2012 NFL Mock Draft: Robert Griffin III To The Browns

Drafting the Baylor star could signal the end of the Colt McCoy era in Cleveland.

In the latest 2012 mock draft from SBNation, Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III is projected to go No. 4 to the Cleveland Browns, a move that would seemingly end former Texas great Colt McCoy's tenure as their QB of the future:
At this point, I would more shocked if Cleveland kept Colt McCoy than if they traded up in the draft to secure RG3. Washington and Miami (and maybe others), will be circling RG3, so trading up is the only sure way they can nab him. They need some talent to pair with him, but this is a big upgrade for Cleveland.

If the Colts take Andrew Luck No. 1, the next likely landing spot for Griffin is at No. 4, as the two teams in between -- the St. Louis Rams and the Minnesota Vikings -- have comitted to first-round QB's in the last two years in Sam Bradford and Christian Ponder.

However, there is a chance that a QB-hungry team like the Washington Redskings, sitting at No. 6, could try to jump ahead of Cleveland in an effort to land the Baylor star.
