Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum isn't necessarily viewed as the starter inside the team's building. Colt McCoy, despite undergoing another leg procedure recently, is still a possibility to become the starter heading into the season. It means that the Redskins are very much in the mix to draft a quarterback, possibly even in the first round, in this week's draft. Both Keenum and McCoy are game-manager types that would be very mediocre QB2 options for fantasy owners in a starting role in D.C.
The Washington Redskins aren't very serious about trading up in the first round into the top five picks, according to sources. Washington's calls about trading up are "Bruce Allen being Bruce Allen." Washington sits at No. 15 overall and could really use a quarterback despite trading for Case Keenum in the offseason. However, it doesn't appear that they'll give up the farm to be able to select one in the top five picks on Thursday night.
The Washington Redskins are unsure if they want to select a quarterback with their first-round pick, and they are also in disagreement on the top QB on their draft board, with owner Bruce Allen and general manager Dan Snyder liking Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, while some in the organization prefer Duke's Daniel Jones, according to sources. The 'Skins are also an option to move up from the No. 15 pick in order to get a quarterback of the future, but it remains to be seen if they'll pull the trigger on a trade on Thursday evening. If they do take a signal-caller in the first round, he could sit for a year behind either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy.
The Washington Redskins selected Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins with the No. 15 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. The Redskins wanted to potentially move up into the top 10 to take Haskins, but they didn't even have to move at all to get him. Some teams didn't even have a first-round grade on Haskins, so there is some bust potential, but the 'Skins don't mind gambling on him. They traded for Case Keenum in the offseason, but he's not the long-term answer and Alex Smith (leg) may never play in the NFL again. Haskins may wind up making starts in 2019, but don't count on it. He can do it all in the pocket and has great accuracy and touch. He'll be a popular pick in dynasty drafts.
The Washington Redskins traded up with the Colts and selected Mississippi State edge rusher Montez Sweat with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Sweat's draft stock dropped significantly because of a heart issue that made many teams take him off their draft boards entirely. He showed excellent combine speed and has incredibly long arms. Sweat is a gifted athlete, so he could be an absolute steal in this draft if his health issues don't hamper him in his NFL career. Washington needs a pass rusher to replace Preston Smith, so Sweat should help them do that.
