Going into last season’s draft, the Redskins had seven draft picks, including the No. 10 pick overall. Umpteen trades later, the Redskins selected Ryan Kerrigan at No. 16 overall, and managed to pick up five extra picks along the way.
So spending a long time pontificating about the Redskins draft slot is probably premature at this point, and borderline pointless altogether. Both head coach Mike Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen have made it clear that they’re in the business of restocking the team’s depth chart with quality, home-grown talent.
Especially after swapping the first and second round picks to move up four slots to the No. 2 overall pick, I would expect the team to continue making adjustments on the day of the draft, to get the players that they like.
But with that being said, the team currently has seven picks. The Redskins’ own Larry Michael breaks down the full story in this month’s special edition of Inside The Redskins:
