The Washington Redskins should easily land Chase Young in the 2020 NFL Draft but do they select beyond the superstar in this 7-round mock draft.
Though it’s hard to say that the Washington Redskins really fell short of expectations in the 2019 season, it was a tough season to swallow for fans. After firing Jay Gruden early in the year, the went on to finish 3-13 on the season. Now that the campaign is over, they’re looking ahead to the 2020 NFL Draft where they own the No. 2 overall pick.
Washington has already been busy this offseason prior to free agency and the NFL Draft, however. Not only did they hire Ron Rivera to replace Gruden, a strong veteran addition to their coaching staff, but they also let Bruce Allen go from the front office. Subsequently, they are restructuring things in-house before they address the roster.
To be sure, there are a ton of things that the Redskins need to address on the roster. There are quality pieces in place, or at least enticing young ones, with Dwayne Haskins, Derrius Guice (when healthy), Montez Sweat, Jonathan Allen and many more. They also have high-priced talent that has not yet lived up to what they’re being paid, however.
Unfortunately for the Redskins, they aren’t armed with their full array of draft picks in 2020. They don’t have a second-round selection, nor do they have a sixth-round pick. The only good news — and it’s minor — is that they do have an extra seventh-round pick. Thus, it’ll be interesting to see how they navigate their needs with the draft capital they do have.
Starting with the No. 2 overall pick, let’s take a look at exactly what Washington can do to improve the roster for Ron Rivera and a changing front office in the 2020 NFL Draft with a seven-round mock draft. Note: This mock was compiled using The Draft Network’s mock draft machine.
