The NFL finished assigning compensatory draft picks Tuesday (including the 32 compensatory picks awarded to 15 different teams and the ninth and 10th picks after a coin toss), and the Washington Redskins’ official order is as follows:
Round 1, pick 13
Round 2, pick 12 (44th overall)
Round 3, pick 14 (78th overall)
Round 4, pick 13 (113th overall)
Round 5, pick 12 (149th overall)
Round 6, pick 14 (188th overall)
Round 7, pick 13 (231st overall)
Round 7, pick 23 (241st overall)
Note: This third-round pick was traded for the Chiefs’ QB Alex Smith and will show as Kansas City’s after the start of the league year March 14. The extra seventh-round pick came from the Los Angeles Rams last year when Washington traded TE Derek Carrier to them.
Although seven picks might be all the team has now, don’t be surprised if Washington ends up with more by the time the draft has come and gone. President Bruce Allen is not only rather stingy with the team’s money, he has been known to garner additional draft selections during the event.
This year’s draft takes place from April 26–28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington,...
