Three teams have contacted Washington about trading for the No. 5 overall pick, a source tells John Keim of ESPN.com (on Twitter). A second source tells Keim that if Washington wants an impact pass rusher, they shouldn’t go below No. 8 to get one. Naturally, any trade would be contingent on who is available at No. 5 (link).
Even though they’ve received inquiries, there’s nothing serious brewing on the No. 5 pick yet, a source tells Mike Jones of the Washington Post (on Twitter). Meanwhile, Dianna Marie Russini of NBC 4 (on Twitter) hears that Washington is hoping to take Dante Fowler Jr. at No. 5. If he’s not on the board, then they’d turn their attention to the offensive line.
Earlier this week, Washington general manager Scot McCloughan said he’d “love” to pick up as many as ten picks in this year’s draft. The new GM currently has seven to work with.
