After moving on from Trent Williams via trade during this offseason, the Redskins can now focus on the future of the franchise. Building an offense around 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins will be of the utmost importance for the next couple of years, but not without making the proper moves elsewhere.

Offensively, Washington needs to develop talent in the skill position areas. This will take more pressure off of Haskins and allow other guys to make plays for him. One of those guys has been a mainstay in the NFL for a while, but Father Time could come calling by the end of the 2020 NFL season.

The ageless wonder that is Adrian Peterson is still going strong in the league. This is not to say there will not be a job for him in the NFL, but the league has moved past his style of tailback. Also, Washington has some young guys waiting in the ranks to take on the workhorse role.

Derrius Guice was a second-round pick back in 2018, and is looking forward to having a fully healthy season. With a rejuvenated Guice alongside a recovering Bryce Love (remember him?) already on the roster on top of the additions of JD McKissic and Peyton Barber, the backfield is deep in Washington. Come next season, All Day could be the odd man out, especially since he'll be a free agent after 2020.
