Washington listening to offers for the 34th pick

Mike Shanahan AP

As the Redskins prepare to make their first pick in the 2014 draft, they could end up waiting a bit longer.

Per a league source, G.M. Bruce Allen is listening to calls from teams interested in moving up for a quarterback or a receiver with the second pick in round two.

Former USC receiver Marqise Lee, the 2012 Biletnikoff Award winner, remains available, along with plenty of quarterbacks.

Allen, we’re told, is being patient, realizing that the deals will get better, not worse, as Friday unfolds.  Then, Allen can decide what to do with the pick once he’s on the clock.

He’ll be on the clock in roughly four hours.

    I bet that pick will be feeled out hard by a team wanting one of the qb’s or Marquise Lee .

  2. herkiethehawk says: May 9, 2014 2:45 PM

    can’t blame them. a last place team without a first round pick

  3. barsfordays says: May 9, 2014 2:46 PM

    Eagles should trade 54 and 83 to Wash for 34 and take Marqise! Or, stand pat at No.54 and look for WR Donte Moncrief or CB Pierre Desir

  4. r502 says: May 9, 2014 2:47 PM

    They should keep the pick and draft a legitimate QB.

  5. jjb0811 says: May 9, 2014 2:48 PM

    Drop back a few spots & pick up a 4th. Then do it again & again. We need lots new blood & depth on D & special teams.

  6. toddm1016 says: May 9, 2014 2:48 PM

    This is the spot to get Derek Carr if you’re the Titans or Cardinals.

  7. Wineshard says: May 9, 2014 2:49 PM

    I hear wants an RG3 type of trade.

  8. jayniner says: May 9, 2014 2:49 PM

    Niners need to trade some of their 10 remaining picks and grab Marqise Lee.

    Bruce Allen is so brilliant. Best GM in the NFL. How lucky I am to be a fan of the Washington Redskins, who are GOD’S CHOSEN TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #HTTR #Redskins2015SuperBowlChamps

    Totally forgot that Washington was in the draft.

  11. firesnyder says: May 9, 2014 2:51 PM

    We should probably just snag Ra’Shede Hageman and not try to wheel and deal for low 2nd rounders and high 3rd rounders.

  12. juliusanonymous says: May 9, 2014 2:52 PM

    Hey, the Seahawks will trade you Terrell Pryor for your first-round pick in the next 3 drafts, plus a second.

    Snyder would never do it though because Pryor doesn’t have problems with his knees.

  13. ipskipskyblue says: May 9, 2014 2:54 PM

    The need to draft a player who can help them but they won’t they have to do things to remain the laughing stock of the NFL

  14. dtr3e says: May 9, 2014 2:56 PM

    I say the Jets trade up and take Marquise Lee. They have plenty of picks and WR is one of their main needs.

  15. swaggyy says: May 9, 2014 2:56 PM

    Why don’t teams just offer a mid round pick for that bum RG3?

  16. douchebigelow says: May 9, 2014 2:57 PM

    They could use a QB

    #RG3-13

  17. timbuttrum says: May 9, 2014 2:57 PM

    Trading back would be the best thing for the Skins to do. Too many holes in that roster need filled.

  18. schmitty2 says: May 9, 2014 3:02 PM

    Maybe the Rams will offer up their 44th pick for all of Washingtons remaining picks. It just might work………

  19. aceakking says: May 9, 2014 3:05 PM

    I will give the Redskins a first pick if they change the name.

  20. phonesringingdude1 says: May 9, 2014 3:13 PM

    They should draft a pair of knee replacements.

  21. tmkelley1 says: May 9, 2014 3:24 PM

    Keep the pick and draft a quality OT. They’ve been jerking this lack of a good OT for five years now. Enough already.

  22. zygiwilfsmenorah says: May 9, 2014 3:37 PM

    The clock ticks ever closer for a brave owner to be a man and stop capitalizing on a cartoon of a highly oppressed people.

    Until then- may the wind be in his face, the sun in his eyes and the draft picks dreams of what never will be.

  23. ashure71 says: May 9, 2014 3:44 PM

    Keep the pick and either take Moses, Bitonio, Su’a Filo, or Baptiste.

  24. tomthumbsblues says: May 9, 2014 4:01 PM

    Draft a OL for the right side of the line and then win the division for the second time in three years.
    Sounds like a plan.

    Their offense is going to be very strong. If they can just get their defense to play to an average level, the division will be theirs.

  25. badmoonrison says: May 9, 2014 4:02 PM

    I can always count on an article about the Skins for some awesome jokes. And I dont even root for one of their rivals.

  26. ariani1985 says: May 9, 2014 4:05 PM

    Can the Redskins draft a logo???

  27. bladerunner72014 says: May 9, 2014 4:09 PM

    Washington can’t afford to pass on Louis Nix. Cofield is undersized & old. Defense starts at NT

  28. aliharajli20 says: May 9, 2014 4:12 PM

    I find it funny that everybody thinks that RG3 is a bum. Just two years ago, he had the best rookie season for a QB in NFL history and won Rookie of the Year in a draft class that included Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, Doug Martin and Alfred Morris. But in year 2, he gets rushed from an injury to play, and now he’s a bum? For a guy who recently tore his ACL and didn’t have any preseason action, he wasn’t even that bad last year, except for his TD to INT ratio. Let’s not forget that before he was injured, he led his team to a 14-0 lead against the now defending Super Bowl champions. And this was with one of the worst offensive lines and receiving corps in the entire league!

  29. bladerunner72014 says: May 9, 2014 4:13 PM

    You can get a RT later in the draft. But a NT like Nix you won’t find. He will be better than Ngata or Raji. A force for a decade

  30. jeter3000hof says: May 9, 2014 4:18 PM

    Please take the best offensive lineman. Remember the HOGS!

  31. oldref says: May 9, 2014 4:34 PM

    Plenty of good QBs still on the board — hard to entice teams to trade up until the pickings get thinner.
    WR is best bet, but dropping more than just a few draft slots could spell big problems. Pick 34 is worth 560 points on draft value chart. Eagles need WR (Marquise Lee??). Their #2 (396 points), #3 (160 points), #5 (31 points), and #7 (7 points) come close, but they would have to be desperate to give up that many picks to get someone like Lee.
    A more likely trade might be with the Falcons who have the 38th pick and really need a pass rusher. There are several good ones still on the board. It would cost them their #2 (520 points) and #5 (33 points) plus 6th rd next year. The Skins should still see some good OL players on the board if dropping only four slots.

  32. firesnyder says: May 9, 2014 4:52 PM

    I’m changing my mind. Lets get either A) an offensive tackle or 2) that beast of a nose tackle nix Its the right thing to do. HAVE TO PROTECT GRIFF THIS YEAR.

  33. firesnyder says: May 9, 2014 4:52 PM

    Yes, I said A) and 2)

  34. dcwarpath says: May 9, 2014 4:52 PM

    I love the idea of moving back, but not too far. These are the players I would be targeting (No order) and moving back too far might take you out of the running…

    Cyrus Kouandjio – OT Alabama
    Louis Nix – DT Notre Dame
    Joel Bitonio – OT Nevada
    Marcus Martin – C USC
    Xavier Su’a-Filo – G UCLA
    Timmy Jernigan – DT Florida St
    RaShede Hageman – DT Notre Dame
    Stephon Tuitt, DT Notre Dame

  35. lorcanbonda says: May 9, 2014 4:53 PM

    It would be great to deal this pick. The Redskins need help in the secondary, but there isn’t any safety or corner available here. They can pick a tackle, but they’d be better off getting a quality safety and a tackle in the draft.

  36. tigerboye says: May 9, 2014 4:53 PM

    defense nose tackle better get it now

  37. bobbyhoying says: May 9, 2014 5:05 PM

    The should use the pick to draft a receiver who will speak to the Washington receivers coach on DeSean Jackson’s behalf. Maybe somebody similar to Jason Avant.

  38. cowboyhater says: May 9, 2014 5:28 PM

    No trading within the division Bruce, unless they give you a deal you can’t refuse. I’ll take an extra 4th if the team trading has a high pick in that round. I would also seriously listen to offers for a 3rd if there is a QB needy team looking to deal for Cousins.

  39. wishingtonredslur says: May 9, 2014 5:29 PM

    I’ll give you Kirk Cousins. What do you mean you have one? Oh g, you really do have one. Nevermind.

  40. getyourownname says: May 9, 2014 6:11 PM

    Funny, NOW they value picks and want to fill all the holes. Earlier they wanted one splashy player and redundancy at the same position.

    Today on NFL radio the hosts reviewed all the players the Rams got in exchange for rg3. It was even more than I realized.

  41. blackqbwhiterb says: May 9, 2014 6:33 PM

    Just dont try to get sexy here, take the highest rated kid on your board. Especially if he’s a D-Lineman or O-Lineman.

  42. fjcas says: May 9, 2014 6:40 PM

    Now that Cleve’s next pick will be the WR to replace Gordon, who probably will be suspended by commish for the entire season, failed drug test, could make Washington’s 2nd pick more valuable for a team that wants to jump ahead of Cleve who picks 4th for highest rated WR.

  43. youknowwhatsgoodforshoulderpain says: May 9, 2014 7:04 PM

    Cowboys will offer a half-eaten bag of doritos and season tickets to Cowboy Stadium (nosebleeds, behind a structural pillar) for the pick. That’ll be the best offer they see too.

  44. joparks2012 says: May 9, 2014 7:46 PM

    Well Well Well, looks like it was the Cowboys and they gave up a lot more than a bag of Doritos. Thanks for the 3rd rounder Chumps!

    long live Jerry Jones!
