The NFL Draft is over and the work to get all the rookies ready for the NFL begins. For the Washington Redskins that means first round pick Jonathan Allen and nine other players selected in the 2017 draft. The same scenario exists for the other 31 NFL teams of which the Redskins will face 13 including each NFC East rival twice. Let's begin taking a look at the interesting matchups and scenarios involving the new guys.
Who: Seattle Seahawks
When: Week 9: Sunday, November 5 at 4:05 pm on FOX
Where: CenturyLink Field
* 2nd round -- Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State
* 3rd round -- Shaquill Griffin, CB, UCF
* 3rd round -- Delano Hill, S, Michigan
Major matchup: At one point in time, McDowell was consistently mocked to Washington by draft pundits. Instead, he fell as there are questions regarding how he will pan out in the NFL. He has a high ceiling and low floor. He is gifted physically, but he needs to be consistently motivated. McDowell could very well be the other starting defensive tackle across from last year's second round pick Jarran Reed and see time going up against Shawn Lauvao or Brandon Scherff this year.
Keep an eye

- Week 2: Los Angeles Rams
