Casserly: Redskins will choose Williams over Okung

Any question that NFL Network contributor Charley Casserly is excited for this week’s NFL Draft?

With his usual flair, Casserly unveiled his second and last top 10 mock draft Wednesday. No big surprises or major changes from his first mock — he still has Sam Bradford, Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy going 1-2-3.

Then Casserly throws a bit of curveball at No. 4. He still likes the Redskins to take an offensive tackle to help protect new QB Donovan McNabb. But instead of Russell Okung, whom he initially predicted Washington to take, he has the Redskins going with Oklahoma OT Trent Williams.

Said Casserly: “Williams is an athletic tackle that reminds some people of (Broncos OT) Ryan Clady. I think he’s a better prospect than Clady. He gives you that backside cutoff that’s probably a little bit better than Russell Okung.”

We’ll let you watch the video to see how Casserly expects the rest of the top 10 picks to unfold and how Network analyst Bucky Brooks and Sporting News editor Matt Hayes feel about his predictions.
