With two of their seven total picks off the board, the Washington Redskins have a lot of work to do on Saturday if they are going to adequately fill out their roster needs in the 2020 NFL Draft.

While their first two picks have been very well-received by the fanbase, to say the least. neither of them did a whole lot to satisfy positions of need. Taking Chase Young with the No. 2 overall pick was the easy choice, as he was the best player in the draft and the team could add him to an already stacked defensive line for free. However, with the No. 66 pick, the Redskins surprised a few people by drafting RB Antonio Gibson, out of Memphis. If you look past the position designation and the early selection of a RB, you’ll find that Gibson is an extremely talented player who can spread out wide and make a difference in the passing game as well. But to the naked eye, it first appeared like Washington reached for a running back when there were valuable players at positions of need on the board.

So as they enter the Day 3 action on Saturday with the second pick coming off the board in the fourth round, what positions might the Redskins take a look at drafting? Here’s our ranking of needs for the final day of the draft.

No. 1 — Tight End

Notre Dame’s Cole Kmet was the first TE taken off the board, and UCLA’s Devin Asiasi, Virginia’s Dalton Keene, and Dayton’s Adam Trautman followed suit, but for the most part, there are still a number of solid TE prospects left on the board. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Washington take a TE with their first pick on Saturday, but if they don’t there’s no way they make it out of the fourth round without one.
