When the Washington Redskins traded up for the second overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, it was with the assumption that they would take Baylor's Robert Griffin III with that pick. And while Griffin has already showed NFL talent evaluators everything he needs to be the second overall pick, he will still take part in Baylor's Pro Day on Wednesday. Here is some viewing information.

He already has the 40 time from the Combine (he won't run on Wednesday) and the accuracy from his Heisman winning season to show scouts, so Griffin will try to showcase some NFL ready skills that he wasn't able to show in College, according to David Ubben of ESPN.
"The routes are all different in different systems, but they give you that generic NFL route tree and they want you to go run that and show them, 'Hey, I can run the basics, now teach me everything else,'" Griffin said. "So, just matching the drops to those throws, because they’re not what anybody does in the college level, no matter whether they’re in a pro system or in a spread system."
Of course, it isn't a 100% certainty that the Redskins will wind up with Griffin. They could end up with Andrew Luck if the Colts get squirrely with the top overall pick. But at this point that seems to be the case, and this Pro Day will be the first time Redskins fans can see Griffin when they know he is likely to be a member of their team.
