ESPN NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay was not available during last month’s draft as he was recovering from the coronavirus. Coming out of the draft, he has shared some of his thoughts on how the event went.
He recently listed five instant impact players who were selected on day three, and one such player is former Liberty wide receiver and current Washington Redskin Antonio Gandy-Golden.
“Terry McLaurin looks like the real deal, but Washington doesn’t have much at receiver for Dwayne Haskins or Kyle Allen beyond the sophomore speedster,” McShay wrote. “But landing Gandy-Golden in the fourth round at 142nd overall gives the Redskins a big, physical possession target. A lot of teams had third-round grades on the Liberty receiver, and for good reason. He is a natural hands catcher, and while he doesn’t have a ton of speed, he can find pockets in zone coverage and break some tackles with his strength.”
Many NFL and Redskins scouts believe AGG has the potential to break into the starting lineup as a rookie and be Washington’s 2nd receiver to McLaurin.
