The NFL Scouting Combine begins Tuesday February 26th and ends Monday March 4th. Over 300 NFL draft prospects have been invited to compete in drills at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana to showcase their talents. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will consist of players arriving for registration, hospital pre-exams, X-rays, orientation, medical examinations, measurements, team interviews and bench press. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be televised on live TV, as on the field workouts begin that consist of 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump, three-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle and then position-specific drills. NFL Network will air live coverage of all on-field workouts and ABC will be airing coverage on the quarterbacks and wide receivers on Saturday. 

Which prospects should the Redskins keep an eye on? The Redskins should have a long list of prospects that will be competing at the scouting combine. Among the 300 plus NFL draft prospects the Washington Redskins will need to draft: Quarterback, wide receivers, edge rushers, safeties, offensive lineman and inside linebackers. The Redskins 2018-2019 season was plagued by injuries and mainly injuries that were season-ending and for that not to reoccur in the 2019-2020 season, the team must draft reliable players. Three prospects to watch as a Washington Redskins fan would be Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf, West Virginia quarterback Will Grier and Florida State edge rusher Brain Burns. 

The Redskins are in desperate need of a quarterback. Josh Johnson and Mark Sanchez are not the answer for the team’s future. The 2019 quarterback draft class could help fill this vacant position as Alex Smith’s NFL career is in doubt. Quarterbacks are a premium in the NFL and this year’s draft class is full of high potential quarterbacks like: Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray, Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins, Missouri QB Drew Lock, Duke QB Daniel Jones, N.C. State QB Ryan Finley and West Virginia QB Will Grier. Everyone has Ohio State’s quarterback Dwayne Haskins going 6th overall to the New York Giants. Oklahoma’s quarterback Kyler Murray’s draft stock continues to rise and may not be available when the Redskins pick at 15. Other quarterbacks like Missouri’s Drew Lock or Duke’s Daniel Jones could be available for the Redskins to draft in April. Washington has multiple draft needs and quarterback is one of them, but the Redskins will need to protect that key position. I have the Washington Redskins drafting Alabama’s offensive lineman Jonah Williams with the 15th overall pick in my mock draft 1.0.
