLB, ILB, NT, CB, RE, FS, RG, C, FB, K, P, a new owner that does not suck.  Ideally, the Redskins want to pick up a new owner here since Dan Snyder is the worst in the league.  However, none of the available names fit BOA, so instead they will have to go by BPA.  In all seriousness, the Redskins are a rebuilding team considering their needs are basically an entire team.  Therefore, I am going to draft solely based on BPA.

Robert Quinn is the best name left on the board.  At 6'5 265, Quinn could be the perfect compliment to Brian Orakpo in a pass rush that could challenge the best offensive lines in the league.  Quinn is an exceptional athlete and is arguably the best pass rusher in the draft.  He has the ability to get around the edge and a good burst to pursue the QB.  Additionally, he has the speed and agility to drop into coverage when necessary

However, it is not all sunshine and smiles with Quinn.  There is a downside.  His support in the run game is not where it should be.  He can get pushed around in the run game and has not shown an ability to get to the ball carrier.  Additionally, he really only has one pass rush move which is the burst and hook around the edge.  Lastly, he missed his entire junior year because of his poor decision making off the field.  He violated NCAA rules when he was receiving a little bit on the side.

This video shows him against one of the best Tackles in the draft, Anthony Castonzo.
