Redskins receive one compensatory pick, now have 7 draft picks

Two months away

The NFL announced this year's compensatory picks and now the draft order is officially set. The Redskins received a 4th round pick for Jamison Crowder who signed with the New York Jets last year. They would have likely received a 7th round pick for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, but they refused to cut Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie before he got himself injured.

The Redskins now have 7 draft picks heading into the 2020 NFL draft on April 23 in Las Vegas. This includes the #2 overall pick that many people expect to be used on Ohio State DE Chase Young unless a massive trade comes along.

Washington traded their 2nd round pick (along with their 2019 2nd) to the Colts last year to trade back into the 1st round to draft OLB Montez Sweat. That pick turned into the 34th overall pick for Indy. If the Redskins don't trade back and pick up another 1st or 2nd, they wouldn’t pick again until #66 in the 3rd round.

The 4th round gives Washington two chances to improve the team. They hold the 2nd pick along with the comp pick received today.

They also hold their original picks (2nd in each round) in the 5th and 7th rounds. The Redskins swapped their 6th round pick with the Broncos 7th round pick last year as part of the trade to acquire QB Case Keenum.

Round 1: 2nd pick, 2nd overall

Round 3: 2nd pick, 66th overall

Round 4: 2nd pick, 108th overall

Round 4: 36th pick, 142nd overall

Round 5: 2nd pick, 148th overall

Round 7: 2nd pick, 216th overall

Round 7: 15th pick, 229th overall
