Washington already traded a sixth-round pick to the Denver Broncos for veteran quarterback Case Keenum and a seventh-round selection this offseason, though Keenum isn't a long-term solution.
The question will be which quarterbacks are available at No. 15, assuming Washington doesn't trade up.
In his latest mock draft, B/R's Matt Miller had Oklahoma's Kyler Murray going No. 1 overall to the Arizona Cardinals, Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins No. 6 to the New York Giants and Missouri's Drew Lock No. 10 to the Denver Broncos.
Miller projected Duke's Daniel Jones for Washington, though he added the team could go in a different direction if the Cardinals draft Murray and put Josh Rosen on the trade block:
"There is a theory among NFL evaluators that Washington could be the team to trade for Josh Rosen if the Arizona Cardinals make him available. That would give the team a starting quarterback and long-term answer at the position while likely costing just a second-round draft choice.
"Without predicting trades, the Redskins go after the NFL-ready, poised Daniel Jones from Duke. He's a smart, sharp passer who is ready to hit the field on Sundays after being well-coached by David Cutcliffe in college."
So Washington will have options. Clearly, however, further addressing the quarterback position should be a primary focus for a team that has gone 7-9 in each of the past two seasons.
