The first blurb I was just going to let go but now I've seen two, which makes it an official whisper.
The Redskins are interested in stockpiling back some of those mid to late round picks that they don't have anymore because of their RFA endeavors.
Specifically the most recent blurb on PFT mentions that they are going to try and stockpile them by trading down their 2nd round pick.
So what if we offer them a cocktail that involves our tradeable 5th round pick, 3rd rounder, our tradeable 7th rounder, an agreement NOT to match Jermaine Haley's offer sheet, Derrick Rodgers (the Skins have poor LB depth too), etc...to get hold of their 2nd round pick.
That would give us a good chance of getting Pisa T, a good LT, or good WR....we'll get two of the three. Heck, I would even settle for the ability to be able to trade both of those 2nd round picks to move up into the late first if someone we really really like starts dropping.
Its a pipe dream I know, it just doesn't seem like we have the ammo, but if you add Arturo Freeman into the mix...well, I think that would put us over the edge.
Just another thing. The Redskins are ALSO thinking about trading Fred Smoot for a SECOND ROUND PICK on draft day.
Guys I know the last thing we would want to see on draft day is us use our 2nd rounder to get another CB prospect, but we're talkin about Fred Smoot here. At the very least I would think we would be able to dangle Fred in trade with someone else to get hold of a viable left tackle....a rare three team trade.
Just thinkin out loud...
