There's a flurry of trade activity leading up to the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft and the Redskins' top priority is trading Trent Williams.

It would be ideal to move the long disgruntled left tackle before the Redskins submit their card – virtually – for the second overall selection. And, according to 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen, their ask isn't too high, and hasn't been for some time.

"I have a hunch it'll be today, but because this thing's dragged on so long, I can't say that with conviction," Paulsen said Thursday morning.

"The Redskins want a second-round pick," he said. "That is what I was told that they wanted. That's what everyone's been saying for awhile. They haven't thought for, I would say several weeks, that they're gonna be able to get a two. But that's what they've been holding out for. The hope was as they got closer to, right up against the draft, that maybe it would happen."

As for whether that's realistic, Paulsen believes the Redskins will ultimately settle for something of lesser value.

"I think eventually they take two picks that equal up to kind of a second (round pick), as far as the Jimmy Johnson draft board and the points," he said. "Maybe it's a three and a five, or maybe it's a couple fours. Whatever they can get that's multiple picks, and it might be over two years, that gets as close to a second-round pick as possible."
