A blueprint for the Redskins 2020 NFL Draft: Part II
The NFL draft is just weeks away. The Washington Redskins will focus on players that can have an impact at the next level and prospects who can be a good fit for the team.
In the second installment of this two-part series, we will take a round-by-round look at players who could be selected by the Washington Redskins in the 2020 NFL Draft. NFL mock drafts become very popular at this time of year, and while this is not a mock draft per se, it is a detailed examination of collegiate athletes who may have what it takes to succeed at the next level.
In Part I of this series in late January, we scrutinized the many free agents that could be available. In that article, we said that “most coaches, general managers, and team owners will tell you that the best way to build a team is through the draft each year”. That still holds true, but the Redskins currently sit on top of a substantial amount of cap space and will gain considerably more when Trent Williams is presumably traded. The Redskins front office has been able to add a number of quality free agents and the focus now begins to shift towards the draft.
Today, we take a look at the players who could be drafted by the Redskins in late April and provide a brief analysis. The team currently possesses selections in Round 1, Round 3, Round 4 (two picks), Round 5, and Round 7 (two picks). Any trades could bring additional draft capital, but let’s take a look at the players who could be team members on the roster this fall.
