Hours after declaring they wouldn't trade their ninth overall selection in Saturday's NFL draft, the Washington Redskins acquired another first-round spot, the 25th overall, from Denver on Tuesday.

The Broncos received the Redskins' third-round choice (76th overall) this year, plus Washington's first-rounder and fourth-rounder in 2006.

The trade should enable the Redskins to address dire needs at cornerback and wide receiver, both strong positions in this draft.

The Oakland Raiders, meanwhile, traded disgruntled cornerback Phillip Buchanon to the Houston Texans for two draft picks, a second- and third-rounder, a source told the Associated Press.
