2012 NFL Mock Draft: RG3 Is A Lock For Washington, But Where's Kendall Wright Going?

The very top of the 2012 NFL Draft has become crystal clear with the release of Peyton Manning by the Indianapolis Colts and the gargantuan trade made by the Washington Redskins to move up to St. Louis' No. 2 spot - Andrew Luck and Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III are going off the board in tandem, that much is certain.

Just to be thorough, the latest SB Nation mock draft does have RG3 as a 'Skin:

2. Washington Redskins (from St. Louis), Robert Griffin III, WR, Baylor

Help me understand the world of armchair general management. When news of this trade leaked out on Friday night, roughly 30 percent of the tweets I read about it complained that Washington gave up too much. Are you crazy? Teams without quarterbacks are like cars without engines. All the draft picks in the world cannot save a team forced to rely on runaways like Rex Grossman. Washington has a bright future with Griffin coming to town.

Now, the cloudier question for Baylor - where does wideout Kendall Wright end up? The Houston Texans have been considered certain to take a receiver, and the latest mock draft has Wright headed south from Waco, rather than the Texans taking Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill:

Wright's draft stock slipped after a couple disappointing 40 times. Still, you have to work really hard to make a case against him based on what he showed in college. Wright makes a nice complement to Andre Johnson as a slippery, explosive second option in the offense.

Baylor (and Houston Texans fans) should be on the lookout for what happens higher up the board with the Minnesota Vikings, their No. 3 overall pick, and the exploits of Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon, as well as Notre Dame's Michael Floyd, both predicted to go before Wright.
