Disclaimer: If the validity of this post depends on the likelihood that the Packers, exclusively, will trade two first round picks to move the the number 10 pick, than this post should be considered a failure and you'll find the premise dumb.
But if you're like me and generally interested in the events and happenings preceding the NFL draft:
Washington, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle:
I don't know what they have to offer, but I hear the Redskins are trying like crazy to trade up to get one of the quarterbacks, Blaine Gabbert, I imagine. Some mocks have them taking quarterback Jake Locker if they stay at 10. What a reach that would be, but Mike Shanahan loves mobile quarterbacks who can throw on the run.
Check in with Hog Haven for Parks Smith's write up.
Earlier this week word spread that the Redskins were interested in trading out of the number 10 spot, possibly looking to add picks in rounds 2-4. Again at Hog Haven, Steveo26 discusses how he see's the Redskins trading out of the first round.
We've discussed the talent surplus the Packers will face with couple drafts worth of players returning from injury and 8 projected draftees. One thing the Packers might choose to do is to trade up higher into the first round to acquire an elite athlete. When the Packers last traded in the first round, we hit gold (literally) drafting Clay Matthews III and his flowing locks. And if you remember correctly, the Patriots went to the media with their desire to trade down and the Packers responded quickly. The Redskins seem to be going to the media with their desire to trade down, so the 10th pick of the draft is attainable for the right price, and there should be some pretty exciting prospects left on the board that the Packers and other teams drafting later in the first round will have access to if the Redskins decide to trade down.
