Washington won the trade. They won it the second it was made because they got a crap ton of picks with good value to move down 7 spots. What they did with those picks is irrelevant when evaluating the trade.
At the time they traded picks, now we can use the benefit of hindsight to evaluate how the trade effecting each franchises futures. And I'd say that Washington won out, although it was close, trading Champ away for a RB was stupid and Arrington's lack of on-field discipline undermined his amazing talent, so it's actually closer than it was when the trade was made, at least IMO.
