Thursday evening, the Washington Redskins drafted a player many hope will be the team's first franchise quarterback in over two decades, Baylor's Robert Griffin III. Redskins faithful have been gaga over RGIII since the team traded up to obtain the No. 2 pick in this year's draft, and Griffin's performance both on and off the field pre-draft had Redskins fans foaming at the mouth to select the dynamic QB. Tweets like this from Griffin will have Washington fans ready to run through walls for their new signal caller:
