Notes

  • Washington traded their fourth-round selection to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for safety Ha Ha Clinton Dix, and forfeited their sixth-round selection after selecting cornerback Adonis Alexander in the 2018 supplemental draft.
  • As the result of a negative differential of free agent signings and departures that Washington experienced during the 2018 free agency period, the team was projected to receive three compensatory selections for the 2019 draft. Exact numbers of the selections from rounds 4–7 is be determined when compensatory selections are awarded at the NFL's annual spring owners' meetings.[1]
  • Washington was awarded four compensatory picks including their second selections in rounds 3, 5 and 7 and their sole pick in round 6.[2]
  • Washington traded their second-round selection to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the 26th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft and a second round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.[3]
  • Washington traded their third-round compensatory selection (pick 96) to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for picks 112 and 131 in the 2019 NFL Draft.[4]
