2. Third round, 85th overall: Jordan Reed, TE, Florida

Jordan Reed is a smaller, very athletic and speedy tight end prospect who offers the Redskins some versatility offensively. I know this is going to sound cheesy, but Reed actually does compare pretty favorably to Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in terms of his skill set. Obviously, the Redskins have moved on from the Chris Cooley era, so Reed will take his place as the TE/H-back on the roster. He is somewhat of a “joker” for the position, and can create mismatches with linebackers and nickel cornerbacks as a receiver. He’s not much of a blocker, but the Redskins won’t need him to do a whole lot of that. I think with his athletic ability, he will be a playmaker for RGIII in the passing game that can help move the chains on a consistent basis.
