NFL Draft Rumors: Redskins fielding offers for No. 34 overall pick

Fans of the Washington Redskins must be getting antsy.

The Redskins did not make a pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, owing the second-overall pick to the St. Louis Rams from the trade in 2012 that netted the Redskins the second-overall pick, which they used to select former Baylor Bears’ quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Redskins’ fans may have to wait even longer.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Redskins are fielding offers for their first pick in the draft, the 34th-overall selection in the second round.

Per a league source, G.M. Bruce Allen is listening to calls from teams interested in moving up for a quarterback or a receiver with the second pick in round two…

Allen, we’re told, is being patient, realizing that the deals will get better, not worse, as Friday unfolds.  Then, Allen can decide what to do with the pick once he’s on the clock.

This could be the chance for a team to come up and get their quarterback in Fresno State Bulldogs’ quarterback Derek Carr. Former Southern Cal Trojoans’ wide receiver Marqise Lee, former Florida State Seminoles’ defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and former Notre Dame Fighting Irish nose guard Louis Nix could also be available.
