The Redskins drafted Liberty wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round. Liberty might be small, but Gandy-Golden is not, nor was his production for two years in college. 

In two seasons for the Flames, Gandy-Golden posted 150 catches for nearly 2,500 yards and 20 touchdowns. He averaged more than 16 yards-per-catch and has prototype NFL size at 6-foot-4 and 220 lbs. 

He was an explosive player in college, and while it was outside of the Power Five conferences, Gandy-Golden showed up against major competition. In two games against ACC opponents, Antonio Gandy-Golden went for 12 catches for 179 yards and a TD. 

Don't buy it? Watch the tape.

Gandy-Golden will join a Redskins wide receiver group with more questions than answers. Terry McLaurin is entrenched as the top wideout, and Steve Sims seems to have a firm grip on the slot role. After that there will be open competition among Kelvin Harmon, Cody Latimer, Trey Quinn, Cam Sims and maybe even third-round pick Antonio Gibson, although he looks like more of a running back. 

The Redskins leadership talked about wanting to get more weapons for young quarterback Dwayne Haskins. This pick is a step in that direction.
