With the 21st pick in the Cincy Jungle Community NFL Mock Draft, Washington Redskins GM, beau150k, selects...

Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama

Washington making it to the playoffs last year was a huge overachievement. They finished last season with a winning record (9-7), but have serious holes on their roster. Their draft needs are eerily similar to the Bengals, needing DT, S, CB, DE, WR, LB, C and RB.

Washington is in good hands for roster improvement with their highly respected GM, Scot McCloughan. He is a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy that has a great track record of drafting starters and pro bowlers. The likes of Richard Sherman, Frank Gore, Russell Wilson, Vernon Davis, Steve Hutchinson and Patrick Willis headline McCloughan's resume. Based on an interview with Bleacher report's Jason Cole, McCloughan's ideal guy for pick #21 is tough, smart, competitive, team-first and non-flashy.

McCloghan's description perfectly describes Jarran Reed. The 6'3', 307 pounder is considered the best run-stopping DT in the draft, as he led the nation in run stop percentage (according to PFF). Reed's physicality on the defensive line will dramatically help a defense that ranked 28th in the league in yards allowed per game. The defensive line departures of Terrance Knighton (free agency) and Jason Hatcher (retirement) further solidify that Jarran Reed is a perfect pick at #21.
