Scenario 1 – Redskins pull an Arizona
At last year’s draft, the Arizona Cardinals did something unprecedented. Despite the fact Arizona drafted quarterback 10th overall in 2018, new head coach Cliff Kingsbury wanted his guy to be the team’s quarterback. The Cardinals took Kyler Murray with the number one overall pick and traded Rosen to Miami.
In this scenario, Washington takes a page from Arizona’s 2019 playbook. They draft Tua and send last year’s first-round quarterback Dwayne Haskins (15th overall) packing. No one would be shocked if volatile Redskins owner Daniel Snyder did just that.
Detroit could either take Young, but more likely they will be the beneficiaries of a bidding war. For the sake of argument, they make a trade with either Miami or Los Angeles. The Lions slide down a few spots, still get Okudah and add some much needed prime draft picks to continue building their team. Hello Chase Young, welcome to New York City.
Scenario 2 – An offer they can’t refuse
This time Washington gets a heck of an offer for the second pick. The Chargers step up and send multiple high-value picks to the Nation’s capital. They take their quarterback and Detroit is back in the driver’s seat. The number of bidders is down but the demand for top quarterbacks still dwarfs the supply.
Frantic to get a passer, Miami makes it worthwhile to the Lions to drop down two spots. Detroit once again gets their guy, Okudah, and picks up some needed draft capital. The Fins get their QB and Young falls to the New York Giants at four.
Scenario 3 – Giants move up
First things first, the New York Giants and Washington Redskins making a trade of this magnitude would be the same as finding indisputable proof that the Loch Ness Monster exists. In other words, forget it. Neither one of the rivals would risk the chance of the other coming out better than they did in a deal.

In the third scenario, a quarterback once again goes second overall whether it’s by Washington or someone else who trades up (Miami or Los Angeles). The team who didn’t trade up is confident they can still get a quarterback because the teams ahead of them won’t take one and are content to sit tight. At this point, the New York Giants smell blood. They aren’t the only ones, Chase Young is in play.
Gettleman, however, is the only GM who can guarantee the Lions get Okudah. The G-Men swap picks with Detroit and kicks in a third-round pick next year and fifth-round pick this year to do so. GMDG selects Young with the third pick.
