NFL Mock Draft 2013: Redskins left without first round pick

The Washington Redskins will not pick in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Robert Griffin III led the Washington Redskins to an NFC East crown in 2012, and nearly led the Redskins past the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card round. Washington, though, paid a high price to acquire Griffin III -- and is now left without a first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

As part of Washington's trade with St. Louis last year to acquire RGIII, the Redskins traded their 2013 and 2014 first round picks to the Rams. In SB Nation's latest mock draft, the Rams are projected to select Central Michigan OL Eric Fisher with Washington's pick -- No. 22 overall.

If Washington still had the selection, it's possible the Redskins could target help at wide receiver, as Matthew Fairburn projects wide receivers Keenan Allen, DeAndre Hopkins and Tavon Austin to be selected with the No. 23, 25 and 27 overall picks in the draft.

Still, the Redskins received a franchise quarterback as part of last year's trade -- and one that not only led the Redskins to the playoffs in 2012, but also qualified for the Pro Bowl in his rookie season. Certainly, the Redskins are happy with their trade.

The 2013 NFL Draft will begin on Thursday, Apr. 25, and conclude on Saturday, Apr. 27.
