NFL Draft 2012: West Virginia Cornerback Keith Tandy Holds Private Workout With Redskins

The Washington Redskins have other picks besides the No. 2 overall draft pick in this month's NFL Draft. The Redskins want to be sure that they pick the right players to help fill needs and provide depth at positions such as defensive back in the later rounds. According to a tweet by Aaron Wilson, West Virginia cornerback Keith Tandy held a private workout with the Redskins recently.

The Redskins did sign Brandon Meriweather to a deal this off season, but providing for more secondary depth would be a good thing for the Redskins to do.

Tandy is 5'10" and 199 pounds and just finished up his senior season with four interceptions.The Redskins could use him to provide more depth in the secondary particularly in the nickel and dime packages.

2012 NFL Draft: Andrew Luck Leaves Indianapolis To Meet With Washington

The Washington redskins have the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, and the widely regarded opinion is that they will select Baylor quarterback and Heisman quarterback Robert Griffin III. The Colts have the top pick and are expected to pick Andrew Luck, but that doesn't mean that the Redskins won't do their homework on the former Stanford quarterback. According to Adam Schefter, Luck will be on his way to Washington on Tuesday to met with the Redskins.

While everyone who has ever had an opinion about the draft expects the Colts to go with Andrew Luck, the gap between him and Griffin III isn't enormous and the Colts could surprise everybody and pick RG3. So the Redskins need to do some homework on Luck just in case he is in Washington as a Redskins later this Summer. But we still shouldn't expect it to happen.

2012 NFL Mock Draft: How Far How Fast For Robert Griffin III?

Mock drafts leave little to be desired for the Washington Redskins. Every since the team pulled off a blockbuster trade with the St. Louis Rams to get the second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, it has been preordained that they would select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. The team seems to be confident in that decision, already sending the coaching staff to Texas to meet with their quarterback of the future.

The latest mock draft from SB Nation continues the conventional wisdom.

RG3, on the other hand, needs no help finding cameras. The draft is just a formality for these two picks. Mike Shanahan et al are already meeting with Griffin in Texas. How they find time between Griffin's appearances I don't know.

At this point the biggest question for the Redskins is how much Griffin will be able to contribute this season. Obviously they intend for Griffin to start, but how far can he go in year one?

2012 NFL Draft: Kyle Shanahan To Visit Robert Griffin III In Texas

At this point in the pre-draft process, it has become the general assumption that Robert Griffin III will be the pick of the Washington Redskins at No. 2 overall. There have been a lot of things to come out of the woodwork recently that support that notion, and perhaps none as confidence-inspiring as the latest bit of news. According to CSN Washington, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan will be flying down to Waco a few times a week leading up to the Draft to meet with Griffin.

The fact that Shanahan is spending time with Griffin indicates the level of confidence that the Redskins organization has that the Colts are going to take Andrew Luck with the first overall pick. Jim Irsay’s public Hamlet routine notwithstanding, if they believe that there was any chance that Indianapolis would pull a shocker and draft RG3, they would not be spending Kyle’s time and the resources to teach the offense to a possible future Colt.

CSN Washington's Chick Hernandez has since tweeted that the Redskins also plan to meet with Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, despite the fact that Luck will likely be selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the first overall pick. If the Redskins can get RGIII associated with the playbook before he is the actual draft pick later this month, it could be very good for his assimilation to their offense and life in the NFL.

NFL Mock Draft 2012: Mel Kiper Has Robert Griffin III To Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins are fully believed to be taking Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III in the 2012 NFL Draft, especially after trading up to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper gives the Redskins the Heisman winning quarterback to the Redskins in Kiper's latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft.

2 - Washington Redskins - Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

Last time I did a mock, the Redskins moved into this slot a day later. It wasn't an unexpected move, it was just a matter of which team was going to do it. Obviously, the Redskins see RG3 as a long-term answer, and I agree with the assessment that he can be an NFL starter in Week 1. Again, no surprises here.

While Kiper did a two-round mock draft, the Redskins obviously don't have a second round pick in this year's NFL Draft, but the team loaded up on players in free agency in preparation for the lack of draft picks.

NFL Mock Draft 2012: Robert Griffin III Still Projected To Be Drafted By Redskins

The mock drafts keep coming at a quick pace. Don Banks has just published his latest mock draft on SI.com and in that mock draft and he still has the Redskins picking the Baylor quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick.

I was watching Jon Gruden's QB Camp show on ESPN the other day, and saw where the Scowler asked RG3 what the story was with his colorful socks. Really? Talk about old news. Is there anyone in America at this point who doesn't know about Griffin's sock collection?

The crazy sock collection that Griffin has may be fun to look at, but does it really matter what socks he wears as long as he is everything that the Redskins hope that he is? If Griffin can step in right away to Mike Shanahan's system, he could wear whatever the heck kind of socks he wants. It'll just be an interesting quirk to the young man.

NFL Draft 2012: Robert Griffin III Won't Work Out For Indianapolis Colts Or Washington Redskins

The latest minor news story to come out of the NFL Draft came when Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted the following.

Cue massive amounts of scrutinizing and tea leaf-reading. Surely this was a sign that Robert Griffin III was committed to playing with the Washington Redskins and for his idol Mike Shanahan. And then ESPN's Adam Schefter came along and explained that it really doesn't mean very much at all.

And, just for the record ...

This is all perfectly understandable, since the final decision does not belong to the Redskins. They'll take whichever quarterback the Colts don't, and everyone in D.C. will be happier for it (though, one senses) slightly disappointed if it does turn out to be Luck.

NFL Mock Draft 2012: Redskins Projected To Draft Robert Griffin III

With pro day season behind them, the Washington Redskins now are moving forward with their preparations for the 2012 NFL Draft. The Redskins are still projected to draft Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III with the No. 2 overall draft pick in the latest SBNation mock draft.

Washington was smart to make this move, getting a franchise quarterback. Mike Shanahan's team also opened the wallet to add receivers Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan to give their new quarterback some targets, making his transition to the NFL that much easier. The Redskins have high hopes for their rookie quarterback in year one.

Its no surprise that the Redskins used their free cap space to sign veteran wide receivers. Drafting receivers is always a tricky proposition, so bringing in guys like Garcon and Morgan who have NFL experience should help in Griffin's adjustment to the NFL.

2012 NFL Draft Rumors: Mike Shanahan Would Be Willing To Start Rookie QB, According To Report

At this point in the process, it seems almost a certainty that the Redskins will take Robert Griffin III of Baylor will end up in Washington with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The question that comes next is if he will start from the beginning, or if Mike Shanahan will let him learn behind Rex Grossman for a while. According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, Shanahan is open to playing a rookie from the very beginning.

"You put him in there when you feel like he's ready to go," Shanahan told The Washington Post at this week's NFL Annual Meeting. "... When you make a move to the second pick in the draft, you've got to feel comfortable with both guys.

"You get someone you feel like can be a franchise quarterback for years to come -- that doesn't happen very often. They're hard to find."

Now of course that doesn't mean that will be the plan, but it is noteworthy to know that Shanahan is at least open to the possibility.

2012 NFL Draft: Mike Shanahan Would Be Satisfied With Either Andrew Luck Or Robert Griffin III

When the Washington Redskins traded up to get the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft with the St. Louis Rams, it was assumed that they were making that move for Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. That still seems like the plan, but what if the Colts decide they want RGIII with their first overall pick? Well then the Redskins would be stuck with Andrew Luck, and it sounds like Mike Shanahan is just fine with that.

That's the draw of trading up to the No. 2 overall pick in a draft with two elite prospects. All the pressure is on the team with the top overall pick to get the right guy, but the Redskins will just be satisfied with whoever falls to them, and still end up with an elite prospect.

2012 NFL Draft Order: Official Order Of Picks Released, Redskins Have Seven Picks

The NFL has released the official order of draft picks for the upcoming NFL Draft, in which the Redskins will have seven picks. You can find the master list of picks at SB Nation, but here is a run down of the picks belonging to the Redskins. Keep in mind that this is only the order that the Draft will start off with, as draft day trades could still shake things up a considerable amount.

The trade with the St. Louis Rams left the Redskins with just one pick in the first two rounds, but of course, that is the second overall pick where they are projected to take either Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III.

Their next pick is the sixth in the third round, 69th overall.

They will have two picks in the fourth round as a result of the Jason Campbell trade. Their own is at 102nd overall and the pick they acquire from the Raiders is just seven picks later at 109th overall.

They have the sixth overall again in the fifth round at 141st overall.

They had to give up a sixth round pick to get Tim Hightower from the Cardinals, but they still have a pick belonging originally to the Vikings in that round, 173rd overall.

Finally, they have just one pick in the 7th round, their own at 213th overall.

2012 NFL Draft: Washington Redskins Receive No Compensatory Draft Picks

The NFL handed out 32 compensatory picks for the 2012 NFL Draft on Monday. A total of 15 teams received picks, and the Washington Redskins were not among those teams, according to a press release from the league.

Compensatory picks are awarded to teams losing "more or better" free agents than they signed in the previous year. Teams can receive a maximum of four compensatory picks. To determine compensatory picks, the league uses a formula that takes into account salary, playing time and a postseason appearances.

The league started awarding compensatory draft picks in 1994. Since that time, the Redskins have received 12.

The 2012 NFL Draft takes place over the course of three days, beginning with the first round on Thursday, April 26.

2012 NFL Draft Rumors: Colts Undecided On Andrew Luck Over Robert Griffin

Since the last whistle of the 2011 NFL season, it has been seemingly preordained that the Indianapolis Colts would draft Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Colts owner Jim Irsay cast a shadow of doubt on that assumption in at Monday's NFL owners meeting in Florida, according to ESPN.

Here is Irsay's statement as reported by Dan Graziano:

"I think they're both outstanding young men," Irsay said during a break in the owners meetings here Monday. "I don't think it's either-or, where only one of them is going to succeed. I think they're both going to be great."

Since they have the No. 1 pick, the Colts could, if they so choose, do a contract with Luck (or Griffin, or any player they want, actually) in advance of the draft.

"If we decided to do a deal early with one of them, that's something we could definitely look into," Irsay said. "But we're still in the evaluation process right now.

Both the Colts and the Redskins will end up with some combination of Griffin or Luck. Neither team would be likely to complain about either player.

NFL Draft 2012 Rumors: Redskins, Rams Agree On Trade For No. 2 Overall Pick, According To Report

The Washington Redskins have agreed to a trade with the St. Louis Rams for the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, according to a report from Fox's Jay Glazer. The Skins will be giving up three first round picks, according to Glazer, who tweeted the scoop late Friday night.

Via @JayGlazer:

"Major scoopage: Redskins have agreed to a trade w Rams for #2 pick of draft. Rams and Skins swap first rounders this yr w Rams also getting 2 future #1s and additional picks. Story coming on fox sports dot com"

The Skins were one of a handful of teams bidding for the No. 2 pick, which will almost certainly be used to draft Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.

Adam Schefter supplemented Glazer's report, adding that a second round pick is also part of the deal.

Via @AdamSchefer:

UPDATE: Just a little bit of bookkeeping from ESPN.

The trade, first reported by FoxSports.com, cannot be signed off on, turned in and processed until the new league year starts Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST, but it is expected to become official then.

2012 NFL Draft: Redskins Not Willing To Give Up Second-Round Pick For Robert Griffin III?

The Washington Redskins are believed to be one of the teams who will be in play to move up for Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III in the 2012 NFL Draft. As it stands, the Redskins are believed to be the frontrunners to trade up with the St. Louis Rams to acquire the second overall pick to select Griffin. In the report however, there appears to still be a big sticking point with what the Redskins are willing to part with in order to get Griffin.

• Washington (No. 6): The Redskins appear willing to trade their first-round pick next year, as well as their No. 6 overall pick this year. But they aren't willing to include their second-rounder this year, which isn't acceptable to the Rams.

It appears the Redskins are stuck in not wanting to give up the first two rounds of their draft plus next year's first-round pick. That is the cost of a potential franchise quarterback when you're trying to get to the No. 2 overall pick, however. Especially where there are 2-3 other teams who could be in the running as well.

NFL Draft 2012 Rumors: Redskins Willing To Deal Two First Rounders For Robert Griffin III, According To Report

The Washington Redskins have been linked for what seems like forever with possibly drafting Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. Now it seems like there is at least a possible price for what the Redskins may pay if they indeed trade up for the No. 2 overall pick now that the St. Louis Rams are committed to trading the pick according to a report from Washington Post Redskins insider Mike Jones.

The Washington Redskins are prepared to part with two first-round draft picks, plus other selections in the early and middle rounds, to secure the St. Louis Rams' No. 2 pick in April's draft and land Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to people with knowledge of the situation.

The payment for trading up to the No. 2 overall draft pick is said to be similar compensation to what the New York Giants paid to the San Diego Chargers to draft Eli Manning in 2004. While Robert Griffin III is a popular choice, the question needs to be asked whether or not the Redskins, with other needs on the offensive line, secondary and wide receiver positions, would be giving up too much to draft Griffin.

2012 NFL Draft Rumors: When The Rams Can Trade The No. 2 Overall Pick

The St. Louis Rams have the second overall pick in the first round, and that is where pretty much everyone projects Robert Griffin III to be selected. The Redskins will certainly have some interest in trading up from their sixth overall pick to the second to take Griffin. As SI's Peter King, via SB Nation St. Louis, points out, there are three time periods when the Rams could trade that pick.

The first period, though King calls this one "the most unlikely," is before free agency opens on March 13, as King reasons that a team may try and blow the Rams away after Griffin's combine performance but before he can drive the price up even further at his Pro Day. The second major period when the Rams may look to deal the pick would be at the NFL's league meetings that take place from March 24-28, which would come after Griffin's Pro Day and will feature all of the league's decision makers in one spot. The third would be in the days or hours leading up to the draft on April 26, which is traditionally when deals of this nature are pulled off.

I'm sure most Redskins fans would love to get this one over with before free agency starts, but that typically isn't the way these deals are done. I would expect it to take place while the Rams are on the clock during the first round, and not a minute sooner.

2012 NFL Draft Rumors: St. Louis Rams Will Trade Second Pick, According To Adam Schefter

The St. Louis Rams hold one of the most valuable pieces of real estate in the 2012 NFL Draft. Their woeful 2-14 performance earned them the second pick in the draft, a spot now coveted because of the emergence of Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III as a franchise cornerstone. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Rams will indeed trade that pick.

Schefter’s report is a bit vague. He says that the Rams will trade the pick, but it is not clear whether the team has actually agreed to a deal or not.

Many expect the Rams to trade the pick, given the owner-friendly rookie salary scale for draft picks and Griffin’s sky-high potential. Peter King at Sports Illustrated covered the subject on Monday, making a similar prediction to Schefter’s.

As for the cost of the pick, it will be high, perhaps as many as five draft picks. Schefter notes the cost paid by the Chargers to move up in the 1999 NFL Draft and take Ryan Leaf (whoops). San Diego moved up just one spot that year.

The Washington Redskins are believed to be one of several teams with a keen interest in making a deal for Griffin. A report on Friday from Tony Pauline at SI.com says the two teams have already had discussions about a trade.

NFL Combine 2012: Robert Griffin III Calls Meeting With Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan 'Awesome'

Rumors and speculation began swirling on Friday that the Washington Redskins would meet with Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III this weekend. RG3 lit up Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday during his workout, running a blistering 4.38 in the 40-yard dash. While he's already projected as a lock in the top five, his stock continues to rise this weekend in Indy.

Griffin III confirmed his visit with the Skins when he was on the NFL Network's set with Rich Eisen.

Via Rich Tandler:

While discussing Griffin's team visits during an appearance on the NFL Network, host Rich Eisen said to Griffin, "At least Shanahan has spoken to you."

RG3 responded, "I did speak with Mr. Shanahan. It was awesome."

2012 NFL Combine: Sunday Schedule And Preview

Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine is traditionally a marquee day. The list of potential draftees being poked, prodded and judged lightens a bit, as the kickers, punters, tight ends and offensive lineman exit Indianapolis, with the "star" positions taking their place in the workout spotlight: the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers. In other words, Sunday at the 2012 NFL Combine is going to be an exciting day for Washington Redskins fans, as the team has obvious needs at two of those three skill positions.

While the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers show off their speed and strength in skills drills, defensive lineman and linebackers will be undergoing psychological tests and having interviews with teams. Defensive backs, the last group to arrive in Indianapolis, will be having their measurements taken and undergoing medical exams.

The Redskins brass will most definitely be keeping an eye out today for possible quarterbacks and wide receivers to add depth to the roster. Today is the day annually when some wide outs and running backs break stopwatches, while others will appear to be running in cement shoes, dropping their stock in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft. Should be fun times.

The entire NFL Scouting Combine schedule may be found here. The NFL Network will broadcast drills beginning at 9:00 a.m. and also stream the workouts online.

NFL Draft 2012 Rumors: Brock Osweiler Met With Redskins

The Washington Redskins hold a top pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and while they might not necessarily take a quarterback with their first round pick, it's possible they could take one with one of their second or third round picks. One player who might for in that range for the Redskins is Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler, who has reportedly already met with the Redskins.

Osweiler is a giant quarterback, measuring in at just under 6'7" and 242 pounds. Osweiler will not throw at the NFL Combine however, as he reportedly has a foor sprain. He will throw at his Pro Day, however. Osweiler ended his final season at Arizona State throwing for over 4,000 yards with 26 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions, opting to leave after just one season starting for the Sun Devils.

NFL Draft 2012 Rumors: Rams And Redskins Have Discussed Second Pick, According To Report

As the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine continues to take place over the weekend, teams are not only taking this opportunity to evaluate potential draftees, but also to meet with one another about possible draft trades, and yes Redskins fans, another outlet is reporting the St. Louis Rams have had at least preliminary discussions with the Washington Redskins regarding the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. That pick presumably would be used on Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Via Tony Pauline of TFY DraftInsider.net:

The word in Indianapolis is the St Louis Rams will do everything possible to move the second pick of the draft. We hear there have been exploratory talks with the Washington Redskins in the early going.

The Redskins desperately seek an upgrade at quarterback for next season, and Griffin would certainly be one. The Cleveland Browns are the other team reported to be hot to trade up to No. 2, and they currently have better trading chips to offer in terms of draft picks than the Redskins, so only time will tell how this all shakes out.

NFL Draft 2012 Rumors: Redskins Will Talk To Robert Griffin III On Saturday

The Redskins continue to talk to prospects at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine. The real question was when they were going to get a chance to talk to Baylor's Robert Griffin III, the best quarterback in the draft after Stanford's Andrew Luck. We have word on when he will meet with Redskins personnel in Indianapolis.

The interview could go a long way into seeing whether or not the Redskins would be willing to trade up to pick Griffin or if they may want to trade down and stock some more draft picks to draft someone later in the first round. With increased interest in Ryan Tannehill of Texas A&M and Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State, the news from this interview will be interesting to hear about.

NFL Draft 2012 Rumors: Redskins Have Talked To Ryan Broyles

The list of wide receivers that the Redskins are interested in seem to be increasing with the news that they have talked to Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles at the NFL Scouting Combine according to Free-Lance Star sports writer Zac Boyer.

Broyles has been working hard at rehabilitating his knee so that he could participate in Oklahoma's pro day in April, though the wisdom is that he will be full strength in May. One would hope that this knee problem will not linger like it has with Malcom Kelly, another Oklahoma wide receiver.

Before his injury, Broyles caught 83 passes for 1157 yards and 10 touchdowns in his senior season.

2012 NFL Draft Rumors: Redskins Talk To Stephen Hill At Combine

While the Redskins are still one of the teams rumored to be looking into trading up to draft Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Redskins appear to be doing their due diligence when it comes to scouting by talking with Georgia Tech Wide Receiver Stephen Hill at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Stephen Hill is an interesting prospect for the Redskins as he certainly provides a good amount of size at 6'5" and has a good deal of speed at a position that the Redskins do need help with. The question is would the Redskins really want to reach with the No. 6 pick or would they trade back in order to pick him.

NFL Draft 2012 Rumors: Redskins Talk To Mike Adams At Combine

The Washington Redskins are one of the teams that is rumored to trade up in the Draft in an effort to take Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, but there is a very large chance that trade doesn't work out and they will have to find something else to do with their first round pick. One option is to trade back, and according to Mocking The Draft, they are already talking to prospects that could be available if they go that route.

Ohio State left tackle Mike Adams told reporters at the NFL Combine the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins have talked to him about moving to right tackle in the NFL. Adams is expected to be a mid-first-round pick, so both teams may just be kicking the tires in the event of a trade back. The Browns may also target Adams with the 22nd pick in the first round.

They could also be hoping that Adams is still on the board when their second round pick rolls around but that seems unlikely based on the discussions about Adams recently and his performance at the combine.
