Assessing the 2020 Washington Redskins draft class
Saahdiq Charles, OT, LSU (6-4, 320)
It’s time for a bit of self-aggrandizing. The aforementioned mock draft was completely accurate with this selection. Self kudos aside, the addition of Saahdiq Charles officially ends the Trent Williams era in Washington.
If it wasn’t for some character concerns, Charles was destined to be a possible first round selection. Is that cause for concern? Yes, but the Redskins did their homework and came away impressed with a young man who is trying to keep his life in the right direction.
Charles will need some time to adjust to life in the NFL, but he could be a solid starter much sooner than many may anticipate.
Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty (6-4, 225)
Picking up Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round provides excellent value for the Redskins.
The 2020 draft arguably produced the highest number of talented receivers in history. In most years, AGG is probably a second-round selection. While it is true that playing for a non-power five conference school hurt him in the draft, many talent evaluators had nothing but praise for the small college prospect.
The last Virginia small-college wide receiver to have a major impact with the Redskins was Gary Clark. Antonio Gandy-Golden could be even better.
