Washington wants to trade up?

I don't know what they have to offer, but I hear the Redskins are trying like crazy to trade up to get one of the quarterbacks, Blaine Gabbert, I imagine. Some mocks have them taking quarterback Jake Locker if they stay at 10. What a reach that would be, but Mike Shanahan loves mobile quarterbacks who can throw on the run.

The Bengals aren't the most active  on draft day, but this could be a good move for the team.  They already have experience trading with Shanahan (Deltha O'Neal) plus I don't think the team is as sold on the top QB prospects as the other teams.  Shanny could move up to #4 if Gabbert is still available and the Bengals could move down to #10 to pick up WR Julio Jones while also picking up an extra 2nd rounder (#41 overall) and a late 5th rounder (#155).  The trade value is pretty even on this deal.

By the way, the only way I'd do this deal is if Patrick Peterson is already off the board.  Talk of him slipping to SF is just plain stupid.  The kid is just too good of a player to fall out of the top 5.  I'd think Zimmer would find 1,000 ways to use him as a distrupting force on the defense...
