NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins

     

Cowboys

Eagles

Giants

  • NFL Network Analyst Daniel Jeremiah views Louisville OT Mekhi Becton as the “best fit” for the New York Giants in the 2020 NFL Draft, per Chase Goodbread
  • Giants GM Dave Gettleman‘s love for big players is well-documented, so it’s a good bet he’ll love the 6-7, 370-pound Becton. While there’s a decent chance the Giants could trade down and land Becton, as there’s no consensus on the draft’s top offensive tackles, Jeremiah thinks Becton is worth the No. 4 overall pick: “To me, Mekhi Becton is an absolute freak. I’m not in the business of trading off freaks at a need position. He’s a left tackle. He’s a better version of (12-year NFL starter) Bryant McKinnie. He’s going to be that guy for the next 10 to 12 years to protect your franchise quarterback. He’s so big, so long, so athletic [that] even when he is not perfect, it doesn’t matter because nobody can get through him.” (Ryan Dunleavy)

Redskins

NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah expects the Redskins to select Ohio State DE Chase Young at No. 2 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft instead of trading down. 

“I just don’t trade off of elite edge rushers,” Jeremiah said, via Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports. “You have a need there at the position, those guys are hard to find. So to get a player like that you would have to blow my doors off to get me to trade off that pick, if I was the Washington Redskins.”

Should Washington trade down, Jeremiah does not think Young would slide past the Giants at No. 4 overall.
