Redskins day 2 draft predictions
The Washington Redskins have been universally applauded for the way they approached the first round of the NFL Draft last evening. Most sports outlets have given the Redskins “A” grades for landing quarterback, Dwayne Haskins, without having to trade up and trading this year’s and next year’s second rounders to trade up and snag defensive beast Montez Sweat.
The Sweat trade has left the team with two picks coming up this evening, both third rounders. Many fans think (or hope) that the Redskins will put together a package to move up into the second round. I think otherwise and feel that the team will look to address some needs with the two third round picks. There are still some holes to fill, so the team will be looking for a couple of diamonds in the rough to start fairly quickly. Read on to see my predictions.
Round Three (pick 76) – Nate Davis – Offensive Lineman, Charlotte
The Redskins are in need of interior offensive linemen, and Davis may fit the bill. Davis is powerful and athletic and projects as an NFL guard. Davis creates movement in the run game and has all of the tools to potentially be a good pass blocker, even though his pass blocking will need to be thoroughly developed. Davis is a high-ceiling player with a serviceable floor.
Round Three (pick 96) – Andy Isabella – Wide Receiver, Massachusetts
Isabella is a versatile wide receiver that may stay under the radar due to his 5’9 frame. Isabella is a burner, running a 4.31 40-yard dash at the combine. During his senior season in 2018, he was a Biletnikoff Award finalist as the nation’s top receiver and second-team AP All-American. Isabella led the FBS with 141.5 receiving yards per game (1,698, 16.7 per catch) and ranked near the top with 102 receptions and 13 touchdowns. If he falls this far, the Redskins will get a steal.
