Offensive Line Depth

The Redskins one strong point on the offensive line is Brandon Scherff but he is currently playing on the franchise tag which means next year there will be a gaping hole if he is not resigned. Across the rest of the offensive line, there are many patches but no real building blocks.


At guard, they currently will deploy Scherff and Wes Schweitzer as their starters. They recently signed Jeremy Vujnovich for depth but they need to look toward the future and in case they can’t resign Scherff. Even if Scherff does resign they should be looking to upgrade from Schweitzer.

The 2020 interior offensive class is relatively weak but there are a few strong options in the middle rounds including Shane Lemieux, Solomon Kindley, Robert Hunt, Logan Stenberg or a later option such as Calvin Throckmorton.


The offensive tackle class is much deeper and also an immediate need due to the Trent Williams situation. The offensive tackle class is extremely deep and although there is a clear cut top four, there are about ten options that could start and many more players that will have starting potential in the future.

Tight End

The last position of need is a tight end which will be hard to address with this draft class. The 2020 tight end group is one of the most shallow in quite some time. The Washington Redskins added two depth tight ends in free agency, Richard Rodgers and Logan Thomas, but with Jeremy Sprinkle still the starter, they should be looking at what options they have to add another piece to the puzzle.

There are a few pass-catching tight ends in the 2020 NFL Draft who could fit including Brycen Hopkins, Hunter Bryant, Cheyenne O’Grady and Harrison Byrant.
