Every year, teams like to move up in the NFL Draft, and often it is to get a quarterback. The Washington Redskins could be in prime position to trade down if they don’t like any of the players on the board.
The Washington Redskins are in a terrific position with the No. 13 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. It looks like the team is going to land a top defensive player, and it seems that they are targeting Minkah Fitzpatrick and Da’Ron Payne as the top options right now. But, there’s also a possibility that the team could make a move and trade their pick.
Right now, it’s unclear what the prime position to trade down from will be. But, as it stands, there are five quarterbacks who could potentially go in the top 15 picks. If one of these players is still on the board when the Redskins are picking, a team wanting a quarterback may be willing to trade up to get them. The Cardinals and the Chargers are both teams that could potentially select a quarterback, so getting into the top 14 could be a move that some teams want to make.
Trading down may not be the right move, depending on how the board shakes out. But, if there are options to move down, the Redskins should look at them closely. That said, here’s a look at three teams that could try to make the trade with the Redskins.
