NFL Combine 2018: 3 offensive linemen for the Redskins to watch
I’m bullish on many of the players from Georgia in this year’s draft. I’ve spoken about my appreciation for Sony Michel and Roquan Smith in recent weeks, and this time, it’s Isaiah Wynn‘s turn to get some love.
Wynn was quietly one of the best offensive players for Georgia last season. He played the left tackle position and did a lot to give freshman Jake Fromm ample time to work in the pocket.
Back in January, I mocked Wynn to the New Orleans Saints at the No. 27 spot in my NFL Mock Draft. At the time, I said the following of his ability.

"Wynn has played left tackle at Georgia, but some believe that he is best suited to play an interior position in the NFL. Given his 6-foot-2, 302 pound frame, that seems like a logical point. At the same time, Wynn should have the versatility to play tackle if needed, so that could come into play with that pick as well."
However, since that time, Wynn has been officially measured at the Combine, and he came in at 6-foot-3, 314 pounds. That could help his case to play outside for an NFL team. At the same time, he would probably be best suited inside because of his slightly smaller stature. Regardless, getting a lineman who could potentially play all the positions on the offensive line will appeal to many teams. Wynn possesses that.
Wynn has the potential to become a very solid starter and if he is somehow available when the Redskins are on the clock in Round 2, they shouldn’t hesitate to pull the trigger on him. Or, if they still have to fill that hole, they could contemplate trading into the back end of the first round to get him.
