Redskins have to wait for third round to pick again

Now the wait is on for the Washington Redskins.

After getting Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III with the second overall selection in the NFL draft Thursday night, the Redskins are to be idle for a while.

The draft’s second and third rounds take place Friday night but the Redskins aren’t scheduled to pick again until the sixth choice of the third round, the draft’s 69th overall selection.

They traded their second-round pick to the St. Louis Rams in March as part of the package to move up four spots in the first-round order to land Griffin.

The fourth through seventh rounds take place Saturday and the Redskins are scheduled to have five picks—two in the fourth round and one each in rounds five through seven.
