NFL draft rumors: Redskins eye trade into first-round?

The Washington Redskins are once again without a first-round draft pick after mortgaging their future in order to draft Robert Griffin III in 2012, so they will need to wait it out until Day 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft before they are on the clock.

However, according to a source who spoke with Walter Football, the Redskins could be eyeing a trade up.

Charlie Campbell of writes:

Sources with the Redskins tell that they believe some good talents are going to fall to the Nos. 30-34 range. Washington’s first selection is the second pick of the second round, so moving up into the Nos. 30-32 range could cost as little as a mid-level third-day pick.

If getting into the first round can cost the Redskins a third-day pick like Campbell believes, then we would have to think there is a real shot that Washington could jump into the mix.

What position they would target remains to be seen, but they could certainly use help anywhere.
