Give the Redskins credit for not letting a team like Atlanta entice them to trade the No. 2 pick used on Chase Young – widely touted as this draft’s top prospect and a man who should elevate a defense teeming with potential.
Third-round RB Antonio Gibson, fourth-round OT Saahdiq Charles and fourth-round WR Antonio Gandy-Golden are intriguing prospects for a team that needs playmakers, and any could have been taken sooner.
TE Thaddeus Moss was signed after going undrafted.
In sum, nice job by new coach Ron Rivera. As far as the previous regime, Washington should’ve gotten more in the trade of LT Trent Williams, but give credit for mortgaging this year’s second-rounder in order to get 2019 first-round DE Montez Sweat.
