2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-09-2013 by Ben Standig

Only a fool would argue against Robert Griffin III being the primary factor in the Redskins' turnaround last season, but a credible case can be made for the former Colt. Just look at the record with (9-1) and without Garcon (1-5) on the field. While an injured toe slowed him up a little, the physical target finished with 44 receptions for 633 yards and four touchdowns. If Garcon can stay active 15-15 games, projecting him to (nearly) double those stats isn't unreasonable, especially if RGIII's recovery remains positive. Quibble at the injury risk, his and his quarterbacks, but Garcon is clearly the Redskins top receiver - and clearly a WR2 in every format.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1

5.08 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - I was a little bummed that Dwayne Bowe didn't fall one more pick. Garcon's right foot is still a problem for him, and that's more risk than I like to take on this early in a draft. But if he can deal with the pain -- and he has said he will -- I think Garcon will post WR2 numbers this season. Yes, that hinges on the health of Robert Griffin III, but all reports out of that corner sound pretty rosy.

5.12 Bruno Boys - Again the value at the turn was at WR. The problem was that I didn't really like any of the options on the board. I ended up taking an early upside pick. Garcon battled injury literally all of last season and it looks as if he?s unlikely to ever fully heal which makes him a risk. His upside, however, is immense. Garcon managed to put up near WR2 PPG numbers despite playing through injury. His chemistry with Robert Griffin is unparalleled and no other receiver on the team has really stepped up. Garcon will lead the Redskins? receiving corps yet again and 75+ receptions is a very achievable number. Relying on him as a WR2 shouldn't be too much of a stretch.
