The Washington Redskins sure wish there hadn’t been a run on quarterbacks early. With four gone already, it doesn’t appear Washington would be in position to add anyone without it being considered a massive reach.
Either way, the Redskins will want to find someone to replace their veteran, Alex Smith (leg), who is all but guaranteed to miss the entirety of 2019. Perhaps longer.
The good news for Washington is it’s armed with nine picks in this year’s NFL Draft. That’s a lot of trade-up ammo, so one should expect a move to happen on day one. If it doesn’t, and no decent quarterbacks are available, don’t be shocked if the Redskins look to find added weapons for whoever is under center in 2019.
This year’s class at wide receiver is deep and fluid. A number of wideouts could be the first taken at their position this year. But for the Redskins, let’s go with the combination of size, speed and route-running abilities: NC State’s Kelvin Harmon.
He’d be a nice offensive cornerstone to build around moving forward, particularly if he shows off all those traits at the combine.
