Will the Redskins draft Chase Young? Dwayne Haskins hopes so


It's been a rough campaign for the Redskins this season. Washington finished 3-13 and winless in the division, their worst record since 2013.

But on the bright side, Washington is slated to select second overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, giving them the chance to add a tremendous talent to an already promising young group.

With the No. 2 overall selection, many believe the Redskins will select Chase Young, as the Bengals will likely take LSU's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, Joe Burrow. Young is a highly-touted pass rusher from Ohio State.

Should the Redskins take Young with the second overall selection, the edge rusher would reunite with multiple former Buckeye teammates, including quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

The rookie quarterback was asked about Young on Monday during the Redskins locker room cleanout, and Haskins smiled when describing his former teammate and the draft.

"Two words: Chase Young. That's all you got to say," Haskins said. "He's somebody who's like a game-wrecker, someone very hard to stop."

In just 12 games, Young finished with a Big Ten record 16.5 sacks and 21 tackles for loss. He dominated the line of scrimmage while constantly being double- and sometimes triple-teamed.

Like Haskins, Young grew up in a Washington, D.C. suburb and is a graduate of DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Md. 

"He's from this area, so we'll see what happens," Haskins said.
