Washington Redskins: one team has ‘laid out a complete deal’ for No. 2 pick

Per source, the Washington Redskins continue to take calls regarding the No. 2 overall pick, and at this time, one unknown team already has a “complete deal” on the table to acquire the pick.

Fantasy Impact

Additionally, Josina Anderson is reporting that a team in the top-7 has been trying on multiple occasions to speak with Ohio State DE Chase Young ahead of the Draft. The team did not state whether or not these talks with Young occurred, but nonetheless, it appears there could be some fireworks very early in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Washington Redskins have begun to receive calls about No. 2 overall pick

The Washington Redskins are widely expected to select Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

The expectation is still that Washington holds onto the pick and selects Young, but every NFL team is doing their last bit of homework in the days leading up to the draft. There is a ton of uncertainty near the top of this year's draft, with a number of highly-touted quarterback prospects and teams with the second, third, and fourth overall picks not appearing to have an immediate need at the position, leading to lots of speculation about other teams trading up.

Redskins expected to select Chase Young, but haven’t ruled out a QB

While the Washington Redskins are likely to select DE Chase Young from Ohio State, there’s still a possibility they could throw a curveball in the Draft and select a QB with the second-overall pick.

Fantasy Impact

Even if the Redskins do go off-script and select a QB (most likely Justin Herbert or Tua Tagovailoa), teams around the league don’t believe Young will drop past Detroit at number three. This news could potentially throw a loop in Miami or Los Angeles’ draft plans, as both teams probably expect their QB to be available with the fifth and sixth overall pick. The top of the first-round could get very interesting if Washington goes with a quarterback over Young at number two.
