Hogs Haven takes a look at 2019 NFL Draft prospects who could contribute to the Redskins"Jaylen Smith Womens Bryce Love Jersey , WRSchool: Louisville | Conference: ACCCollege Experience: Senior | Age: 22?Height / Weight: 6-2 / 219 lbsProjected Draft Status: 6th or 7th RoundNFL Comparison: Jalen TolliverCollege StatisticsPlayer OverviewJaylen Smith was 3-star prospect from Pascagoula, Mississippi. He received offers from Ole Miss, Cincinnati, and Nebraska but chose Louisville because of their fast paced spread offense and because he knew he would get opportunities early in his career. Smith’s college career really took off during Lamar Jackson’s Heisman winning season in 2016. In that epic season Smith’s receiving yardage total was 4th best on the team but his touchdown total was 2nd on the team. The following year the chemistry between Jackson and Smith improved further and lead to Smith’s best statistical year in his career. Many (possibly Smith himself) think that he should have declared early instead of staying for his senior season. The momentum of the season was with him but he ultimately decided to go back to school because of a wrist injury that would not have allowed him to compete very much in the offseason. Weighing the risk of being labeled with a red flag due to injury he decided to take his chances and go back to school. Smiths numbers declined sharply with a new QB after Jackson left and unfortunately he had an unremarkable season. Smith has some upside and we can see that in his 2017 tape. He can be a contributor at the next level with a QB that can get him the ball.Strengths Excellent size, length, and good speed for the position.Reliable pass catcher when it’s delivered to him between the numbers uses his size and speed to create separation in his routes. Has a possession receiver mentality underneath and looks to gain more yards after the catch and uses his body to do so but also has the straight line speed to challenge defenses vertically and can produce chunk plays. Has the ability to play outside and make plays in the slot. Routes could use polish but are effective, not sloppy, plus he makes decent cuts that aid in separation. Release off the LOS is smooth and he can accelerate to top speed pretty quickly. Has the length and size to make those harder catches outside his frameWeaknessesDrop off from 2016/2017 to 2018 is significant not just in stats but in competitive nature and fire. Teams will want to make sure of which version of the player they are getting before they spend any draft pick.Has some obvious stiffness in his movements and could have better body control and overall ability to adjust to the ball when its delivered in tough places. Will give up on some throws instead if fight for them to ensure the defense doesn’t get to it.No one skill really stands out above the rest and against the average baseline.Wish he was more physical as a blocker for his teammates. Let’s see his work:More Jaylen Smith videosHow He Would Fit On The RedskinsSmith has some clear limitations and I think his ceiling is probably a contributor as a WR4 at the next level. He doesn’t seem to have some of the key abilities to really take large and significant steps forward regarding his abilities as a player. I think he can improve his route running and blocking ability which could led to him getting on the field more but those are labors related to effort and will. He’ll have to do that anyway on special teams if he wants to make a roster. I’m sure no one was more disappointed in their senior season than Smith was. There were clear moments of frustration from him last season but I hope he has convinced NFL teams that he has moved past that adversity and is willing to put it the work to get better despite what NFL situation he ends up in. I like his size and straight line speed and think he can be effective at all 3 levels of the field as he’s shown in college. He’ll have to fight for his opportunities against other height / weight / speed guys like Cam Simms and Robert Davis on the roster though. Optimistically Smith could surprise in camp and could surprise some more if he’s able to make plays in scrimmages and in the preseason. Physically he seems to fit the mold of some of the WRs the Redskins have drafted late or signed as UDFAs recently. A Likely Late Round Speedster"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Looks Like Someone Has A Sixpack Of The MondaysDaily SlopRedskins RecapsEDTShareTweetShareShareAlex Wesley Is A Track StarJohn David Mercer-USA TODAY SportsAlex Wesley, WRSchool: Northern Colorado | Conference: Big SkyCollege Experience: Junior | Age: 22Height / Weight: 6-0 / 190 lbsProjected Draft Status: 6th - 7th Round or UDFANFL Comparison: Will Fuller?GRushYdsYd/RushTDsRecYdsYd/RecTDsYearTeamGRushYdsYd/RushTDsRecYdsYd/RecTDsPlayer OverviewHailing from Murphy, TX, Alex Wesley was a four year starter at wide receiver for Northern Colorado. On top of that, he was a three time Big Sky Conference 400-meter dash winner in track and field (finishing 14th in the country in 2018).He topped 1,000 yards receiving in both his junior and senior years https://www.theredskinslockerroom.com/au...rin-jersey , averaging just around 18.4 yds/rec and 5 TDs per year, and received second-team all Big Sky honors in both seasons. When challenged with tougher competition, such as playing against former Colorado first round pick Isaiah Oliver, Wesley was able to catch passes for 102 yards and 2 TDs.While he received an invite to play at the Senior Bowl, he was unable to participate in the game due to a groin injury, but looked impressive in practices.StrengthsGreat speed. He’s a track starAbility to stretch the fieldVertical threatExplosivenessRoute runningWeaknessesPlayed against lesser competitionPerhaps a little on the short sideLet’s see his workHow He Would Fit On The RedskinsIt’s been said time and again, but the Redskins’ current receiving corps is one of the weakest in the league.It would be very surprising for the Redskins to take fewer than 2 or 3 pass catchers in the draft and not make them a priority in their UDFA selections. Wesley could be a late round sleeper who would add speed to the receiving corps and immediately compete for the WR3/4 type role. He appears to be overlooked largely because he played against lesser competition, but when tested against top talent, has been able to succeed. His inability to play at the Senior Bowl could benefit savvy-scout teams as well, as it has depressed his exposure a bit. I’d love to see the Redskins take a chance on Wesley with a 7th round pick, or at a minimum, him a priority UDFA.
