There haven't been many rumors about interest in the Redskins #2 overall pick in this year's draft, but there has been plenty of speculation. Ian Rapoport is reporting that teams have started calling to guage interest and price from the Redskins.
Chase Young is still expected to be the Redskins pick on Thursday night, but there are now teams trying to change their minds. It would take a big deal to get Ron Rivera to pass on what many people consider the best player in the draft. Here is what he said earlier this month about trading down:
If you’re going to make a trade and you’re going to go back, that guy that you’re going to take at that spot has to make the kind of impact you need to validate missing an opportunity to take a player that’s a high impact guy. In other words, if you’re going to pass up player A, and you go back and you take player D, player D has to be equal to player A, you know what I’m saying. Because if player A is going to play for you for ten years, and player D might not, did you really get value or did you just get a whole bunch of picks. So you’ve got to be able to sit there and say that the next guy that I’m going to take is going to be that high impact guy. And that’s what I’m looking for, that’s what I believe we need. We need a guy just to come in and really change our football team. To me there’s a few guys on that board that are those kind of players.
