With Tuesday came two more picks in the 2018 Midday Mock Draft. Craig Hoffman, Redskins beat writer from 106.7 the Fan in Washington, and Bart Winkler from 105.7 the Fan in Milwaukee, made picks for the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers, respectively.

Here's a breakdown of their picks:

13. Washington Redskins: Vita Vea, DT -- Washington

Hoffman talked about the end of the Kirk Cousins era in DC and the Redskins picking up Alex Smith. 

He then talked about the needs by priority for the Redskins starting with running back. Hoffman eluded to the redskins possibly going after a RB in the second round. Hoffman also talked about players possibly falling in the draft that the Redskins could go after in the first round. 

Hoffman talked about receiver Paul Richardson’s contract and whether or not the Redskins overpaid for him. 

He talked about the kind of player Josh Norman is inside the Redskins' organization and how he sometimes uses words that don’t actually make a sentence. Hoffman did note that he hasn’t had the interception numbers he had when he played for the Panthers and that’s something he needs to make happen this season or possibly be cut. 

Hoffman talked to us about his dream draft for the Redskins and how our mock draft fits his version of the way he would draft.

14. Green Bay Packers: Denzel Ward, CB -- Ohio State

Winkler told us it feels weird that the Packers are picking this early in the draft. He did say it’s kind of a good thing because they are in a remodeling mode for the Packers but not a rebuilding mode. 

He talked about Mike McCarthy being in a win now mode especially with the moves made within the organization. Winkler described the passion of Packers fans and compared it to the fan level of SEC fans. 

Rick and Winkler joked about the border war between Wisconsin and Minnesota. 

Winkler talked about the signing of Muhammed Wilkerson and Jimmy Graham and told us who he thought was the better signee. 

Rick and Winkler sparred about who has the most lakes in their state.
