Although the fan and media conversation about the NFL draft focuses on needs for the coming season, the draft is more about the long-term future than the short-term outlook.

After months of speculation, the Washington Redskins will learn their 2013 schedule on Thursday night. This news came via NFL public relations guru Greg Aiello.
The Redskins have seven picks in the draft as of right now. They may end up using them as they are but they could also elect to move up to make sure that they get a player whom they have targeted.
