As this time of year rolls around http://www.authenticswashingtonredskins.com/cheap-jamison-crowder-jersey , and as usual, the Redskins are sitting at home watching meaningful football on their TV’s, talk turns to the NFL Draft. And, as usual this time of year, we have our normal “we need to draft a guard in the first round” club. Skins fans - guess what?...been there, done that. How has our recent record been?...that’s what I thought.Yesterday I wrote a column about why the Skins need to focus on overall team speed this off-season, but in no way, shape of form does that mean we should go another year neglecting the left guard position. It’s more a question of WHEN we should address that position...not IF. There are some potential answers at guard for 2019 staring us right in the face. Arie Kouandjio was, by all accounts Youth Da'Ron Payne Jersey , being counted in to start the season last year at left guard. An unfortunate injury in the spring forced him to injured reserve, and forced the Redskins to look elsewhere for a starting guard.Unfortunately for the team and fans, they decided to turn, yet again, to veteran Shawn Lauvao. The veteran linemen, yet again, got injured and was placed in IR for the season, leaving a massive hole on an otherwise strong unit.The Redskins have two potential starting guards as 2019 free agents in Jonathan Cooper and Arie Kouandjio. Both guys are under 30, and both have the potential to fit into the Redskins offensive scheme. The problem with Copper Youth Jordan Reed Jersey , like Lauvao, is he can’t seem to stay healthy. With Kouandjio, it’s more of a consistency issue. He’s played well at times, but at others, he’s struggled. The best bet would be to re-sign one of the two, and let them compete for a spot in training camp with whoever the Redskins bring in (hopefully) during the draft. And now on to that draft part...There are no clear-cut pure left guard prospects like the Colts Quentin Nelson who will go high in this draft. There are a few linemen worth pick number 15 overall, but none of them are interior guys. There are however, some really good prospects who could be available after the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.The Redskins currently hold their own selection in the third round, but will likely get an additional comp pick in the third for losing Kirk Cousins via free agency. Let’s take a look at some potential third round left guard options for the Skins in 2019:*I am not adding any pure centers to my list White Josh Doctson Jersey , but will add some players who can project to either C or G.Beau BenzschawelGWisc.6’6” 315 RD 2 (could he slip to the 3rd?)Martez IveyGFlorida6’5” 306RD 2 (could he slip to the 3rd?)Michael DeiterG/CWisc.6’6” 310RD 2 (could he slip to the 3rd?)Terronne PrescodGN.C State6’5” 334 RD 2-3Ben PowersGOklahoma6’4” 312 RD 2-3Darryl WilliamsGMiss St.6’2” 310 RD 2-3Chris LindstromGB.C.6’3” 310 RD 2-3Conner McGovernG/CPSU6’5” 325 RD 3Garrett BrumfieldGLSU6’2” 303 RD 3Ryan BatesGPSU6’4” 310 RD 3Dru SamiaGOklahoma6’5” 298 RD 3Nate DavisGCharlotte6’2” 310 RD 3Michael JordanG/COhio St.6’6” 310 RD 3-4Derwin GrayGMaryland6’5” 330 RD 3-4Lester CottonGAlabama6’3” 325 RD 3-4Alex BarsGN.D.6’5” 310 RD 3-4Damian PrinceGMaryland6’3” 320 RD 3-4*Note: Some of these projections will change after the Senior Bowl/Combine. There may not be a lot of top-end talent at guard, but as you can see, this draft is loaded in the middle rounds with starting-level players - many of whom can be plug-and-play NFL interior linemen. The Redskins would be wise to use their picks in the first and second rounds to improve their overall team speed on both sides of the ball, and use one of their third round picks on a left guard.
