Adam Schefter has recently reported that the Washington Redskins have traded up in the 2012 NFL draft, with none other than the St. Louis Rams. This is what Schefter had to say on Twitter Friday night:

Washington Redskins traded three first-round draft picks and a second-round pick to St. Louis for second overall pick in a trade first reported by @JayGlazer

Although an agreement is in place between the two teams, the trade can not be processed until Tuesday, which is when the offcial leauge year begins . The Redskins were unsuccessful in the pursuit of free agent Peyton Manning, and immediately turned their attention to Robert Griffin III. The Baylor standout and Heisman trophy winner is expected to be chosen by the Redskins in the upcoming draft.
