The Redskins really want Blaine Gabbert or even Cam Newton but both will be gone by the time they get a pick in the first round.
They Redskins could settle with Julio Jones or J.J Watt, but they could do more damage if they trade in this spot. If the Patriots can’t talk anyone else out of this pick, the Redskins are the perfect trading partners. The Patriots have plenty of picks to give to Washington and this would allow Mike Shanahan to get a quality quarterback and nab an extra pick all at the same time.
The trade talk will be fast and furious as draft day approaches and it could change the entire landscape of the 2011 NFL draft.
