WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The official order of the NFL Draft was released on Tuesday and the Washington Redskins have seven picks at their disposal.

Pending any further trades the Redskins will use the second overall pick to draft the future of the franchise after striking a blockbuster deal with the St. Louis Rams earlier in the month.

The picks in the fourth and sixth round, from the Oakland Raiders and Minnesota Vikings respectively, were acquired by trading Jason Campbell and Donovan McNabb.

The Arizona Cardinals were the recipients of the Redskins’ sixth-round pick (177 overall) by virtue of a trade last year that sent defensive end Vonnie Holliday to the desert in exchange for running back Tim Hightower, who finished the season on injured reserve.

Also of note, the Redskins did not receive any compensatory picks this year.

Here is a look at where Washington will fall on the draft board.

First Round

  • No. 2 (2 overall)

Second Round

  • No picks. The seventh pick in the round was traded to the Rams as part of a deal for the second overall pick in the draft.

Third Round

  • No. 6 (69 overall)

Fourth Round

  • No. 7 (102 overall)
  • No. 14 (109 overall – from Oakland)

Fifth Round

  • No. 5 (141 overall)

Sixth Round

  • No. 3 (173 overall – from Minnesota)

Seventh Round

  • No. 6 (213 overall)
