The Washington Redskins have a good three-man setup at running back heading into 2020. But they still could consider drafting a guy late, so they should keep an eye on these guys at the 2020 NFL Combine.

When looking at the Washington Redskins roster, it’s clear that the running back position is one of the positions that they’re better off at. With Adrian Peterson returning and young talents Derrius Guice and Bryce Love expected to be healthy for the 2020 season, they should have a chance to boast a solid running back group that could help to make their offense successful.

Of course, the team does have some concerns as well. Peterson is going to be 35 this offseason and he could tail off at any time (though it’s just as likely that the Hall of Famer will continue to play at a solid level). But with Guice and Love, there’s no guarantee that the two will be able to stay healthy. Guice has struggled to do so in two seasons while Love has yet to play in the NFL while recovering from a torn ACL.

The young duo surely deserves a chance to prove themselves. But it wouldn’t hurt the Redskins to add some more depth at the running back position. An upside player who can develop for a year or serve a rotational role in the backfield would be ideal and they could try to land one on the third day of the 2020 NFL Draft.

With that said, the team should be keeping an eye on some of the backs in action at the 2020 NFL Combine as they look for potential depth at the position. Here are a few names to keep an eye on for the team.
