2012 NFL Mock Draft: Robert Griffin III Available For Redskins, Sort Of

The fellas at SB Nation just came out with the latest edition of their 2012 NFL Mock Draft, and it has a little bit of a tease in it for the Washington Redskins. They satisfy those fans that are dreaming of the Redskins landing a quarterback, particularly Robert Griffin III, with their first round pick; but they also admit that the possibility of Griffin actually making it to their pick at six is pretty slim.

Mock drafts in January are pretty implausible to begin with; mock drafts in which RG3 gets picked sixth are fantasy, pure fantasy. Of course, the very real possibility exists that Washington makes the move up for Griffin. Or they could also find a veteran free agent. Peyton Manning is already getting kicked around the rumor mill, and Matt Flynn could be an option as well. If they do that, look for Alabama CB Dre Kirkpatrick to be an option here.

Griffin will most likely be available to the highest bidder earlier in the Draft. It will be interesting to see if the Redskins are interested, and if so, how much they are willing to give up in a trade.
