EXPERT: Mel Kiper Jr.; ESPN (click here for full article; must have ESPN Insider access)

EXPERT: Todd McShay; ESPN (click here for full article; must have ESPN Insider access)

SELECTION: Roquan Smith; Linebacker, Georgia

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 6, 2018

PREVIOUS SELECTION(S):

  • Derwin James; Safety, Florida State (Dec. 13, 2017)

ANALYSIS: "Derwin James is a possibility here, especially with the uncertainty surrounding Su'a Cravens, but Smith is the best player on the board and would immediately increase the speed and athleticism on Washington's defensive front."

SELECTION: Vita Vea; Defensive Line, Washington

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 13, 2018

ANALYSIS: "With Vea and Jonathan Allen, the D-line all of a sudden becomes a strength of the team."

SELECTION: Vita Vea; Defensive Lineman, Washington

DATE OF SELECTION: Jan. 30, 2018

ANALYSIS: "Big, talented defensive lineman. Many scouts foresee him making a Haloti Ngata-like impact once he figures it all out."

EXPERT: Pete Prisco; CBSSports.com (click here for full article)

SELECTION: Derwin James; Safety, Florida State

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 15, 2018

ANALYSIS: "They need to get better play on the back end of their defense. James has the ability to be a playmaker in a lot of ways, even if he didn't play as well last season as expected. "

EXPERT: Chris Trapasso; CBS Sports (click here for full article)

SELECTION: Denzel Ward; Cornerback, Ohio State

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 12, 2018

PREVIOUS SELECTION(S):

  • Tremaine Edmunds; Linebacker Virginia Tech (Feb. 5)
  • Roquan Smith; Linebacker, Georgia (Jan. 29)
  • Courtland Sutton; Wide Receiver, SMU (Jan. 22)
  • Josh Allen; Quarterback, Wyoming (Jan. 15)

ANALYSIS: "Ward isn't Marshon Lattimore, but he plays with a similar technically sound, pass-breakup style and is a reliable tackler. The Redskins like their starting corners, as they should. However, Bashaud Breeland is set to hit free agency, and Josh Norman is 30."

EXPERT: R.J. White; CBS Sports (click here for full article)

SELECTION: Quenton Nelson; Guard, Notre Dame (mock trade to No. 8)

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 8, 2018

PREVIOUS SELECTION(S):

  • Da'Ron Payne; Defensive Lineman, Alabama (Feb. 1)
  • Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma (Jan. 25)
  • Josh Allen; Quarterback, Wyoming (Jan. 18)


EXPERT: Walter Cherepinsky; WalterFootball (click here for full article)

SELECTION: Da'Ron Payne; Defensive Lineman, Alabama

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 8, 2018

PREVIOUS SELECTION(S):

  • Vita Vea; Defensive Lineman, Washington

ANALYSIS: “The Redskins looked completely helpless trying to stop Alfred Morris in a must-win game the week after Thanksgiving. They need to bolster their defensive front, and Da'Ron Payne happens to be one of the best players available."

EXPERT: Charlie Campbell; WalterFootball (click here for full article)

SELECTION: Da'Ron Payne; Defensive Lineman, Alabama

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 12, 2018

ANALYSIS: "Reuniting Payne and Jonathan Allen could be tremendous for the Redskins' defense.

Payne dominated at the point of attack in 2017, stuffing runs while showcasing his freakish speed and athleticism. On the year, he totaled 53 tackles, two half-sacks, three passes batted, an interception and a touchdown reception. I heard general managers and scouts raving about Payne all season.

Scouts were already raving about Payne's potential in the preseason. He was the Crimson Tide's best defensive lineman in 2017, following Jonathan Allen's moving on to the NFL. Payne (6-2, 319) is a run plugger with a lot of potential to grow. When given the opportunity to rush the passer in 2016 and 2017, Payne was impressive, and sources have said that he helped set up sacks for Jonathan Allen, Tim Williams, Ryan Anderson, and Rashaan Evans the past two seasons."

SELECTION: James Washington; Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

DATE OF SELECTION: Jan. 18, 2018

PREVIOUS SELECTION(S):

  • Minkah Fitzpatrick; Safety, Alabama (Oct. 17, 2017)

ANALYSIS: "From a strength in 2016 to a weakness in 2017, the Redskins’ wide receiver corps took a step back after the departures of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon. Washington adds a deep-play threat after leading the nation with 715 yards on deep (20-plus yard) passes. He has the speed and route-running to be the first receiver off the board in a wide receiver class with no clear favorite at the top."

EXPERT: Dan Kadar; SB Nation (click here for full article)

SELECTION: Vita Vea; Defensive Lineman, Washington

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 12, 2018

PREVIOUS SELECTION(S):

  • Da'Ron Payne; Defensive Lineman, Alabama (Feb. 5)
  • Lamar Jackson; Quarterback, Louisville (Jan. 29)
  • Vita Vea; Defensive Lineman, Washington (Jan. 22)
  • Derwin James; Safety, Florida State (Jan. 15)
  • Josh Allen; Quarterback, Wyoming (Jan. 8)
  • Vita Vea; Defensive Lineman, Washington (Jan. 1)

ANALYSIS: "Washington would love to see Oakland pass on a player like Vea. That would open the team up to taking the draft’s top interior defensive lineman. Vea can help improve Washington’s run defense lining up next to Jonathan Allen."

EXPERT: Luke Easterling; USA Today (click here for full article)

SELECTION: Derwin James; Safety, Florida State

DATE OF SELECTION: Feb. 12, 2018

ANALYSIS: "With this pick, they address a huge need on defense, adding one of this year’s most impressive athletes in James, who can make a big impact from multiple positions."
