NFL Draft 2012: Robert Griffin III Says Playing With Mike Shanahan Would Be 'Dream Come True'

Former Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III is drawing intense interest from NFL scouts and football fans alike following his stellar performances at the 2012 NFL Combine and the Baylor Pro Day. There are even renewed rumblings that the Heisman Trophy winner may even be selected No. 1 in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts, although most still believe he will be the No. 2 overall selection and head to the Washington Redskins.

For his part, Griffin seems to really enjoy the thought of heading to Washington. He appeared on SiriusXM radio on Tuesday and had nothing but good things to say about the Redskins and their head coach, Mike Shanahan. Here are his comments, courtesy of Samuel Chamberlain at SB Nation DC.

"So before I even talk about football with [the Redskins], I just try to express to them that I was a Broncos fan growing up, so Coach Shanahan coached those teams that I watched and that influenced me to play football. ... Would it be a dream come true to play for them? Yes it would ... But when it comes to just straight football talk, of course we can't talk about the offense and things like that, but they try to make a point to tell me the kind of things they're gonna try to do with me You know, they didn't trade up to the second pick for no reason."

It seems like Washington and Griffin would be a perfect fit for both parties.
