The full 2013 NFL draft order has been released, so the Redskins know exactly where they’ll be picking as they attempt to make up for what has been a quiet start to free agency.

The Redskins’ first pick comes in the second round, at No. 51 overall, after the Rams picked up Washington’s first-round pick (No. 22) in last year’s trade that led to the Redskins’ selection of Robert Griffin III.


The Redskins also will pick 85th (third round), 119th (fourth), 154th (fifth), 162nd (fifth), 191st (sixth) and 228th (seventh).

Pick No. 162 came from the Patriots as part of the 2011 trade that sent Albert Haynesworth to New England. That positive doesn’t quite outweigh the negative of the $18 million salary cap penalty, thanks largely to Haynesworth’s contract, that has kept Mike Shanahan and Co. from being real players in free agency.

As Rich Campbell noted in today’s print story about the Redskins’ pass defense, Washington could very well target safety help with its first pick at No. 51.
