2018 NFL Mock Draft: Redskins projected to land a top quarterback prospect

2018 NFL Mock Draft: Redskins projected to land a top quarterback prospect

The Redskins' 2017 NFL Draft haul was met with nearly universal acclaim from experts and analysts. But if the 2018 NFL Draft goes anything like CSN's Ben Standig projects it to, those responses will probably be a lot more divided.

As of now, Washington and Kirk Cousins are guaranteed one more year together. Standig predicts that the two sides won't come to a long-term contract agreement, though, which is why he has the team trading up into the top of the draft and then selecting a major quarterback prospect.

"It's 2012 all over again," he writes.

So, which passer does he envision the Redskins ending up with, and for what price? Meanwhile, does the trend of running backs going early continue next April? And how many first-rounders will schools like Alabama crank out next time around?

Former Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens joins Giants staff

Former Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens joins Giants staff

What a difference a year makes for Freddie Kitchens.

After a tumultuous season in his first year as the Browns head coach in 2019, Kitchens was fired at the end of the season. On Monday, reports surfaced that Kitchens would be joining new Giants head coach Joe Judge's staff in New York.

According to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman, Kitchens is expected to be hired as the Giants tight ends coach.

From head coach to position coach in just a month's time, that's quite the fall off for Kitchens.

Kitchens and Judge had previously worked together at Mississippi State in 2005. Kitchens served as the Bulldogs' running backs coach, while Judge was just starting his coaching career as a graduate assistant.

The two have not crossed paths since, but obviously maintained a relationship strong enough for Judge to bring the former head coach onto his staff.

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Terrible news hit America on Sunday when word came out that basketball legend Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter and seven others. 

A tragic event for a man and a player that made an impact far beyond basketball. Bryant was known for many things, but more than any, it might have been his competitive spirit. A five-time NBA champion and an 18-time All-Star, Bryant's play was defined by a fluid game and an unstoppable spirit. 

For Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins, he got to see some of Bryant's spirit up close. Last year, before the NFL Draft, Haskins trained at Bryant's gym in Los Angeles, and their encounters made an impression on the signal-caller. 

"He's definitely a guy that brings a lot to the table as far as how he trains, how he prepares and what he expects out of his teammates. Very, very demanding," Haskins said of Bryant. "I want to be able to have that other tool, being able to have that edge that Kobe had. Of course, I play like that, but I'd be able to lead like that. That's why I studied Kobe."

Haskins is one of many young athletes that grew up watching Bryant, and for plenty, idolizing Bryant. 

After the news broke Sunday, Haskins reacted on Twitter.

Haskins said it well: RIP to a legend. Gone too soon.
