2012 NFL Mock Draft: Redskins Favorites To Trade Up For Robert Griffin III

The Washington Redskins have a pretty large hole in the roster at the quarterback position, and filling it will probably be the first choice in the Draft.

The folks over at Mocking The Draft no doubt kept that in mind in this week's mock, when they predicted that the Redskins would trade up to draft former Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.

Once again it appears that the Redskins are the presumptive favorites to trade up in the draft. Unless, of course, they sign Peyton Manning, Matt Flynn or one of the other quarterback moves that would inject a little life into this franchise. Griffin is not on the same level as Luck; however, he is blessed with the arm, accuracy, athleticism and know-how teams desire in a franchise cornerstone.
