Mock Draft 3.0: Washington Redskins draft WR Marquise Brown

Show This To Everyone

By Jakob Vaughan

 

The Washington Redskins are doing their fair share of homework on all the NFL draft prospects. The Redskins will have their 2019 NFL Draft second-day picks announced by former players Darrell Green and Joe Jacoby. April has been a busy month for the Washington Redskins hosting pre-draft visits. Those pre-draft visits to the team’s facilities included:

Missouri quarterback, Drew Lock

Auburn quarterback, Jarrett Stidham

Iowa State wide receiver, Hakeem Butler

North Western quarterback, Clayton Thornson

Washington State offensive lineman, Andre Dillard 

North Carolina-Charlotte offensive lineman, Nate Davis

 

Oklahoma quarterback, Kyler Murray, is projected to be selected number 1 overall by the Arizona Cardinals. Murray cancelled his visit with the Washington Redskins that was scheduled for Tuesday, April 16th. I reported on Twitter (@JVaughanSports) that the Redskins are the most interested team in trading for Arizona Cardinals quarterback, Josh Rosen. If the Redskins do make the trade, I think that former Kliff Kingsbury quarterback, Case Keenum, will be involved. 

 

Redskins signed former James Madison University defensive end, Andrew Ankrah, from the AAF Orlando Apollos. The team also signed former AAF Salt Lake Stallions offensive lineman, Salesi Uhatafe. The signings from the AAF continued as the Redskins signed linebacker, DeMarquis Gates, who spent time with the Browns before the AAF. Thursday, April 18th the team signed former Liberty Flames and AAF Salt Lake Stallions quarterback Josh Woodrum. 

 

The NFL recently announced that Redskins linebacker, Rueben Foster, will not be suspended, but will be fined two game checks, following his domestic abuse allegations. The NFL stated that Foster was not found to be in violation of the leagues personal conduct policy. Rueben Foster knows that he must earn the trust of the Washington Redskins organization, saying “I am grateful to the Washington Redskins and the NFL for giving me this second chance. I appreciate the support I have received from the league, my team, and my union to help me succeed.”

 

In my 2019 NFL Mock Draft 3.0 the Washington Redskins select wide receiver, Marquise Brown, 15th overall. Oklahoma Sooners’ junior wide receiver, Marquise Brown, has unbelievable speed and game tape that backs up his nickname “Hollywood”. Brown did not workout at the scouting combine or his pro day as he was recovering from foot surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury. Marquise Brown had 75 receptions, 1,318 receiving yards, and 10 touchdowns in his final season at Oklahoma. Brown is a 5’9”, 166-pound star wide receiver, who is projected to be the first wide receiver selected in the 2019 NFL Draft. In his two seasons at Oklahoma he totaled 132 receptions, 2,413 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns. Before the wide receiver played two seasons at Oklahoma, he worked at Six Flags and played JUCO at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California. Brown struggled making $700 a month, paying $400 in rent living on his own in California. He was forced to eat cheap food and a lot of Ramen noodles, which led to Marquise losing weight and dropping below 140 pounds at one point. His story is one to remember and goes to show how hard of a worker he is on and off the football field. I have the Redskins drafting Oklahoma wide receiver, Marquise Brown, in the first round and then drafting West Virginia quarterback, Will Grier, in the second round.
