Team Needs

Offensive Tackle

The Washington Redskins believe that they have found their franchise quarterback in Dwayne Haskins. If that is the case, the Redskins need to find a way to protect them. With the issues going on with the Redskins and left tackle Trent Williams, they need to find his replacement to protect Haskins blind spot. The Redskins added Cornelius Lucas this offseason, that is not their long term fix. If the Redskins want to move away from Chase Young, they could draft who they feel is the best offensive tackle in this year’s draft class.

Wide Receiver

Washington hit a jackpot on their middle round selection, Terry McLaurin, that played with Haskins at the Ohio State. The focus is not finding a No. 1 receiver but getting another guy for Haskins that can also pair up with McLaurin. If the Redskins want to move back in the draft, they could draft a CeeDee Lamb or a Jerry Jeudy that could really improve their team. If they want to hold out until the third round to pick a receiver, its ok, this receiver class is very deep.

Edge Rusher

The Washington Redskins currently have a passing duo in Montez Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan. Kerrigan is coming off his worse season since coming into the league, getting a very capable edge rusher in Chase Young could make this defensive line from good to great. The Redskins have a very hard decision to make this offseason in regards of the draft.
