Now that the compensatory picks have been determined the NFL has announced the full order for next month’s draft. The Redskins, of course, traded away their first-round pick to acquire the rights to Robert Griffin III so that leaves them with their own picks in rounds 2-7 plus an extra one in the fifth that came in the Albert Haynesworth trade.

Here are the Redskins picks and, just for fun, a look at some of the best players drafted in that slot along with all the players the Redskins have taken there.
