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.
