The Redskins started their draft off with a smart move by GM Bruce Allen to trade down from the 34th selection to the 47th pick; gaining a third rounder by doing so (78th overall). The Redskins had plenty of options at 34, and they knew someone they liked would still be there at 47. The real victory of this trade was gaining an extra third rounder, as a team with a lot of holes and only six draft picks, gaining a high draft pick was a smart move by the Redskins.

With the first round of the NFL draft now complete, it is time to examine the Redskins options at 34. The Redskins could go a few directions with the 34th pick. The most obvious pick would be offensive line, with Players like Morgan Moses, Joel Bitonio, Cyrus Kouandjio, and Xavier Su’a Filo. The Redskins could use upgrades along the offensive line, especially at right tackle, so all these picks would make sense.
