Six games still remain in the 2012 season, but it's never too early to peek into the future of the Washington Redskins.
This week, we'll look forward to 2013 with an extra-early Redskins mock draft.
In April, the Skins will be on the clock and under pressure, with just seven picks in six rounds. They'll also be without the luxury of a first-round choice.
That selection disappeared on March 22, when Washington consummated a blockbuster trade with St. Louis to draft Robert Griffin III with the second-overall pick of 2012.
In that trade, Washington swapped the No. 6-overall choice to move up four spots in the first round. Then they handed the Rams their second-round pick (in 2012) and a pair of first-round selections over the next two years.
That sounds like a lot for one man, but so far, Griffin appears to be worth his weight in gold. In fact, he appears to be the right man, in the right place, at the right time. Patience is all that's needed from here on out.
As for 2013, here are the rest of Washington's draft choices:
Round 2: One selection
Round 3: One selection
Round 4: One selection
Round 5: Two selections (second one is from Washington's trade of Albert Haynesworth to New England on 07-28-11)
Round 6: One selection
Round 7: One selection
It's always fun to look ahead, so let's toss a few darts at Washington's draft board, in the hopes that some of them will find the bull's-eye five months from now.
