The NFL pushed back the draft two weeks but it didn't push back anything else. The Redskins have a plan to deal with the shortened offseason for rookies. 

The rookie minicamp that concluded yesterday at Redskins Park usually takes place on the first weekend in May. So the camp moved back two weeks but the rest of the schedule remained the same. Training camp still will start the last week in July. The season opens the week after Labor Day weekend. That gives rookies two fewer weeks to get up to speed.
