Grade: Lucky/Good? Who Cares!
The Redskins first two picks were as good as any in recent draft history if you consider where and who they got these prospects. You can make the argument that Haskins was the QB in this draft best suited for the NFL, and that Sweat was the best pass rusher.
McLaurin was a favorite of many, including ours. He is an elite leader and will be a foundational piece of this offense, even if he doesn’t emerge as a start.
A little early for Love, his knee isn’t looking great. If he gets healthy, he can be a dynamic weapon, but they have too many question marks with their RBs and need a more stable prospect.
Really like Brailford, especially where they got him. Looked good during the draft process and can get pressure off the edge. Would have gone much higher in most years.
