How will the Washington wide receivers shake out? - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff offers thoughts on the Washington wide receiver situation

This group isn't as wide open as some of the other teams, but there is still some unknown in Washington. Who is the top option for Alex Smith? Paul Richardson Jr? Josh Doctson? Jamison Crowder? Is there any reason to expect noteworthy production from the likes of Trey Quinn, Brian Quick, Simmie Cobbs, or Maurice Harris?

Devin Knotts: This is going to be controversial as I know our staff is quite split on this, but my guy is Paul Richardson Jr. Josh Doctson is entering his third season and just has not done enough for me to buy into the hype. He was an incredible talent coming out of college but was likely overdrafted as the NFL was still recovering from the incredible 2014 NFL Draft which might be the best wide receiving draft of all time. Doctson would have been at least a second-round pick in the 2014 draft, so do not get hung up on that Doctson was a first-round pick while Richardson was a second-round selection.

I expect Paul Richardson Jr to play a role similar to Tyreek Hill played in Kansas City with Smith. While Richardson isn't quite as fast as Hill, he is a legitimate deep threat that will be relied upon to stretch the defense which is something that the Redskins did not have last season.
