Which teams might be most interested in trading for Redskins No. 2 pick
1. Miami Dolphins (No. 5 pick)
If any team can guarantee they can get the guy they want, it’s the Miami Dolphins. Outside of the Cincinnati Bengals who hold the No. 1 overall pick, no team is more in control of their destiny when it comes to selecting a quarterback than the Dolphins.
The Dolphins have three first-round picks that they picked up via trades with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans. They own their own pick at No. 5 as well, so with three rock-solid assets, they are essentially in control of the first round whether they want to move up or down.
It seems likely that the Dolphins are interested in Tua Tagovailoa. And why wouldn’t they be? The team needs a long-term answer at quarterback but they are one of the few teams picking early that can take that type of risk because of their aforementioned draft capital.
While the Dolphins are on track to land Tagovailoa now, a lot can change in the lead-up to the draft. And if another team on this list leapfrogs them, they’ll have to return the favor. So, the Dolphins could dangle some intriguing trade packages in front of the Redskins if they want to guarantee that they will get a quality starter at the quarterback position.
Again, the ‘Skins aren’t just going to fork over the No. 2 overall pick. Perhaps no package will convince them to trade it. It’s just important to note that the team may have offers on the table, especially if other teams get into a bidding war for top quarterbacks in this draft class. We’ll soon see how things shake out as draft season begins to ramp up.
