NFL Mock Draft 2012: Washington Redskins Latest Team Linked To RG3

SB Nation's Ryan Van Bigger has your latest Mock Draft before the NFL's free agency period likely alters the landscape of team needs across the league.

While the destination of Peyton Manning certainly looms large for teams in the market for a quarterback, Baylor's Robert Griffin III is still predicted to be wearing a Redskins uniform, provided they can strike a deal with St. Louis at the No. 2 spot:

So Cleveland wants to be stubborn. Valuing their 22nd pick and whatever acceptable player they can get with it over a franchise quarterback. Washington will recognize the value if Cleveland cannot, throwing its picks at the Rams and coming out better in the long run.

And just like in any other year, the Bears of Waco are set to have multiple first round draft picks, as Van Bibber projects that RG3's favorite target, Kendall Wright, will go in the first 32 as well:

25. Denver Broncos, Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

I think Wright is a good fit to pair with Tim Tebow because it sort of replicates what Tim Tebow had at Florida with Percy Harvin. Wright is a multifaceted threat, capable of working on the outside, in the slot and out of the backfield. He can make their option offense better and still be a threat in more traditional NFL packages.
