2018 Draft Selections

Image

Claude Heekin - #87 (19/41) Starting TE
4th rd. 116th Overall
Arizona
Post TC (21/40) - Wk. 1 (23/37)
Year 2 - 27/38

Having traded away earlier selections for future picks and DT Gerald McCoy, D.C. takes the former Wildcat, Claude Heekin. Washington was actively pursuing 49ers free agent, Jordan Najvar. Heekin gives them a similar skillset, but in a faster and cheaper package. Claude will take the passing down role vacated by Brandon Pettigrew, who currently has an offer from Atlanta.



Image

Shane Aceves - #31 (17/31) Backup S
4th rd. 125th Overall
Washington State
Post TC (18/30) - Wk. 1 (19/30)
Year 2 - 19/30

Aceves is a physical football player, in the mold of a Zbikowski. Aceves has very little ahead of him in the depth chart as Ronald Wiggins or Myron Merriday will be a cap casualty with his selection. Shane shined at the Combine with 20 reps on the bench. He's a demon on special teams and punishes returners, something that Wiggins and Merriday can not attempt to accomplish.



Image

R.J. Fletcher - #54 (19/44) Backup MLB
5th rd. 157th Overall
Virginia Tech
Post TC (21/48) - Wk. 1 (20/40)
Year 2 - 21/40

R.J. Fletcher ran a pedestrian 4.88 40 at the Combine, but ran a bit better at the Va Tech Pro Day. The tape shows him being a gamer, so D.C. can expect a little from the former Hokie. Fletch played outside at Virginia Tech due to his coverage skills, but at the next level he's suited to be an inside player.



Image

Drake Vandam - #24 (16/47) Backup CB
6th rd. 184th Overall
Clemson
Post TC (17/37) - Wk. 1 (19/34)
Year 2 - 20/34

Drake Vandam has a tall build for a corner and has decent man and coverage skills for a converted wide receiver. The knock on Vandam out of college was his inability to handle physical receivers off the line of scrimmage. What he lacks in that area, he more than makes up for it in his willingness to support the run.



Image

Leon Garrido - #18 (12/29) 3rd QB
6th rd. 189th Overall
Tulane
Post TC (16/30) - Wk. 1 (17/37)
Year 2 - 17/37

Leon Garrido performed well at his Pro Day and sources say he his private workout with the club was top notch. Garrido is raw, but does possess some decent ability to move a pro style offense.



Image

Patrick Sutter - #28 (19/25) Reserve RB
7th rd. 215th Overall
Minnesota
Post TC (21/27) - Wk. 1 (22/29)
Year 2 - Released

Patrick Sutter is a North/South runner with a punishing running style. He's fits what D.C. likes to do offensively and has some deceptive moves in the receiving game.



Image

Roberto Harrison - #72 (22/39) Backup DT
7th rd. 221st Overall
Houston
Post TC (25/37) - Wk. 1 (26/43)
Year 2 - 26/43

Roberto Harrison is quick for a player his size. He has strong rush moves to get the quarterback. He'll likely be able to make the roster as the backup to Stephenson and McCoy.

Good stuff Wille.

I really like the R.J. Fletcher pick. I was hoping he'd still be on the board in the 6th. I think he'd definitely have been our pick in the 5th if we hadn't traded our pick away to the Jets.

Was hoping Vandam would gain some. Maybe we hit with FA CB Ponce though. Thrilled with R.J.
