Redskins in talks with Denver to move up to #2 overall?


Redskins in talks with Denver to move up to #2 overall?

Hot off the “Twitter-presses” comes this series of Tweets from Jason La Canfora, a senior reporter for the NFL Network and former Redskins beat writer for The Washington Post:

* Spoke Monday about the Redskins interest in trading up to No 2 to land a QB. @KaraHenderson, reporting from Denver today, echoed that and…

* Others reporting similar versions as well. I’m not convinced the Skins can’t land Gabbert at 10 but several GMs believe they will move to 2

* Several GMs I’ve talked to believe Skins will move to 2 to make sure they get Gabbert. I think he’d likely be there at 10

 

 

A trade up to #2 overall would take a very ambitious and even more costly package of current & future draft picks, and possibly even some players, to execute. This would be difficult because of Washington's lack of picks this year.

However, a move of this nature doesn’t seem to be without merit. There were a ton of rumors circulating on the day of the draft last year that the Redskins were working feverishly to move up to the top overall selection, held by the St. Louis Rams (the Redskins picked 4th overall last year), to go up and grab Sam Bradford of Oklahoma.

While nothing ever materialized on that front, it would be difficult to completely dismiss this new rumor.

Now would the Broncos be enticed by many of the candidates the covet could still be available? If you look at the trade chart I estimate we would looking to get thier 1st round, #10, 2nd round #41, next years 2nd rounder and maybe a later round pick.
