The Washington Redskins are keeping all of their options open with the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

"Everything is possible, everything is an option," head coach Ron Rivera told reporters at the NFL combine Wednesday, according to Redskins.com's Zach Selby. "We're gonna decide as a group and then we'll go forward from there."

Rivera suggested that the Redskins' decision depends on what the Cincinnati Bengals do with the first overall selection.

"Once that pick goes on, then we'll go from there," he said. "(Vice president Kyle Smith and I) have talked a couple of times already about what situations could potentially be, but the truth is we have to see what happens in front of us."

The Bengals are expected to select quarterback Joe Burrow with the top pick in April.

It's widely believed Washington will select pass-rusher Chase Young second overall. However, Rivera said he's meeting with Burrow and fellow signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa.

In last year's draft, the Redskins picked quarterback Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall selection. Haskins struggled as a rookie, completing 58.6% of his passes for seven touchdowns while throwing seven interceptions through nine appearances.

Rivera, who was hired by Washington following the end of the 2019 regular season, has praised Haskins, but he said Wednesday the signal-caller has to earn the starting job for 2020.

"He's got to grow into it, and nothing will be given," Rivera said. "He's not anointed, that's for sure."
