While it's been widely assumed that Chase Young will be gone after the first two picks, a report Wednesday from Ian Rapoport suggests the dynamic edge rusher could fall to Detroit.
The Redskins, long thought to be Young's destination, have opened up the possibility of drafting a quarterback second overall. And after Cincinnati and Washington, Detroit is the only other team that's "reached out" to Young.
But if Young is on the board, the conversation is over.
Is Washington truly considering a QB at No. 2? That's the question, and no one outside those walls really knows. But with a new regime taking over, led by head coach Ron Rivera, everything is on the table. And Rivera has notably avoided declaring Dwayne Haskins his starter.
This could all work out perfectly for the Lions. As much as they seem to love Okudah, they have to be even more enamored with the idea of a defensive line anchored by Young and Trey Flowers. It's always seemed like a longshot, and maybe it still is.
But as the draft draws near, there's suddenly a hope.
