The Redskins Have 10 Picks In The 2017 NFL Draft


The league announced before the weekend every team's picks for this April's NFL Draft. The Washington Redskins have 10 picks at their disposal this year thanks to some trades made last year by general manager Scot McCoughan. Here's a look at where they're all located.

Ordered by the round-pick and then by the overall pick.

4-7-114 (acquired from the New York Jets)
5-10-154 (acquired from the New Orleans Saints)
6-25-209 (acquired from the Houston Texans)
7-2-220 (acquired from the San Francisco 49ers via Derek Carrier trade)

As part of the Carrier trade made last year, the Redskins sent one of their fifth-round picks to the 49ers and received a seventh-round pick from them in exchange.

In the first two drafts under McCloughan, the Redskins have spent both of their first round selections on offensive players – offensive lineman Brandon Scherff and wide receiver Josh Doctson. It remains challenging to predict what the team will do with it's 17th overall selection because free agency has not yet begun.

Depending on what free agents Washington brings back to the team this year, or adds from the free agent pool, that could impact their thoughts on whether to draft defense or offense. McCloughan is always in favor of adding more picks to this and future drafts, too, so trades are also never out of the question.
