It’s draft week so there is plenty to look forward to as we continue to shelter in place during the coronavirus outbreak. At least the NFL will give bettors a chance at some action and provide a much needed boost for sportsbooks hit hard by the lack of games with the 2020 NFL Draft taking place as scheduled. For a few days there will be a sense of normalcy. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said it best during these trying times. “It’s important to have normalcy, it’s important to continue on schedule as best you can.”

We will continue on with a look at proposition bets for the Washington Redskins in this article. The Skins are an intriguing team with the No. 2 overall pick. As witnessed by their poor play the last few seasons they certainly could use an influx of talent. Does that mean drafting Chase Young? Or maybe they trade down and stockpile a few more picks since they don’t have a second-round selection. What to do? Washington, you’re on the clock.

Will the Redskins Draft Chase Young?

Yes -1000

No +585

Young doesn’t lack confidence. He recently let everyone know that he’s the best player available in the 2020 NFL Draft. That doesn’t mean he’s going first overall. In fact that spot is reserved for Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. Current draft developments have the Skins linked to a quarterback with Tua Tagovailoa mentioned as a possibility. We’ll talk more about that later. That move doesn’t make sense, though, considering the Skins drafted Dwayne Haskins in the first round last year and traded picks to Carolina for Kyle Allen.

The obvious choice is Young, who can have an immediate impact like Nick Bosa had with the 49ers. Young led the FBS last season with 16.5 sacks and he missed three games. You don’t pass on a talent like that even if the Skins have needs elsewhere. Besides, Ron Rivera is a defensive coach and the Skins were near the bottom of the NFL rankings in yards and points allowed.

Will the Redskins Draft Tua Tagovailoa?

Yes +1046

No -3000

Every team needs a good quarterback to be successful. The pool of players at the top of the list is special and they will all more than likely have decent careers at this level. But will the Skins gamble on taking Tua with the second pick? There is a good reason why oddsmakers are laying heavy odds on that NOT taking place. As mentioned above the Skins used the 15th overall pick on Haskins last year and for a team needing upgrades up and down the roster taking a QB is a comical choice.

And if the Skins had plans on drafting a QB why would they trade a pick to acquire Allen? Allen started 12 games for the Panthers last season coached by Rivera, who also had a hand in swinging this deal. Rivera obviously sees something in the kid and he’ll compete for the starting gig. Haskins should be the guy. He didn’t have great numbers last year, but give him a better supporting cast and he should be fine. It’s a steep price, but drafting Tua shouldn’t even be on the table.

Will the Redskins Trade the No. 2 Draft Pick?

Yes +675

No -1250

This is actually a move that makes a lot of sense. The Skins need help in several areas and acquiring more picks in a loaded draft would certainly help. However, Rivera has a history of holding on to top picks and the Skins would need at least two first-rounders in return to make this work. There are only a few teams that have that kind of draft capital and with the chance to draft a generational talent like Young at No. 2 the Skins better not screw this up.

As much research as teams do on players, there are always the ones that don’t pan out. Guys like Ryan Leaf and JaMarcus Russell immediately come to mind. They were QBs and there is a lot more pressure on them to perform. Young is ahead of everybody in the class and really can’t screw up on defense. I don’t see the Skins trading away a chance to add a formidable player to their roster.
