The Washington Football Team has been connected to QB Kyle Trask for the last couple of weeks. Here’s how the Washington Football Team can maximize their picks around the Florida signal-caller.

The Washington Football Team has kept their plans both in the offseason and pre-draft as quiet as can be. With shocking moves coming like the addition of Ryan Fitzpatrick, to the mega-deal of William Jackson III, this regime has proved one thing: If there’s someone they like, they’ll be sure to go out and get them by any means.

The same might be the case for Florida’s Kyle Trask. The two-year starter greatly improved from season to season while playing for the Gators. Trask had a prolific senior campaign that included the redshirt senior throwing for nearly 4,300 yards, over 40 touchdowns, and only eight interceptions.

With John Keim and other Washington Football Team reporters claiming the organization is interested in Trask and his upside, they’ll need to build a similar scenario to the one he’s coming from. There’s a clear blueprint to bring the best out of Trask, and Washington has already laid down the foundation for success should they bring him in.

How Washington Football Team can build around Kyle Trask

Florida’s team was littered with playmakers on the perimeter, from long, rangy receiving options in Kyle Pitts, to quick, vertical threats in Kadarius Toney. Washington has playmakers in Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel, and an in-line pass catcher in Logan Thomas.

Trask works best attacking the intermediate passing game, making quick throws and fast decisions to put passes in the hands of his playmakers.

While Washington has solidified options around Trask, they could use another wideout and a vertical threat in their TE room. They could also use another offensive lineman, or even another running back to solidify a true 1A and 1B rotation from their ballcarriers.

Luckily for the Washington Football Team, Trask has a second or third-round grade. Washington will not be hard-pressed to select him in the first round, they also won’t be asked to move up in the second round should they decide to select him. They’re in the proverbial “catbird” seat, they hold all the cards.

With a full slate of picks ahead for Washington, they can maximize the talent around or in front of Trask, while bringing in day one contributors on the defensive end. Nonetheless, even after the selection of the Florida signal-caller, Washington can manage to put together an A+ draft class.
