The Washington Redskins will be moving up in the draft thanks to a trade they have made with the St. Louis Rams. Did the Redskins make a wise move? They did it in the hopes of drafting Robert Griffin III. Washington will give up its first- and second-round selections this year, plus first-round picks in 2013 and 2014 in the trade. This does seem a lot for a player that has yet to play an NFL down for a team.
Robert Griffin III seems he has all the tools to be successful, but that is no guarantee. The Redskins have so many holes on their team I think he will struggle in Washington. The Redskins are giving up a lot to get him and this puts a lot of pressure on him to perform at a high level. My personal opinion is he is a talented player, but not a franchise quarterback. I could be wrong, but we will find out real soon. I think Washington would have been better off to go in a different direction, but we will have to see how it works out for them.
