The fourth week of the college football season is here and there are plenty of potential top prospects on display. Here’s a look at some players the Redskins could be interested in.
It’s September. We’re only two games into the 2019 NFL season, so it seems very early to be talking about the 2020 NFL Draft. That said, teams do around the clock work on the event, and that includes the Washington Redskins.
Currently, the Redskins are sitting at 0-2. There’s not a need to completely panic this early in the season, and the team is coming up on a couple of winnable games against the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants.
However, despite the seemingly decent schedule the next two weeks, morale is low among fans. The team is dealing with injuries while the defense has been much worse than initially anticipated. Jay Gruden and Greg Manusky are both seeing their respective seats heat up and if the team can’t win on Monday Night Football against the Bears, the season could really start to slip away.
With there being an extra day between games, Redskins fans may take an extra interest in the college games this weekend. The ‘Skins have some big holes that need to be filled but do have some young talent that could grow if they continue to strengthen the team. And in a draft that is deep at some of the team’s position of needs (offensive tackle, wide receiver) the top prospects will bear extra attention.
With that said, here’s a look at some of the top prospects that the Redskins front office should be watching on Saturday.
