Washington is young all over the board. It begins under center with Dwayne Haskins and continues with Derrius Guice in the backfield. The wide receivers in Washington are young with a bright future.

Terry McLaurin emerged as a legitimate No. 1 threat during his rookie season. Steven Sims and Kelvin Harmon, who will miss 2020 with a torn ACL, also showed promise. Washington added Antonio Gandy-Golden in the draft out of Liberty. Cam Sims and Trey Quinn also lurk on the depth chart.

There is talent there, but they all have one thing in common, which is the fact that they are relatively unproven. Washington showed their willingness to sign a receiver when they offered Amari Cooper a deal that was larger than the one he signed in Dallas. 

If the team is still interested in adding a receiver prior to 2021, Cooper Kupp is a strong option. Washington will have flexibility to spend in the offseason. With a defense that is all but solidified with Chase Young, Washington needs to invest more in their offense.

If the young receivers turn out to be productive, Kupp could be the cherry on top of the unit and help Haskins take the next step.
