In case you have been living under a rock the past 12 hours, the Washington Redskins made a deal with the St. Louis Rams late Friday night to secure the number two pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, presumably to draft uber talented Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. As you might imagine, news of that magnitude elicited plenty of reaction, and what better place to look for those reactions than Twitter.
Via the fine folks at Hogs Haven, here are a few select tweets regarding the move. I picked one tweet each from a Redskins player, the media, and Darnell Dockett, because, well, he's Darnell Dockett.
This next month is gonna be crazy! Free agency, the draft, and a big trade has already happened folks!— Adam Carriker (@BigPoppaPump94) March 10, 2012
Are three No. 1's & a No. 2 a ton to give up? Yes. And trading them for a potential franchise-changing presence at QB was the right move.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 10, 2012
