Of course, after going 3-13 in 2019, the Redskins possess the No. 2 pick in the first round of this year’s draft. It is assumed that Washington will choose to select the standout edge rusher, Chase Young, with the second overall pick.

But after the Redskins select a player in the first round, they won’t be on the clock again until the third round. To be exact, Washington’s second pick in the draft will come with the No. 66 pick.

In the event that the Redskins want to add a running back, there are a few options in the middle rounds. One name that Washington could take a look at is Zack Moss out of Utah. Over the past three years, Moss has carried the load for Utah, exceeding 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in each season from 2017-2019

For the most part, Moss is a running back that looks to inflict pain on defenders with his physical running style. There’s a decent chance that Moss is available for the Redskins in the third or fourth round. Albeit, there are better fits for Washington’s offense in this year’s draft.
