The other borderline one is Minny taking another RB for obvious reasons.
Jansen is playing on a recontructed Achilles and hasn't played in a regular season game in 2 years. While Samuel's is probably the most overpaid/overhyped player in the NFL.
Barron won't be picked by the Redskin's, but if they did I wouldn't consider it a waste. Depth in the trenches is not a luxury in the NFL, it's a necessity. You saw what can happen to a line when they lose their best player... the Redskin's were a sieve last season.
If you're a team like the Redskins, you cannot draft based upon an injury that *might* happen, only a team like the Patriots can do that. You need to upgrade your talent at CB, or any offensive position that's not HB or OT, to even have a chance of competing in the upcoming season(s). OL don't rotate, so depth is not as important there.
Samuels is likely overpaid, but I've yet to hear this "hype" you're talking about. Maybe he has not lived up to his full draft position potential, but he's definitely in the upper half of LT's in the league.
Obviously Jansen's reconstructed achilles is a concern, but if they really wanted depth at OT in case he goes down again, they'll be able to get it in the mid-rounds.
