The Washington Redskins could consider drafting a quarterback in April, despite the fact they used a first rounder on Dwayne Haskins last year.
New head coach Ron Rivera confirmed such rumbles on Wednesday when he told reporters at the NFL Combine that the organization plans on meeting with both Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa, two of the most coveted quarterbacks in the 2020 pool.
In other words, Dwayne Haskins' job might not be as secure as previously thought, and Fox Sports personality Doug Gottlieb made a shocking revelation that will only have fans in D.C. more inclined to see the Redskins draft a QB with the No. 2 overall pick.
Of course, we cannot confirm whether or not Gottlieb's claims are true, but the timing of this report is alarmingly convenient. Just a few hours ago, ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper appeared on "First Take" to say that Washington should take Tagovailoa if the team is encouraged with his medical exams.
The Redskins have been linked with selecting Ohio State star pass rusher Chase Young for months now, but that hypothetical pairing was only made under the assumption that the franchise is convinced that Haskins is their gunslinger of the future.
When asked about Haskins and his ceiling as an NFL signal caller, Rivera has done nothing but speak highly of the former Buckeye. Who knows what the Redskins are plotting, but these developments prove that they will be a team to keep a close eye on as we inch closer to April 23.
