ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is talking a whole lot more about trading down than about trading up.

The Redskins have the No. 10 overall selection in the NFL draft that starts Thursday and have lots of holes to fill. That makes it a believable proposition that Shanahan will want to move down to acquire more picks.

Even if he wanted to move up, the coach wouldn't have much to offer because his team doesn't have any selections between Rounds 2 and 5.

Still, Shanahan didn't rule out anything, other than to say he probably won't be taking a tight end or a safety in the first two rounds.
