In the 2020 NFL Draft, the Washington Football Team was picking second overall. They just came off a miserable 3-13 season and one of the best players from college was available at a position that they didn’t necessarily need. They already had Ryan Kerrigan and Montez Sweat as their edge rushers. They also had Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, Tim Settle, and Matt Ioannidis on their defensive line as well. Clearly taking Chase Young was far from a need; however, with him being debatably the best player in the entire draft, Ron Rivera simply couldn’t pass on him. His pure talent and upside all showcased at Ohio State definitely made him worthy of the second overall pick.
This Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks travel to D.C. in order to face Washington Football Team. I am really worried about how the Seahawks will fare against Washington’s elite defensive line. Who will Brian Schottenheimer and Mike Solari choose to double team in this game? Sweat is having a great season so far, but guys like Allen and Payne present a big problem up the middle as well. I think we should see a pretty interesting matchup between Duane Brown and Chase Young on the edge as Young typically lines up on that side of the formation.
