Got to give Mike Shanahan at least a little credit for attempting to make a little bit of drama with the No. 2 overall draft pick. During his press conference at Redskins Park Wednesday he said that the chances of the Washington Redskins drafting Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III are overwhelming, but not a certainty.
Mike Shanahan calls it 99.9 percent that Robert Griffin III is Redskins' pick at No. 2. "Nothing is 100 percent," he said.— Redskins (@Redskins) April 25, 2012
Shanahan is obviously doing a little press gamesmenship here a little more than 24 hours away from the NFL Draft. If the Redskins draft anyone else but Griffin or Stanford Cardinal quarterback Andrew Luck, whom the Indianapolis Colts have confirmed they are drafting with the No. 1 pick, fans and the media in Washington will be asking for his job rapidly.
