Day 1 of the NFL draft is over and the Redskins have selected Ohio State DE Chase Young with the #2 pick. Washington rejected trade offers that obviously weren’t enough to get them to pass on the best player in the draft. The Redskins still have 6 draft picks, and are hoping to gain more by trading Trent Williams. Day 2 starts tonight at 7pm, and the team currently only has one pick, the second pick in the 3rd round(#66).

Below is a collection of Day 2 mock drafts. There is a wide variety of positions and players being projected to the Redskins 3rd round pick. Washington has plenty of needs, and there should be a number of players that fall to that pick. We have options at OT, WR, TE, CB, and S.

Who do the Redskins draft tonight?

Lucas Niang, OT, TCU

Replacing Trent Williams’ level of play will be difficult, but the Redskins could land a solid tackle prospect with the 65th pick in Niang. He’s only falling in the draft because of injury concerns. Before he was hurt, though, some thought he would be a first-round pick. In the NFL he’ll have to switch from right to left for Washington, but any offensive tackle taken in the third round has some flaws.

Hogs Haven(Shoup)

Jaylon Johnson, CB, UTAH

After the first round of the draft the Redskins probably have the weakest corner group in the league. To make matters worse the Cowboys and Eagles both added a premier receiver in this draft. Jaylon Johnson is a nice value pick at this spot, offering nice size and athletic ability. He’s at his best as a press corner, but can play a variety of techniques. He should push for a day 1 starting job.

Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame

If the Redskins are building around Dwayne Haskins, they’ll need to get him more weapons.

Sporting News(Iyer)

Hunter Bryant, TE, Washington

The Redskins need tight end help with Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed gone. Bryant (6-2, 248 pounds) is a dynamic athlete who can get down the seam and cause coverage problems with his good hands, toughness and quickness finishing routes.

Walter Football(Campbell)

Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame

The Redskins could use a starting tight end.

Kmet was one of the best tight ends in college football during the 2019 season, catching 43 passes for 515 yards and six touchdowns. At 6-foot-6, 262 pounds, he has good size for the NFL with the ability to become a three-down starter. Kmet had a huge jump in production compared to his sophomore year, when he totaled only 15 receptions for 162 yards.

Walter Football

Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame

The Redskins need a tight end, especially in the wake of Vernon Davis’ retirement. Cole Kmet would be a nice weapon for Dwayne Haskins.

Pro Football Network(Cummings)

Prince Tega Wanogho, OT Auburn

The Redskins have their quarterback and their blue-chip defender. Now it’s time to enter the protection phase with their assets. Prince Tega Wanogho is an athletic, big-bodied lineman who projects well as a starting left tackle.
