Washington Looking To Move Down From No. 5 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Apr 30, 2015 3:51 pm

Washington is open to trading down from the No. 5 slot in the NFL Draft as Scot McCloughan rebuilds the roster.

"There's no question that the Redskins would like to trade down. The question is whether or not they're going to get value in doing that," Albert Breer said. "They have seven picks right now over the next three days. Scot McCloughan said himself on Monday that he'd like to get that number closer to 10. The problem is the way this draft shakes out, you don't want to drop out of the top 15. They're limited to as how far they'd be willing to drop down and they'd still like to fortify those lines of scrimmage."

When McCloughan was with the San Francisco 49ers, the team selected three offensive linemen, a defensive lineman, a linebacker and a tight end in the first round.
