05/13/2014 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: WASHINGTON REDSKINS: Round 4/102 -- Bashaud Breeland, CB, 5-11, 197, Clemson...Athletic, quick and willing to play the run, Breeland, who came out a year early, seems like incumbent Redskins free safety Brandon Meriweather in that he sometimes plays out of control. With several veteran corners on the roster, Breeland will have to earn a job on special teams. He can play safety in a pinch. - The Sports Xchange
