SPEAK OUT: Did the 'Skins Give up Too Much to Move Up?
Tell Us: Should the 'Skins draft a franchise quarterback or fill another need?
The NFL Draft has finally arrived and the Washington Redskins are sitting in the No. 2 spot in the first round.
ESPN projects the 'Skins will select Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin, III. If RG3 comes to Washington, it will be the first time the Redskins have drafted a quarterback in the first round since Jason Campbell in 2005. Griffin threw for more than 4,000 yards and rushed for almost 700-yards last season while reaching the end zone 47 times.
The last time the Redskins drafted a Heisman Trophy winner was 20-years ago when Desmond Howard joined the team, according to the Washington Times.
But to move up in the 2012 NFL Draft, the 'Skins gave up a king’s ransom. To move into the St. Louis Rams’ spot, the Washington Times reported the 'Skins traded their first and second-round selections this year and their first-rounders in 2013 and 2014, to the St. Louis Rams for the second overall pick.
