Best players still available for the Redskins to target atop Round 4
I thought that Prince Tega Wanogho was a lock to go on Day 2 of the draft. The Auburn tackle may be a bit raw, but he was great in SEC play last year.
But such is the life of the NFL Draft. And now, Wanogho is available and could make a great, long-term option for the Redskins at tackle.
I wrote about Wanogho as a potential target for the Redskins if they were able to acquire a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Here’s what I said about him at that time.
"Wanogho has all the tools needed to be a solid tackle at the next level. He has a 6-foot-5, 307-pound frame that should afford him the opportunity to stick on the outside and play either tackle position, especially if he bulks up just a bit. He’s athletic, has solid length, and should be a good starter once he develops more. That last part is key. Wanogho is a bit raw as he doesn’t have a ton of experience playing football. His success in the SEC highlighted his top-tier potential, but any team that drafts him needs to be prepared for some growing pains."
Well, now the Redskins potentially have a chance to draft him. In Round 4. Go figure.
Even if there are growing pains, Wanogho’s ceiling is worth a selection at this stage in the draft. The Redskins shouldn’t hesitate to take him if the Bengals don’t. He would add another capable body with upside to the tackle room, something that is much needed amid the continuation of the Trent Williams saga.
