At the moment, Roger Goodell is set to take the NFL Draft stage in Dallas, Texas and announce who the Redskins will be selecting with pick No. 13.

But how much of a chance is there that the team will make a trade in the first round? 

Team president Bruce Allen told NBC Sports Washington Redskins Insider JP Finlay that, as of now, the team feels very comfortable at 13.

"There's going to be a good football player," Allen said.

A run on passers, though, could give Washington a chance to change spots.

"Depending on where the quarterbacks start to go in this draft, there will be an opportunity to move around in this draft to make sure we get maybe extra picks."

Extra picks is every team's ideal outcome but to make that happen, trades have to be made.

"There's possibilities of everything,"Allen said when asked if that means trading up or down is in the cards.

But what will shape their decision come April 26 when prospects start being eliminated and a trade may be necessary?

"It will also be based on the board. If we see that we have a group of players with the same grade, that's what allows you the comfort of trading down a few picks. If we know they're gonna get one of the five players that have the same grade, you're able to trade back. So once again it will be incumbent on us to come up with a Redskin grade and then it makes the draft process very simple."

In the last 10 seasons, the Redskins have traded up or down in the first-round three times.

The team traded down in 2011 for Ryan Kerrigan, up in 2012 for you know who and down one spot in 2016 for Josh Doctson.

While Allen's answer left much to be interpreted, it's clear the organization is willing to make moves to get what is needed.
