Redskins: Riggo’s Rag Podcast – 2020 NFL Draft primer, hot topics

The 2020 NFL Draft isn’t for a while, but there’s still plenty to talk about, in regards to what the Redskins might do with the No. 2 overall pick.

After going 3-13 in the 2019 regular season, the Washington Redskins pick No. 2 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. It’s a familiar place for a franchise that’s wallowed in mediocrity for two decades, but the hope is that this “rock bottom” will be a spawning ground for a new age of greatness.

There’s reason to be optimistic, as the Redskins have hired Ron Rivera as the head coach, and promoted college scouting director Kyle Smith to Vice President of Pro Personnel. Rivera’s staff seems motivated to rekindle the kind of historic success that the Redskins had long ago, and fans are excited what comes from this turn of the era.

That said, there are still some lingering questions as the NFL Draft sneaks closer. The general assumption is that the Redskins will keep Dwayne Haskins as their starting quarterback, considering that he experienced growth later on in the season. But could Joe Burrow tantalize them enough to repeat the precedent set by the Cardinals last season?
