Draft Scout Walt Aikens News
04/17/14 - Five players who should be on Washington's draft radar: CB Walt Aikens, Liberty: The Redskins drafted cornerback David Amerson with their top draft pick last year, but DeAngelo Hall isn't getting any younger and more depth is needed in the secondary. Aikens is unpolished in several areas and will need time to adjust to the NFL game, but is a gifted athlete for his size, also playing basketball and track at Liberty. He is experienced at free safety and cornerback, playing mostly press, off-man and zone coverage in college. A surprise NFL Combine snub, Aikens has workable traits and appears to have considerable room before he hits his football ceiling – a possible target with the 102nd pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
