Redskins trade with Cowboys

The Redskins wanted to add more picks, and that's what they did in the second round. Washington traded the No. 34 pick in the draft to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for two picks.

Washington picks up the Cowboys' second-round pick (47th overall) and third-round pick (78th overall). Dallas selected pass-rusher Demarcus Lawrence at 34.

This is the move I felt Washington wanted to do all along, knowing that one defensive player they really liked -- linebacker Marcus Smith -- was drafted in the first round. They like a number of other defensive players but weren't in love with any of them enough to choose anyone. They also like several offensive tackles, who could be in play at Nos. 47, 66 (the Redskins' pick in the third) and 78.
