With the 2020 NFL Draft right around the corner, teams are putting the final touches on their draft boards. While this draft will be different, being conducted virtually, there’s still the same intrigue. Here’s a look at some of the NFC East Draft Notes. 

Draft Notes: Washington Redskins

  • Redskins holds the No. 2 overall pick, but nothing again until pick No. 66 in the third round. They also hold two fourths, a fifth and two sevenths. 
  • Kenny Stills might be on Washington’s radar, according to Aaron Reis of the Athletic. They released WR Paul Richardson, but added Cody Latimer in free agency. 
  • Surprisingly, the Redskins were among the teams noted as “doing work” on Jordan Love, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
  • In 1999, Washington traded the No. 5 overall pick to the Saints for eight picks, all of New Orleans’ ’99 draft as well as a 1st and 3rd in 2000. The Saints drafted Ricky Williams. They might be looking for a similar ransom for the No. 2 pick this year. 
  • Needs: TE, CB, OL, S

Draft Notes: New York Giants

  • New York holds 10 picks, including two in the top 36 and four seventh rounders.
  • Giants GM Dave Gettleman said the team could trade down from  No. 4 overall. “It’s something I will very seriously entertain,” Gettleman said Friday on a conference call with reporters.
  • New York has had “deep internal discussions” regarding Isaiah Simmons at No. 4. According to Jason La Canfora, they are “deeply intrigued” by Simmons. 
  • Most analysts assume the Giants will select an offensive tackle at No. 4 if they don’t trade down. Among those getting serious consideration there are Tristan Wirfs and Jedrick Wills
  • Needs: OT, Edge, CB, WR, LB

Draft Notes: Dallas Cowboys

Draft Notes: Philadelphia Eagles

  • Eagles have eight picks after trading two to Detroit to get Pro Bowl CB Darius Slay. They hold the No. 21 overall, one in the second round (No. 53), one in the third (No. 103) & three in the fourth.
  • Four of GM Howie Roseman‘s eight first-round picks have been defensive linemen.
  • Baylor WR Denzel Mims revealed on a Philadelphia radio show that he’s “talked to the Eagles a lot.”
  • Roseman has conducted 26 draft-day trades in his time as GM. With six picks in first four rounds, they have the draft capital to move up for an elite WR prospect if need be.
  • Needs: WR, DB, LB, OL, DL
