ASHBURN, Va. -- The pick is in, but not the 21st, at least for the Redskins.
Washington traded its first round pick to the Houston Texans for an odd package that including the 22nd selection. With that pick, the Redskins turned in their card for TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson.
In addition to swapping first round picks, Washington received a sixth round pick, but in 2017. That's the odd part, though general manager Scot McCloughan is a fan of adding selections regardless.
Here's the quick bio on Josh Doctson
Position: Wide receiver
Speed: 4,50 40-time
Vertical: 41 inches
Prospect rank: Scout (34), Mike Mayock (27), Rob Rang (26)
Analysis: The Redskins don't have an immediate need at receiver, but will perhaps next season with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson set to enter free agency. Doctson can help immediately with his red-zone size. Washington needs defensive line help, but can take advantage of the deep class of tackles on Day 2.
