Second Round

Washington does not have a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The No. 34 overall pick belongs to the Indianapolis Colts because Washington moved back into the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft to select defensive lineman Montez Sweat No. 26 overall out of Mississippi State.

Third Round

OT. TCU Horned Frogs. 66. player. 872. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Lucas Niang

With offensive tackle being the Redskins’ biggest need entering the 2020 NFL Draft, they should take Lucas Niang out of TCU with the No. 66 overall pick in the third round. At 6-foot-7 and 328 pounds, Niang has the frame to hold his own at either tackle spot in the league for years to come.

Assuming Washington finally parts ways with disgruntled offensive tackle Trent Williams, Niang is a guy who could step right in and compete for a starting job right away. At times during the draft process, Niang had a first-round grade. However, Niang’s senior season was cut short due to a torn hip labrum. He initially opted to play through it but did miss the second half of the year.

Though there are injury concerns with Niang, he was hardly ever penalized in college. A highly disciplined player could be key in helping the Washington offense find his footing. Assuming the medicals check out, Niang could be a great value pick for the Redskins with their second of two top-100 selections. They need to get a tackle and this is when they can do it in the draft.
