The Washington Redskins traded down from pick 34 with the Dallas Cowboys to pick 47 in the second round. They also received pick number 78 in the third round as well. But what position and what players could the Redskins be looking at for their pick at number 47? Will they still select the best player available or address a need?
They obviously feel as though at least a few of the players they were looking at for pick 34 will still be on the board at pick 47. There are still a few good offensive tackles on the board, and their will be plenty of defensive linemen as well. I would say they will still look to take an offensive lineman at 47.
If either one of Morgan Moses or Cyrus Kouandjio are still on the board I would thin the Redskins will take one. If they are not on the board, then there should be a good defensive lineman there. The likes if Stephon Tuitt, Timmy Jernigan, and Louis Nix might all be on the board at pick 47.
And lie I said before, I’m not crazy about the Redskins trading with the Cowboys, and now we’ll have to deal with Demarcus Lawrence for the foreseeable future, so maybe they do need to grab an offensive tackle in order to negate the pick the Cowboys made with the pass rusher Lawrence.
