2011 NFL Draft Trades: Redskins Trade With Jaguars, Acquire Second-Round Pick

For months, people have speculated as to what the Redskins will do with their first round draft pick. A lot of observers suggested the Redskins should trade back. And sure enough, that's what happened. The Washington Redskins traded their first round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for Jacksonville's 16th and 49th pick, giving Washington an additional second round pick.

The Redskins had a tough decision at their original tenth pick. Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert was available for Mike Shanahan but the team chose to trade back rather than pick the potential franchise QB.  The question is, where does the team go from here? The team could go in a number of directions at 16, with plenty of defensive talent left on the board. 

Something else to look out for is the Redskins to potentially move back into the first round to grab someone late. 

The last few picks have been unpredictable, and from this point forward, who knows who will be the newest member of the Redskins.
