Ron Rivera on where Redskins stand on No. 2 pick in NFL Draft
The Washington Redskins appear to be in the midst of a rebuild after ushering in some significant changes to the coaching staff with the hiring of Ron Rivera. They will have an opportunity to kickstart things with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Washington has a number of vids to fill if they hope to bounce back in the 2020 NFL season. According to Les Carpenter of The Washington Post, Rivera is leaving all of their options on the table at this time:
Rivera said “everything is in play” with the no. 2 pick
The prospect of the Redskins exploring all their options is hardly far-fetched since it is still early in the draft process. It only makes sense that they would be doing their due diligence on such s pivotal part of their rebuild.
It has been deemed a foregone conclusion that the Cincinnati Bengals will take Joe Burrow with the first pick in the draft. Since Washington has already used last year’s first-rounder on quarterback Dwayne Haskins, they could look to shore up their next biggest need, which is pass-rusher. As a result, many mock drafts have them taking Ohio State defensive end Chase Young at No. 2.
Although Young has all the makings of a generational pass-rusher, it seems Rivera is doing what he can to downplay the notion that they will go chalk in April. It will be interesting to see if there are any teams willing to put together a trade package big enough to trade up with them.
