Redskins Hold Eight Picks In 2016 NFL Draft

Posted Mar 29, 2016

Check out when and where the Washington Redskins currently hold their eight draft picks for the 2016 NFL Draft, which will take place on April 28-30.

Check out when and where the Washington Redskins currently hold their eight draft picks for the 2016 NFL Draft, which will take place on April 28-30.

The NFL on Tuesday announced the complete order for the 2016 draft, which will take place once again in Chicago on April 28-30.

The Washington Redskins, of course, hold the No. 21-overall pick in the first round of this year’s draft, but also hold seven more picks.

Here's all of the Redskins' picks entering the 2016 NFL Draft:

-- No. 21 (first round)
-- No. 53 (second round)
-- No. 84 (third round)
-- No. 120 (fourth round)
-- No. 158 (fifth round)
-- No. 187 (sixth round; acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Saints)
-- No. 232 (seventh round)
-- No. 242 (seventh round)

Last season, the Redskins entered the draft with seven picks, but ultimately finished with 10 after trades with the Saints and Seattle Seahawks.

Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan, if given the chance, would like to once again gain draft picks throughout the weekend.

“I preach and preach and preach and I’ll never change: you build through the draft,” McCloughan said at the NFL Owners Meeting in Boca Raton, Fla., last week. “You identify your own – who can play, but not just from a talent standpoint, but from a personality standpoint, character standpoint, a passion standpoint, a competitive standpoint where you know, ‘This guy fits what we’re looking for. We can build on these guys.’ And they teach younger guys how to do it.”

While the Redskins could decide to move up in the draft if someone catches their eye, McCloughan prefers to trade back and collect picks, which, in turn, usually provide youthful depth and sometimes a “diamond in the rough” sort of starter.

Last season, Washington got contributions from fourth-round pick Jamison Crowder, who set the franchise’s rookie reception record, and Kyshoen Jarrett, a sixth-round pick turned key contributor on the defense.

“I’ve been very lucky to have been around some good organizations and really good mentors, that it was never moving up it was moving back and getting more picks,” McCloughan said. “As it is right now, I know we went 9-8 last year. We won the division which was great, we got in the playoffs and lost in the first round. But I’ve got to add to the core of the team and that’s how you do it, through the draft. First, second, third rounders, they’re going to be good players. But the fourth through the seventh and the college free agents, but that’s how you build the core of the team. Solid backups, possibly starters down the line, but really good special teams players. And that’s when you get things rolling, that’s when things are going the right way.”
