After Robert Griffin III had one of the best combines by a QB in recent history, the demand for St. Louis’ number two pick in the NFL draft sky-rocketed. Griffin ran an astonishing 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash Sunday at the event, the third fastest time by a QB since 2000.
Radio host Howard Eskin of NBC Philidelphia, reported on Twitter that the Redskins had a great interview with RG3 at the combine, and are poised to make a “game-changing” decision. This is what Eskin put on his Twitter account:
I’m told by people within Redskins they are prepared to offer picks 1, 2 and 3 this year, at least a 1 next year to move up to get RG3 at 2
This has been my main reason as why to sign Peyton Manning, instead of “trading the house” for Griffin III. Those 3 extra picks Washington would be sacraficing could easily fill some of their other needs such as OL, WR, CB, and potentially Saftey.
CBS analyst Pat Kirwan also put in his input, but with USA Today:
“They have to do something. “They have (Tony) Romo, Eli (Manning) and Michael (Vick) in their division. They’re so far out of it, they can’t ever win, the way they are now at quarterback.”
Obviously, getting a QB is a must for the Redskins, and it will happen. It’s a matter of what the ‘Skins are looking for, and what they’re willing to sacrifice. We should all get an idea of what direction Washington is headed on March 8, the Manning pay-day deadline.
