In our last update I wrote that the Washington Redskins’ next move would likely be a trade down for more picks, based on what Scot McCloughan has been saying about his draft plans.
They followed through in a big way, and landed all three of the extra picks they were looking for in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks.
Here’s the details, per Seattle’s Twitter account:
Redskins Select RB Matt Jones With the 95th Pick After trading back in the third round from pick number 69, the Washington Redskins selected University of Florida runningback Matt Jones with the 95th pick (third round) in the 2015 NFL Draft. Jones (6-2, 231 lbs) is a big, downhill type of runner that has good […]

NFL.com’s bottom line: “Smith has been a solid, rotational defensive end for Mississippi State, but nothing too special...
A few minutes before they were on the clock, it sounded like the Washington Redskins would follow through on general manager Scot McCloughan’s promise to add more picks and trade down, but in the end they went in another direction with their second rounder:
#Redskins were a trade back candidate, but looks like they’ll stick, too.

To most fans, it appeared that Scot McCloughan abandoned best player available when he bypassed DL Leonard Williams to select OT Brandon Scherff.
Williams ranked higher on mock drafts by the likes of Mike Mayock and Mel Kiper, Jr.; but then, not one NFL GM participates in those things.
@Russellmania980 99% of Redskins fans had no idea who Williams was about a month ago. Now they...
On the first night of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins chose to pick for need rather than the best player available. That’s why they passed on Leonard Williams and selected tackle Brandon Scherff out of Iowa, who is already becoming a merchandise magnet.

“At 6-5, 319 he is the perfect addition for a team that is looking to move from a zone-blocking scheme to more of a power scheme. His drive blocking is exceptional, with a hard hit on initial contact and relentless drive.”

The Washington Redskins selected Brandon Scherff with the fifth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Scherff will be a huge addition for the Redskins on the offensive line, and was an absolute star on Iowa’s offensive line last year.
At 6-foot-5 and 319 pounds, he is an absolutely beast on the offensive line. He is excellent in both pass and run blocking...
