3 (66). Antonio Gibson, WR, Memphis
4 (108). Saahdiq Charles, T, LSU
4 (142). Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty

The Redskins didn’t necessarily need Chase Young, but this was a slam dunk pick. They now have a lot of talent on their defensive line, and for now this is the focus of the team. They are five deep now, but it should be noted that the talent didn’t match the production last year. Their might be weak link on that defensive line that has been the beneficiary of the talent around them.
The rest of the draft for the Redskins was logical, good fit pick after pick. Charles has some concerns, but is going to the best place to get himself straight. They need him to perform well, or else they will be looking again next year for a left tackle.
Hudson will be in heaven operating behind and around that defensive line. If they can limit their pass rush to 3 or 4 the rest of that defeense will flourish.

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.
