The Washington Redskins have been trading down like a frenzy in the 2011 NFL Draft, having picked up several additional draft picks after starting with eight. First, they traded the No. 10 pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for the No. 16 and No. 49 picks. They used the No. 16 pick on Ryan Kerrigan of Purdue. Then, they traded the No. 49 pick to the Indianapolis Colts for the No. 53 and No. 152 picks. Finally, they traded the No. 53 pick to the Bears for the No. 62 and No. 127 picks.
That's a lot of trades, and it gives the Redskins the kind of depth they need. In essence, the Redskins turned the No. 10 pick into the No. 16, 62, 127 and 152 picks. That's a nice bit of work if I say so myself.
