Washington Redskins: Senior Bowl (Defensive Rankings)

The Washington Redskins talent evaluators will be in Mobile, Alabama this week to get an in-person look at some of the top talent in the 2015 NFL Draft. This will be Scot McCloughan’s first Senior Bowl as General Manager of the team.

It wouldn’t be surprising if a few future Redskins suit-up for this game. There’s always player(s) who tend to raise their stock at the Senior Bowl. For McCloughan, most recently, he fell in love with Russell Wilson at the Senior Bowl. So, it’s a game that certainly packs some top tier talent.

The Washington Redskins have needs across the board. But below I’ll list rankings of the positions I believe the Redskins could upgrade in April’s draft. Senior Bowl Offensive Rankings

Senior Bowl Defensive Tackles:

****1. Danny Shelton, Washington: This guy may end up being the second best defensive player in the draft. He’s a rarity when it comes to Nose Tackles. There’s really only three of his kind in the NFL right now — Haloti Ngata, Vince Wilfork and Dantari Poe.


2. Michael Bennett, Ohio State
3. Carl Davis, Iowa
4. Gabe Wright, Auburn
5. Graddy Jarrett, Clemson

Best of the rest:
Joey Mbu, Houston; Kaleb Eulls, Mississippi State; Louis Trinca-Passat, Iowa

1. Hau’oil Kikaha, Washington
2. Owamagbe Odighiuwa, UCLA
3. Nate Orchard, Utah
4. Markus Golden, Mizzou
5. Trey Flowers, Arkansas

Best of the rest:
Preston Smith, Miss. State; Za’Darius Smith, Kentucky; Henry Anderson, Stanford


Senior Bowl Cornerbacks:

1. Quinten Rollins, Miami (OH)

Senior Bowl Safeties:

1a. Cody Prewitt, Ole Miss

– Both are Strong Safeties to me. But of the two, I think Drummond has a chance to prove he has some range at the Senior Bowl. Interested in seeing these two compete.
