With the thirteenth pick of the 2009 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Washington Redskins select Florida State defensive end Everette Brown.
Here is ReichardZ's reasoning for the pick:
When researching the Redskins, three big needs became apparent: wide receiver, offensive tackles and defensive linemen. After the selections of Crabtree and Maclin, there isn't a legitimate number one receiver left on the board. Staying on the offensive side, with Smith, Monroe and Oher gone, there are no tackles worth reaching for.
That leaves defensive line. After making a big splash by landing Albert Haynesworth via free agency, the Redskins still need to improve a defense that only had 24 sacks last season. Everette Brown is the answer. He may be a bit undersized at 6' 2"and 255 pounds, but with Haynesworth clogging up the middle, Brown should be able to attack offenses as an outside rusher. If he doesn't work at end, the Redskins also have a need at linebacker, and Brown could be plugged in there as well.
Dan Snyder has never been shy about going after top talent and getting Brown gives them a top pass rusher at either linebacker or defensive end.
