The Washington Redskins are entering year one of the Ron Rivera-era and year-two of the Dwayne Haskins experience. While many have Ohio State’s Chase Young pegged as the No. 2 overall pick, this mock draft examines what the team should do with that selection as well as the rest of their 2020 picks.
Round 1 – No. 2 – Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
The value of a cornerstone defensive player is nothing to scoff at, though the Redskins should take a page out of Ron Rivera’s tenure with the Panthers.
During Rivera’s first season in Carolina, the team drafted Cam Newton. They took defensive players in four out of the next five seasons after that, which includes the selections of Luke Kuechly and Star Lotulelei. Within that timeframe, the Panthers reached a SuperBowl; Washington can take a similar strategy with hopes of the same goal.
