‘Skins started 7 fer 7 The Redskins started out with a pretty straightforward draft situation for 2019 — the team had its own (original) pick in each of the seven rounds.Two key transactionsBut two of those picks have been spent already in 2018:The 6th round pick was used to select DB Adonis Alexander in the Supplemental DraftThe 4th rounder was traded away to the Packers this week to acquire 5th year safety Ha Ha Clinton-DixCurrent situationThe net result is that the Redskins have 5 of their “original” picks remaining (1st

 , 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th).Offseason outflowBut this past offseason, the Redskins allowed a lot of veteran free agents to leave for other teams, while signing only one veteran free agent (Paul Richardson) who counted in the Compensatory Draft Pick formula.CLICK TO READ: The 5 O’Clock Club: Explaining how compensatory draft picks work CLICK TO READ:OverTheCap Article - The Basics and Methodology of Projecting the NFL’s Compensatory Draft PicksCompensatory draft pick estimateOverTheCap, who have a really strong track record at accurately projecting compensatory draft picks, published this cancellation chart to estimate the picks that Washington is likely to be awarded ahead of the 2019 draft:No team can be awarded more than 4 compensatory picks in one off season, so the Redskins appear to be in line to get:a 3rd round pick (Kirk Cousins to Vikings)a 5th round pick (Trent Murphy to Bills)a 6th round pick (Ryan Grant to Colts)a 7th round pick (Niles Paul to Jaguars)The league tightly controls draft picks these daysWhile there may have been shenanigans in the past related to NFL execs trading picks they didn’t have, the league office has, for many years now, had a strict control system in place for tracking draft picks and who owns them.Compensatory picks are tradeable these days (since the 2017 draft) Womens Shawn Lauvao Jersey , but not until after they have been awarded by the NFL Management Council.The picks are awarded at the annual league meeting in March, so we have a long wait until the compensatory picks are in hand.These ‘comp’ picks are used to select players at the end of the designated round, after the 32 ‘regular’ selections have been made.Projected situation for 2019 draftAssuming the OverTheCap estimate above is correct, the Redskins should have 9 picks remaining in the 2019 draft, as well as two players currently on the roster as a result of using some of the team’s 2019 draft capital.Here’s a summary of the nine picks that the Redskins are expected to have in the coming draft:1st round - ‘regular’ pick2nd round - ‘regular’ pick3rd round - ‘regular’ pick3rd round - ‘comp’ pick4th round - Ha Ha Clinton-Dix acquired in trade from GB Packers5th round - ‘regular’ pick5th round - ‘comp’ pick6th round - Adonis Alexander selected in the 2018 Supplemental Draft6th round - ‘comp’ pick7th round - ‘regular’ pick7th round - ‘comp’ pickRelated Articles:Redskins add Virginia Tech DB Adonis Alexander in NFL Supplemental DraftGrading the Adonis Alexander pick for the Washington RedskinsVirginia Tech football: Adonis Alexander selected by the Redskins in the NFL Supplemental DraftPhoto by Dylan Buell/Getty ImagesBreaking down the Packers’ trade of S Ha Ha Clinton-DixPackers trade safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to RedskinsNFL fans react to Packers trading Ha Ha Clinton-Dix You've gotta hand it to Washington's alleged NFL team.There's the offensive nickname. Not to mention claiming a player off waivers not long after he allegedly beat up a woman 鈥?again. And let's not forget the organization's unwillingness to pursue a legitimate quarterback 鈥?yes, there's at least one out there 鈥?with the playoffs on the line. Oh, and while we're at it, quietly trying to push through a plan for a new stadium that would undoubtedly serve as another raid on the public coffers.Let's go ahead and give this bunch a new moniker: the worst franchise in sports.Washington's NFL team has some stiff competition, of course. There are horribly run franchises all over the sporting landscape.Even within its own league, it's hard to dismiss the not-long-for-Oakland Raiders, who had the gall to announce they were bolting for a financial windfall in Las Vegas a full three seasons before they actually planned to skip town, smugly counting on the good people of Oaktown being nothing more than silver-and-black-clad suckers willing to support a lame-duck franchise. Now Womens Dustin Hopkins Jersey , it looks like the team might be homeless in 2019 after Oakland officials filed a lawsuit to recover some of the tens of millions of dollars they've invested in the team and its current stadium.The Raiders deserve to be banished to a season of aimless wandering after turning their backs on Oakland for the second time, trading away two of their best players, and handing the keys to the franchise to broadcaster-masquerading-as-coach Jon Gruden, who has guided them to three wins in his first 13 games.But we'll still go with the Washingtonians as the ones most faithfully following the path of Be Worst.A brief recap:鈥?Reuben Foster, a troubled young man arrested not once but twice this year on suspicion of domestic violence, was claimed off waivers by Washington shortly after being released by the San Francisco 49ers. While we have little faith that any NFL team really cares all that much about dealing with this scourge on society 鈥?see: Kareem Hunt and countless others who've had similar brushes with the law 鈥?Washington turned the cynicism meter up to full blast before ripping off the knob.鈥?While giving Foster what amounts to a fourth chance (he's also got a marijuana arrest on his rap sheet), Washington wouldn't dare consider giving even a second look to a quarterback who had the gall to kneel during the national anthem as a protest against racial injustice. Again, Dan Snyder & Co. are hardly alone in the two-years long blackballing of Colin Kaepernick 鈥?see: 31 other NFL teams 鈥?but the hypocrisy really stands out in the nation's capital.After all, this team was in the hunt for the playoffs when it lost starting QB Alex Smith to a gruesome leg injury and backup Colt McCoy to a broken fibula. Last week, Washington trotted out the carcass of Mark Sanchez, whose last glimmer of relevance came toward the end of Barack Obama's first term. A 46-10 loss to the woeful New York Giants (who could've seen that coming, except everyone?) led Washington to make another change for what could be their last shot at making the postseason.Exit Sanchez Womens Mason Foster Jersey , enter Josh Johnson, who has twice as many NFL e mployers (this is his 12th team) as career starts (Sunday's game at lowly Jacksonville will be his sixth, and first since 2011). Johnson gave Washington fans plenty of reason for hope when he declared "just a week ago, I was at home in the hood, chillin' with the kids, chillin' with my family and thinking on the couch that I might never play in the NFL again." Also, he prepped for his new gig by playing the "Madden" video game . Washington would probably be better off just playing the game's namesake, 82-year-old John Madden, at QB.鈥?While Snyder's horrific reign as owner 鈥?see: only five playoff appearances since buying the storied franchise in 1999, dwindling attendance at the FedEx Mausoleum, the RG3 fiasco, the embarrassing reign of coach Mike Shanahan Womens Morgan Moses Jersey , and so many other missteps that a full documenting would require transforming this column into book-form 鈥?he's keeping up the push for a new stadium that, like so many others landed by his socialist-loving brethren, would surely require the taxpayers to turn over a hefty chunk of what occupies their wallets.The Washington Post reported last week that Snyder is working with the outgoing Congress and the Trump administration to pull off an underhanded maneuver: getting a provision in a new spending bill that would allow him to build on the site of team's former District home, RFK Stadium. A very Snyder-like move, indeed.鈥?Finally, let's never forget that awful nickname, the one that Snyder steadfastly refuses to walk away from and won't be typed out on this keyboard. I checked again with Merriam Webster. Yep, that word is still "very offensive and should be avoided."Much like Washington's NFL team.The worst franchise in sports.__Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.
