2019 NFL Combine Who To Watch: Parris Campbell


As the Redskins have many areas they would like to focus on and address this off season, including pass rush and quarterback, adding a receiver could also be an option.

"The Redskins might look to add to their pass rush in the first round, but receiver will be on their radar. Campbell has outstanding speed and may be able to transcend how he was used at Ohio State -- often as a catch-and-run target rather than a downfield receiver -- but the combine could play a big part in determining that."

Campbell departs Ohio State after being named an All-Big Ten receiver three times, and a second team All-Big Ten return specialist in 2017. Campbell capped off an outstanding career posting school records in catches (90), touchdowns (12) in 2018, and became only the fifth Buckeye to record 1,000 receiving yards in a season.

Campbell, projected as a day two selection (Rounds 2-3), would provide the Redskins with not only a speed threat, but a wideout with sure hands and the ability to create after the catch, something the Redskins tout in skill players, as Jamison Crowder, and Chris Thompson thrive on exactly that.

For the Redskins scouting staff, the NFL Combine presents an opportunity to gather more reports on players they have scouted for years, ultimately leading up to April's NFL Draft.

Let's take a look around the NFC East on who fellow division opponents will be watching in Indy according to's report.

New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

Philadelphia Eagles: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama

Dallas Cowboys: L.J. Collier, DL, TCU
