2012 NFL Draft: Redskins Not Willing To Give Up Second-Round Pick For Robert Griffin III?

The Washington Redskins are believed to be one of the teams who will be in play to move up for Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III in the 2012 NFL Draft. As it stands, the Redskins are believed to be the frontrunners to trade up with the St. Louis Rams to acquire the second overall pick to select Griffin. In the report however, there appears to still be a big sticking point with what the Redskins are willing to part with in order to get Griffin.

• Washington (No. 6): The Redskins appear willing to trade their first-round pick next year, as well as their No. 6 overall pick this year. But they aren't willing to include their second-rounder this year, which isn't acceptable to the Rams.

It appears the Redskins are stuck in not wanting to give up the first two rounds of their draft plus next year's first-round pick. That is the cost of a potential franchise quarterback when you're trying to get to the No. 2 overall pick, however. Especially where there are 2-3 other teams who could be in the running as well.
