10 players Eagles should fear most joining NFC East in 2020 NFL Draft
By Dan Parzych
All things considered, chances are Joe Burrow ends up going to the Cincinnati Bengals with the top overall pick, meaning the LSU star quarterback won’t be available for the Redskins to select at No. 2.
But in case the Bengals decide to throw a curveball by going with arguably the top defender from this year’s class in Chase Young at No. 1, it’s difficult not to wonder if the Redskins at least explore the possibility of adding Burrow.
Even though Washington spent a first-round pick last season on Dwayne Haskins, the Arizona Cardinals from last year’s draft are the perfect example of how there’s nothing wrong with taking a risk in upgrading at quarterback if it turns out to be a better option.
With all due respect to Josh Rosen since the youngster still has plenty of time to develop into a great NFL quarterback, but Kyler Murray clearly has more potential, and it was on display during his rookie campaign in 2019.
After watching Burrow’s record-breaking season with the Tigers this past season that resulted in helping the team earn a National Championship, a strong case can be made that he would be the better option over Haskins.
Plus, if the Redskins were to be in this position to consider Burrow, they could either keep Haskins to have another option at backup, or simply explore trade options for the former Ohio State star.
