Major scoopage: Redskins have agreed to a trade w Rams for #2 pick of draft. Rams and Skins swap (cont) tl.gd/gbhvr8— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) March 10, 2012
The Redskins, desperate for an upgrade at the QB position, paid a hefty price for the opportunity to select Baylor's Robert Griffin III.
In return for moving up four spots in the draft, they are sending two future No. 1 draft picks as well as additional undisclosed picks to St. Louis.
Washington will present both an opportunity and a challenge for Griffin. Mike Shanahan, his coach, had an excellent record of producing QB's for the Denver Broncos, but he's seemed out of his depth since returning to the NFL to become the Redskins coach.
Whatever happens, the eyes of the NFL and the national media in the Northeast corridor will be on the Baylor star going forward.
