It is hard putting together an accurate mock draft considering all the Washington Redskins’ possibilities, including potential trades. Coach Mike Shanahan has hinted in recent days that he may want to trade up, but with few chips in their hands, the Redskins may struggle to find a feasible, mutually beneficial trade.
While the New England Patriots seem to be the best trading partner for the Redskins, coach Bill Belichick has hinted that he has many suitors and is probably eyeing better trades out there. No other teams appear desperate enough to trade two mid-round picks for the 10th spot. And that’s not even considering the strategy that goes into trading for future draft picks.
A whole book could be written evaluating the potential trades the Redskins could make in this draft. For simplicity’s sake, I am thus going to assume the Redskins keep the picks they have.
