The Washington Redskins still have options to trade up in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Washington Redskins have seven picks in the 2020 NFL Draft but only one comes in the first 65 picks. With the second pick overall, the Redskins have a million scenarios they can run through including trading down or even just selecting a prospect.

These scenarios have been well documented for the Redskins but what about moving up in the draft with other picks or even the second overall? Although the potential to move up is limited due to draft capital there are a few scenarios that could be successful.

The areas that need the most improvement on the Redskins are cornerback, safety, linebacker, wide receiver, tight end and offensive line. So without trading down, the Washington Redskins have three options at number two. The obvious pick here is Chase Young which is what almost all draft analysts believe is going to happen.

I am part of the minority that thinks this pick should and will be Isaiah Simmons as he would help in filling part of all three of there top needs on defense. Lastly, there are a few people still with the thought that the Redskins could take Jeffrey Okudah to solidify an outside corner spot.

Each selection I make will be explained with an analysis of what occurred before the pick and how that pick will impact the remainder of the 2020 NFL Draft and the team as a whole. All trades will show pick numbers that were traded away, received and be based on draft chart values, thanks to Drafttek.
