The Washington Redskins acquired the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft from the St. Louis Rams late Friday evening, with the intent of drafting Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III in that number two slot. It appears it is not just the Redskins who are enamored with Griffin - the quarterback is also a big fan of head coach Mike Shanahan.

Draft day, and the selection of an elite quarterback, cannot get here soon enough for long-suffering Redskins fans.
