With the Crimson Tide starting a true freshman at quarterback in Jalen Hurts, Stewart was actually able to see an uptick in production. He recorded a career best 864 receiving yards and added eight touchdowns to that total. He was overshadowed by other star offensive players like Calvin Ridley and O.J. Howard, but there is no doubt that Stewart will be productive in the NFL as well.
Stewart will offer the team that drafted him some solid speed and great route running ability. He just knows how to go and get the ball and should be able to have an impact as a potential No. 2 receiver. He is likely to be a Round 3 or Round 4 pick, and it could end up being a steal for the team who takes him.
The Redskins will need to add some receiver depth and getting Stewart at that juncture could be appealing. He is one of the better value players on the board right now, and it will be interesting to see if he rises in the lead up to the draft.
