Redskins 2020 NFL 7-round mock draft: Literally all offense
By Ian Cummings
Round 1, Pick 6 (via LAC): Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb
Since the Redskins are only interested in offensive players for this mock draft, they’ll likely have little interest in staying put at No. 2 overall, considering that they aren’t in the market for a new quarterback in the early first round.
Thus, in this all-offense scenario, it makes sense for the Redskins to trade back with a quarterback-needy team. That team could be the Dolphins, or the Chargers, or a wild card franchise looking to make a leap to secure a franchise signal caller. There are a lot of possibilities; granted, each one requires mutual interest and ability to work, but in these theoretical scenarios, we don’t have to depend on that. Here’s a trade with the Chargers that was accepted in the Pro Football Network mock draft simulator:
At No. 6 overall, the Redskins are still in prime position to add a top talent, but at what spot? They could go with one of the four premier offensive tackles, but considering the team’s need for star talent opposite Terry McLaurin, the choice here was to instead invest at the wide receiver position, and select Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb.
Lamb is my WR1 in the 2020 NFL Draft, and he fits the Redskins in that he can compliment McLaurin as a legitimate alpha receiver. He doesn’t have the blazing speed McLaurin possesses, but Lamb wins at the catch point with outstanding body control and focus, and he’s also a dynamic threat after the catch, with elusiveness, balance, and a hunger for extra yardage. At 6-foot-2, 198, Lamb can provide the Redskins with the size they lack, and provide Dwayne Haskins with another reliable target with game-changing upside.
