Looking ahead at the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins are expected to find a massive upgrade for their defense with the No. 2 overall pick. Chase Young, the superstar pass rusher from Ohio State, should be the obvious selection with this pick. There have been rumors that the Redskins could go a different direction, but that seems very unlikely.

However, the Redskins do not have a second-round pick, as they owe that to the Indianapolis Colts. Unfortunately, that leaves them having to wait until the third round to target any other positions of need.

One of the main needs that the Redskins need to try to focus on is wide receiver. Terry McLaurin appears to be the team’s No. 1 wideout, but they need to bring in another receiver or two.

Washington will be on the clock for the second time with the second pick of the third round at No. 66 overall. Thankfully, there will still be a few intriguing options that they could choose from.

All of that being said, let’s take a look at the three receivers the Redskins could target in the third round of the NFL Draft.
