scenario for trading down in the first round please?


The possibility of our trading the fourth overall pick for a lower pick in the first round or multiple picks in later rounds has been brought up in many posts lately. I'd like to see some discussion revolve around this.

There a lot of people on here who follow draft strategy and college football, I don't so much but that doesn't mean I'm not interested. I was always under the understanding that the only way to trade down in the first round especially in the first five picks, was to have a much sought-after player available there. Those top five picks are very expensive and hard to sign, so a player chosen there almost has to be a can't miss. In addition, there has to be a team lower in the round that wants that player badly.

The Redskins choose fourth, correct? What player do you think is going to be available and what team is going to have to covet that player so highly to trade up? I'm not being cynical, I'm just admitting I don't know enough to know whether this is feasible or not.

It seems to me that the teams that are most successful at trading out of this position, are teams that have relatively good depth and have the luxury to just "pass"when their turn comes up.Detroit spent most of the off-season leading up to the draft trying to get out of the number one spot because they didn't want to have to take a franchise player. ( or pay for one for that matter) they were not successful, how will the Redskins be if they choose to go this route?
