Redskins’ No. 2 pick in NFL Draft 2020 suddenly in high demand

The consensus has been that NFL Draft 2020 really begins with the Detroit Lions’ pick at No. 3 overall, with Joe Burrow first to the Cincinnati Bengals and Chase Young second to the Washington Redskins a fait accompli.

Not so fast. Two days before the draft kicks off, NFL Network reports teams have started calling the Redskins with interest in acquiring the No. 2 pick.

The Redskins, it seemed, were quite content with taking the Ohio State stud pass-rusher with the second pick, but it’s always possible a desperate team comes knocking with a bounty Washington simply can’t refuse, which is why the club isn’t hanging up the phone.

What’s unclear from the report is whether teams would want to trade up to grab Young, or potentially get ahead of the ever-changing quarterback dynamic that will follow LSU’s Burrow going first overall. There’s been plenty of speculation about teams potentially trading up with the Giants at No. 4, or even the Lions, to take either Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa or Oregon’s Justin Herbert. Would a team badly wanting a quarterback trade up to No. 2 to avoid any risk of its quarterback target being taken by someone else?

With more than 48 hours until the first round commences, the rumor mill surely will continue to churn.
