Wide receiver wasn’t a significant priority for the Washington Redskins in the first round, but they stuck with their board on Thursday.

After trading down a spot with the Houston Texans, Josh Doctson remained the best player available in the Redskins’ war room. Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said the TCU product was the best player on the team’s board with the 22nd overall pick.

“He’s got height,” Gruden said. “He’s got the mad leaping skills which are very appealing – especially in the red zone. He’s another guy that’s going to bring athleticism to this offense, and we’re excited to have him.”

Washington had pressing needs at defensive line but decided to pass on a number of players, like Kenny Clark (taken 27th overall by the Green Bay Packers), Robert Nkemdiche (taken 30th overall by the Arizona Cardinals) and Vernon Butler (taken 31st overall by the Carolina Panthers). The Redskins had a nice corps of wide receivers for 2016 prior to the addition of Doctson, but DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon are both entering this season on expiring contracts.
