The Redskins did not make any trades involving their 2015 draft selections, but they were involved in one of the biggest trades in recent draft history. In 2012, Washington sent the St. Louis Rams three first-round picks and a second-rounder for the No. 2 pick, which the team used on quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Last season, Washington went 4-12 and finished in last place in the NFC East. This off-season, Washington signed defensive tackles Stephen Paea and Terrance Knighton. The team also added cornerback Chris Culliver and safety Jeron Johnson.
While it's possible the Redskins could potentially take a quarterback with its pick, it's unclear whether either of the two most coveted passers in this draft—Florida State's Jameis Winston and Oregon's Marcus Mariota—will be available at No. 5. In his latest mock draft, SI.com's Don Banks projects Washington to take former Clemson DE/OLB Vic Beasley.
Below are the selections Washington is scheduled to make in the draft:
Round 1, Pick 5 (fifth overall)
Round 2, Pick 6 (38th overall)
Round 3, Pick 5 (69th overall)
Round 4, Pick 6 (105th overall)
Round 5, Pick 5 (141st overall)
Round 6, Pick 6 (182nd overall)
Round 7, Pick 5 (222nd overall)
