2. Washington Football Team – Original Pick: Chase Young
The Washington Football team had a lot of needs entering the 2020 NFL draft, with the most glaring need being at QB. Instead of drafting for need, the Football Team went with the best player on the board, Chase Young. Young was dominant at Ohio State and was clearly the best defensive player in the draft.
In his rookie season, Chase Young was simply spectacular, winning Defensive Rookie of the Year. He finished the season with 7.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles, all while anchoring Washington’s defense into the playoffs. Young is a generational talent and has clear potential to become the best defensive player in the NFL.
New Pick: Chase Young
I really wanted to have the Football Team going with Justin Herbert here as they still have an obvious need at QB but Young is just too special to pass on. For a team like Washington, they knew they had too many holes to fill to draft for need. Going with the best player on the board worked out pretty well for them, as they ended up winning the putrid NFC East and getting their guys some playoff experience.
