The Washington Redskins sit in the middle of Round 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft. By extension, they can do a lot of things with their pick.
For what seems like the third time in a row, at least, the Washington Redskins are dead set in the center of the first round. It’s not an ideal position to be in, but there are some ways such unfavorable position could bear fruit for the Redskins.
It’s possible that, at No. 15, some top talent could trickle down through the cracks and be available to Washington. Such a thing happened last year, when both Daron Payne and Derwin James were on the board at pick No. 13. This year, top prospects like Brian Burns, D.K. Metcalf, Cody Ford, and T.J. Hockenson could drop into the Redskins lap, among others.
If no top talents drop, however, and the Redskins find themselves drafting for need, they’re at a spot where they could also trade back, if a quarterback were to fall to them, for example. If the Redskins trade back, they’ll find a new batch of players to consider. And the safety position enters the fold.
If the Redskins find themselves interested in a running mate for Landon Collins in the 2019 NFL Draft, who might fit what they’re looking for? To answer that question, I’d like to introduce you to Delaware’s Nasir Adderley.
