For those who don’t know, unofficially, the Washington Redskins have acquired the number two pick in next month’s NFL Draft. In exchange, the Redskins gave the St. Louis Rams the sixth selection of the first round, a second round pick for the draft as well as first round selections for the drafts in 2013 and 2014. The trade will not be made official until the start of the league year, this Tuesday.
I know we view Robert Griffin III as a “can’t miss” prospect and should be very good, if not phenomenal. Very good quarterbacks are hard to come by and if he can ball, the team is set for the next ten to twelve years. Let’s be real here though, the Redskins are known for fucking up and it all starts with their owner, Daniel Snyder. You’re giving away four premium picks just to move up four spots in the draft??? I know a franchise quarterback is hard to come by, but he can’t do it all by himself, with no supporting cast. At least, no premium supporting cast.
They better hope this kid can step in right away and turn water into wine because if he falters, there’s only one head to call for, and that is the one Snyder’s neck!!!
