Redskins: Riggo’s Rag Podcast – 2020 NFL Draft recap
By Ian Cummings
If you missed our radio-friendly voices, then you’re in for a post-NFL Draft treat.
If you didn’t miss our radio-friendly voices, well… sorry, we’re back.
We figured now was a good time to come back, seeing as that the Washington Redskins recently concluded their 2020 NFL Draft performance. It was the first NFL Draft conducted by Redskins head coach Ron Rivera and vice president of player personnel Kyle Smith in tandem, so it’s a notable occurrence, at the very least.
There was a lot of anticipation and build-up heading into draft weekend, regarding the Redskins’ intentions, and at one point, it seemed like a legitimate possibility that the team would trade back from No. 2 overall. But when it came down to the moment of truth, the Redskins stood firm and selected edge rusher Chase Young.
Young will undoubtedly be the most scrutinized selection from the Redskins 2020 NFL Draft class, but the team made seven other selections, and those have been attracting a considerable amount of attention as well. Here’s a quick list view of the picks that Washington made over the weekend:
- Round 1 – Ohio State EDGE Chase Young
- Round 3 – Memphis RB/WR Antonio Gibson
- Round 4 – LSU OT Saahdiq Charles
- Round 4 – Liberty WR Antonio Gandy-Golden
- Round 5 – San Diego State OL Keith Ismael
- Round 5 – Michigan LB Khaleke Hudson
- Round 7 – South Carolina DB Kamren Curl
- Round 7 – NC State EDGE James Smith-Williams
Each selection from Washington’s draft class carries with it certain implications and expectations, and yesterday, my colleague Jacob Camenker and I sat down to record the latest episode of the Riggo’s Rag Podcast, and talk over each pick in detail, starting with Young and ending with Smith-Williams. We dissected each selection, and even went over a composite grade for the class when it was all said and done.
