Expert: Todd McShay, ESPN

  • Selection: Marquise Brown, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma
  • Date of selection: March 6th, 2019
  • Previous Selection: Cody Ford, Offensive Lineman, Oklahoma
  • Date of selection: December 12, 2018

Analysis: N/A

Expert: Mel Kiper Jr, ESPN

  • Selection: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State
  • Date of selection: March 25, 2019
  • Previous Selections:
  • Drew Lock, Quarterback, Missouri (Feb.18th)
  • Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida (Dec. 17th)
  • Analysis: “With a void left by Preston Smith signing with the Packers in free agency, the Redskins go with the best edge rusher on my board in Burns (6-foot-5, 249 pounds), who is rising after the combine. He can bend the edge as well as any pass-rusher in this class."

Expert: Will Brinson, CBS Sports

  • Selection: Kyler Murray, Quarterback, Oklahoma
  • Date of selection: January 24, 2019
  • Previous Selection: Daniel Jones, Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: January 9, 2019
  • Analysis: “The Redskins PANIC when they see Haskins go off the board and they see the Dolphins up after the Packers. So they make a splashy trade up with Green Bay and grab Murray. Washington trading up in the first round to grab a Heisman Trophy-winning, mobile, Big 12 quarterback? What could go wrong!”

Expert: Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports

  • Selection: Daniel Jones, Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: April 8th, 2019
  • Previous Selections:
  • Hakeem Butler, Wide Receiver, Iowa St. (March 11th)
  • Marquise Brown, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma (March 4th)
  • Daniel Jones; Duke, Quarterback (Feb. 11th, Feb. 24th)
  • D.K. Metcalf; Wide Receiver, Ole Miss (Feb.1st, April 1st)
  • Kelvin Harmon:Wide Receiver, NC State (Jan. 7th)
  • Analysis: “Is this too high for Jones? Maybe, but NFL teams seem to be higher on him than the media. He'll give Washington a much-needed franchise quarterback who is as close as you're going to get to Eli Manning is in this draft class (he played for David Cutcliffe at Duke)."

Expert: Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports

  • Selection: Marquise Brown, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma
  • Date of selection: April 14, 2019
  • Previous Selections:
  • Noah Fant; Tight End, Iowa (March 22nd)
  • Kyler Murray; Quarterback, Oklahoma (Feb.22nd)
  • Deandre Baker; Cornerback, Georgia (Jan. 4th)
  • Analysis:In this scenario, with Rosen in the mix, the Redskins fall in love with Brown's well-rounded game and the vertical element he'd bring to the offense for their new franchise guy."

Expert: Conor Orr, Sports Illustrated

  • Selection: Dwayne Haskins, Quarterback, Ohio State
  • Date of selection: March 19th, 2019
  • Analysis: "A gift for Washington, who, depending on the long-term outlook of Alex Smith, needs someone to develop behind bridge starter Case Keenum. Jay Gruden is a good enough coach to get this team near .500, which means it’s probably his best chance of nabbing a franchise passer in the coming years."

Expert: Luke Easterling, USA Today

  • Selection: Daniel Jones, Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: February, 19th, 2019
  • Previous Selections:
  • Greedy Williams; Cornerback, LSU (Jan. 29th)
  • N’Keal Harry;Wide Receiver, Arizona State (Dec. 19th)
  • Analysis: “It’s hard to imagine Alex Smith being ready to play at any point in 2019, and there’s nothing currently on the roster that screams starting-caliber NFL quarterback. Don’t be surprised if Washington sees the early run on quarterbacks and makes somewhat of a panic move, even just a few slots in return for a third-round pick, to secure a raw but promising passer like Jones to build around.”

Expert: Zach Buckley, Bleacher Report

  • Selection: Daniel Jones; Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: March 13th, 2019
  • Previous Selection:
  • Deionte Thompson; Safety, Alabama (Jan. 9th)
  • Analysis: N/A

Expert: Walter Cherepinsky, Walter Football

  • Selection: Daniel Jones; Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: April 17th, 2019
  • Previous Selections:
  • D.K. Metcalf; Wide Receiver, Ole Miss (April 9th)
  • Drew Lock; Quarterback; Missouri (Jan 17th)
  • AJ Brown; Wide Receiver, Ole Miss (Jan. 9th)

Analysis: “Daniel Jones has positive arm strength and athleticism, and he could be a top-15 pick because of his upside. In fact, Charlie Campbell reported that three NFL general managers believd he'd be the first quarterback taken in the 2019 NFL Draft when polled during the Senior Bowl (obviously, second now in the wake of Murray's surge.) Some are comparing him to Carson Wentz."

Expert: Chad Reuter, NFL.com

  • Selection: D.K. Metcalf; Wide Receiver, Ole Miss
  • Date of selection: March 28th, 2019
  • Previous Selections:
  • Brian Burns; EDGE, Florida State (Mar. 7th)
  • Daniel Jones; Quarterback, Duke (Feb. 26th)
  • Jonah Williams; Offensive Lineman, Alabama (Feb. 5th)
  • Analysis: "Washington needs a playmaking receiver in the worst way. Metcalf met with the team at the combine, so we'll see if he made a good impression."

Expert: Dan Kadar, SB Nation

  • Selection: Drew Lock; Quarterback, Missouri
  • Date of selection: April 22nd, 2019
  • Previous Selections:
  • Clelin Ferrell; Defensive End, Clemson (April 15th)
  • Devin Bush; Linebacker, Michigan (April 1st)
  • Drew Lock; Quarterback, Missouri (March 18th)
  • D.K. Metcalf; Wide Receiver, Ole Miss (March 11th)
  • Mock Trade: Redskins send 15th pick to Arizona for Josh Rosen and the 65th overall selection (March 5th)
  • Daniel Jones; Quarterback, Duke (Feb.25th)
  • Byron Murphy,;Cornerback, Washington (Feb. 11th)

Analysis: "Lock is one of the more controversial players in the first round of the draft. He’s almost certainly going in the first 32 picks, but where is difficult to peg. Washington makes sense because of Alex Smith’s injury and Case Keenum and Colt McCoy are average, at best. Lock can be the team’s future."

Expert: Maurice Jones-Drew, NFL.com

  • Selection: Jawaan Taylor; Tackle, Florida
  • Date of selection: February 12th, 2019
  • Analysis: “Taylor is a big tackle who can immediately help an offensive line that was plagued by injuries in 2018."

Expert: Jared Dubin, CBS Sports

  • Selection: Daniel Jones; Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: April 10th, 2019
  • Analysis: "Daniel Jones, QB, Duke: Washington nabs Jones here, which is what motivates the Giants to swing their trade for Rosen, having missed out on the QB they would have taken at No. 17 overall."

Expert: Bucky Brooks, NFL.com

  • Selection: Marquise Brown; Wide Receiver, Oklahoma
  • Date of selection: March 19, 2019
  • Previous Selections: Daniel Jones; Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: February 27th, 2019
  • Analysis: "Brown is arguably the best deep threat in the 2019 NFL Draft as a speedster with exceptional quickness and burst. He could play in the slot or give Washington another weapon on the outside."

Expert: Charley Casserly, NFL.com

  • Selection: Clelin Ferrell, Defensive End, Clemson
  • Date of selection: April 9th, 2019
  • Previous Selection: Daniel Jones, Quarterback, Duke
  • Date of selection: February 19th, 2019
  • Analysis: "The Redskins have been looking for a pass rusher to play opposite Ryan Kerrigan for years."

Expert: Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

  • Selection: Greedy Williams; Cornerback, LSU
  • Date of selection: March 21st, 2019
  • Previous Selection: Jachai Polite; EDGE, Florida (Jan.29th)
  • Analysis: "Any consideration of a quarterback here could be superseded by Washington's need for immediate cover help."

Expert: Danny Kelly, TheRinger.com

  • Selection: Devin Bush; Linebacker, Michigan
  • Date of selection: April 15th, 2019
  • Previous Selection: Devin White; Linebacker, LSU
  • Date of selection: March 21st, 2019
  • Analysis: "Bush has a dense, rocked-up frame with powerful legs and a thick upper half. He’s an explosive blitzer with nitrous oxide boosters in his feet, racking up 10 sacks in the past two seasons. The team captain and AP second-team All-American is comfortable dropping back into space, can easily carry running backs into the flat, and has the speed and physicality to cover tight ends up the seams. He has the tendency to grab ahold of pass catchers at the top of their stem, so he’ll need to learn to be more subtle. In the run game, Bush embodies his alma mater’s Wolverine mascot, flying downhill to deliver ferocious hits and separate the ball from the carrier. He sifts through the trash to meet the runner in the hole. He’s capable of flying from sideline to sideline to chase down runners. Bush needs to clean up his pursuit angles and can get engulfed by offensive linemen moving downfield. He false-steps at times and can get lured away from the action by misdirection."
