No. 2: Washington Redskins Get in the Top 10
This NFL Draft trade scenario gets a bit trickier.
First, the Denver Broncos would have to pass on a quarterback in Round 1, most likely. More on the likelihood of that happening in a moment. Moreover, the Broncos aren’t exactly in need of draft picks now. Not with a total of 11 for 2019 so far. As for 2020, though, that could be a different story for Denver.
But the Washington Redskins are desperate right now, particularly with veteran quarterback Alex Smith all but sidelined for 2019 with his horrendous leg injury. With just five picks in this year’s draft, though, getting any further than the No. 10 spot would be exceptionally difficult.
Even that move, in this scenario, would require Washington dipping into its stock of picks in 2020.
Moving up five spots in the draft order could be done with the Redskins’ second-round pick next year. It would be a bit of an overbid, at least according to the draft-pick trade-value chart. But desperate times call for desperate measures, of course, and the Redskins are desperate, remember?
Unless they’re able to make a move on a thin free-agent market or feel comfortable with quarterbacks like Colt McCoy or Mark Sanchez.
No, probably not.
