NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday on Up To The Minute Live that they have inquired about trading up into the top five.
“The Redskins have explored the possibility of trading up all the way into the top five,” Garafolo said. “I don’t think that, I know that. I can report that. They have had conversations with all of those teams. But look, everybody is having conversations with everybody right now. Just to figure out what the price would be — what if. But the fact that they’re at least exploring it tells me that they’ve thought about the possibility.
“Now maybe if we’re to take Doug Williams at his word, he thinks that the price is going to be too high to do that. But Dwayne Haskins is a guy that has a lot of support in this building, I can tell you that much. We know about the connections with owner Dan Snyder and his son, those two went to school together. He’s a local kid, he’s got a lot of the tools. He had great production last year at Ohio State. But is he a player that can help this team right away? I know there are folks inside this building that think that that is not that case. That he might need some time to learn the offensive system; to learn life at the NFL level he only has that one year of production and maybe they think we should go with a guy that can help us right away and we can build around Case Keenum.”
