What’s the Status of the Redskins Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

The Redskins really have to figure out the position long term, and there’s a chance they may look at a wide out in free agency.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Redskins receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Terry McLaurin (58-919-7), Kelvin Harmon (30-365-0), Steven Sims (34-310-4).

Washington is not likely to use the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft on a wide receiver, but the team could employ a trade strategy to acquire more picks and improve a group that averaged just 11.6 yards per reception in 2019 (30th in the NFL). While McLaurin was a productive rookie last season and forecasts to improve in 2020, new head coach Ron Rivera will likely want to increase the potential at this position.

    Interviews have been with K.J. HILL OSU and big body X receivers.
    HILL seems to be a primary target of the coaches for the slot, I suppose due to his familiarity with DWAYNE HASKINS.
    6’0″ 196, 4.60-40 slow my my standards, 5.99 combine rated, a developmental player.
    My personal pick is CHASE CLAYPOOL X receiver. 6’4″ 238, 4.42-40, 6.35 rated. A starter in second year.
    Unfortunately, he’s gone from unknown to top 40, and right now we don’t have one of those.
    I feel we already have a replacement for PAUL RICHARDSON under a futures contract – EMANUEL HALL a UDFA from last year with excellent speed and size.
    After a year on three different practice squad’s, I think he will fill in as a secondary in McLAURIN’s slot.
    CLAYPOOL and HILL would replace SIMS and QUINN which wouldn’t hurt my feelings.
    A secondary choice after HILL would be DEVIN DURVERNAY U of Texas 5’10 1/2″ 210 4.39-40, 6.00 combine rated, and a better choice than HILL in my opinion.
