The Redskins - those geniuses who traded a second round pick for Jason Taylor (who played five games for them) - have now traded a second round pick this year and a third or fourth round pick next year for Donovan McNabb.
This opens the door for the Steelers or some other team to trade up to get the number four pick in this year's draft. Here's why.....
The Redskins now have only four picks in this year's draft...
Round 1 - number 4 overall
Round 4 - number 103 overall
Round 5 - number 135 overall
Round 7 - number 211 overall
And their offensive line is dreadful, dreadful, dreadful.
For an older team with very little quality depth, the Skins need an infusion of youth and draft choices.
Assuming the Skins don't draft Jimmy Clausen at number four, their biggest need is bodies up front. And they might be in a position to trade down to 18 ... so long as they get a third rounder as well...and maybe a fourth or fifth. You can certainly get a quality offensive lineman at number 18....and can probably get another one in the middle of the third round. The Skins need two offensive linemen, and need numbers. The Steelers have numbers, but need a quality game-changing defender or offensive lineman.
The Steelers have several supplemental choices, and while they can not trade those, they can certainly trade their regular pick in those rounds.
Is it worth it....perhaps for a shot at Suh or the best DB in the draft? What can the Steelers offer?
