Redskins will have seven picks in 2012 NFL draft

The NFL has released the official order for April’s college draft, and the Washington Redskins will have seven picks.

Two of the team’s picks come as a result of the trade with Oakland (in 2010) that sent Jason Campbell to the Raiders, and the trade that sent Donovan McNabb to Minnesota last season.

The Redskins parted ways with three picks in this year’s draft, sending the sixth overall pick, and their second-rounder to St. Louis for the second overall pick. And last July they sent a sixth-round pick, along with defensive end Vonnie Holliday, to Arizona in exchange for Tim Hightower.

The Redskins’ 2012 draft picks are as follows:

First round: Second overall pick

Third round: Sixth pick; 69th overall

Fourth round: Seventh pick; 102nd overall

Fourth round: 14th pick; 109th overall*

Fifth round: Sixth pick; 141st overall

Sixth round: Third pick; 173rd overall#

Seventh round: Sixth pick; 273rd overall

* - Compensation from Oakland for Jason Campbell

# - Compensation from Minnesota for Donovan McNabb
