Details of the pick after the jump...

The most explosive player in the draft?

From The GM:  What a spot for the Redskins to be in.  The two positions that the Redskins probably have ranked highest on their board, OT and DE/OLB, got hit the hardest in the early goings of our MHR Mock.  And while Andre Smith (he of Combine shame) is available, and the Redskins could be expected to do wild, blood-pressure endangering moves on draftday, in the end I decided that the best option was to take the riskiest DE/OLB on the board in Aaron Maybin.  He is rough around the edges, and won't and much impact standing up with the Redskins' aging LBs, but when he gets an opportunity to put his hand in the dirt and explode off the line, he could be just the ticket for the Redskins' pretty-good-in-every-area-but-zero-passrush defense.  The knock against him is that he isn't strong enough to help against the rush, but some NFL teams feel that is selling him short (see Bills, Buffalo).  He has a terrific first step and did a phenomenal job in preparing for the Combine, increasing his strength and lean mass, which may mean he could realize his potential sooner than later.  I think the Redskins are just the type of team to take that chance, and if Maybin pans out, the Redskins defense could be intimidating, and quickly.

ON THE CLOCK

New Orleans Saints are up next.  Yet another team that could use an upgrade at OLB, they should be feeling the heat to reach, but will they?  Their elite offense doesn't really need any of the elite offensive weapons that are available and quickly becoming steals.    Guys like Malcom Jenkins and Vontae Davis fit a need and are in an acceptable valuepick category right now...

The deadline for this pick is NOON MST, March 30th.  As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid.  To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
