The Washington Redskins are going to be finally parting ways with Trent Williams this offseason, and maybe they can recoup a second round pick for the veteran left tackle.
Teams have certainly traded more for less talented players in recent years.
With Williams on the outs in Washington, the Redskins are going to have to prioritize bringing in a new cornerstone piece for the tackle position in the offseason, and Tristan Wirfs would be about as good as you could hope for.
The Hawkeyes’ primary starter at right tackle this season, Wirfs has incredible physical abilities with borderline superhuman strength, athleticism, great feet, and excellent technique.
He also proved he could step in at the left tackle position for the Hawkeyes when Alaric Jackson got injured without skipping a beat.
Simply put, this is the most skilled and physically talented offensive line prospect eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft, and he has some stiff competition with Andrew Thomas at Georgia. The Redskins may prefer Thomas for his experience already playing a lot of left tackle, but Wirfs has the better athletic upside.
