To make up for the absence of Washington's first round pick, Jon Gruden and Bruce Allen will have to hit on their late-round picks in the draft.

Minus a first-round pick for a second consecutive year, the Washington Redskins will have to scour the later rounds of the NFL draft to find the impact player they'll miss out on.
