Evaluating the Redskins draft picks: Kamren Curl’s biggest weakness could hold him back
The Washington Redskins added Kamren Curl in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He was a safe pick, but will he make the 53-man roster?
In the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins had two picks. And they went two different routes with the players they selected.
Both picks were spent on the defensive side of the ball but the players are polar opposites, at least in terms of potential. One was a high upside player who could be held back by injury concerns. The other is a safe contributor that will certainly make an impact… provided that he can beat out other higher-ceiling players for a spot on the 53-man roster.
Kamren Curl fits into the latter bucket. The second pick in the seventh round played collegiately in the SEC for the Arkansas Razorbacks. He has a lot of experience, but there are questions about just how well he will hold up on the defensive side of the ball at the NFL level.
How does Curl fit with the Redskins? Does he profile as anything more than a special teams player? Will he be able to make the 53-man roster? We’ll take aim at all of those questions in an in-depth scouting report of the Arkansas product.
Without further ado, let’s dive in.
