    I'm glad RGIII is going to the NFC... though imo they overpaid for him...

    3 first rounders and a second rounder is a lot of talented players..

    If you pick right that is easily 3 impact players if not 4.. for one good QB

    Best I could do. Adam Schefter is breaking it on his Twitter page. Apparently Jay Glazer is too. Schefter is pretty spot on most of the time.

    I guess, technically, it isn't for RGIII, rather the #2 overall pick. I think anyone can pretty much figure they did it so they could take RGIII though.

    Haha I have a friend that's a big Cleveland Browns fan... he's livid. Can't believe his team missed their chance to turn their franchise around with this big time QB.

    Wow, three 1's and a 2nd for the second pick. I wonder what we could have gotten for the number 1 pick?

    That was I was kind of thinking, unless someone was prepared to offer us a "Ditka load" of an offer.

    Wouldn't say RGIII is too under developed, he works well with their scheme, but I think they will have to target some type of WR in free agency, as well as in the draft. Too bad they traded away their 2nd round pick this year that could have really came in handy...

    I watched a lot of tape on him and he will get crushed in that divison. He can throw the deep ball well but he can't read defenses well. He will be a classic hold the ball too long QB and he will get hurt with a team like the redskins.

    I do not care if we overpaid, we need a franchise QB and if that means taking a risk by giving up a lot, so be it.

    I wish the 2nd round picked wasn't involved, but better make a trade and actually draft someone who can develop (when is the last time that happened, Jason Campbell) then trade for some 85 year old QB. Or even Manning, and his neck injuries.

    I am still in shock that this is happening, but I think I am happy. I will be even happier if we somehow get a couple of young receivers to go with Banks and Moss, if Moss is even back.

    Sorry, I need to go pinch myself and make sure I am not dreaming.

    works well with their scheme is a understatement you couldn't design a QB who fits better in the Shanahan bootleg system. RG3 has a ton of Jay Cutler in his game and even more Aaron Rodgers.

    I dont blame the Skins he is a perfect fit and they maybe overpaid but in 5 years they will be happy they did IMO this is a smart gamble IMO.


    Rams did very well for themselves as well worked for both teams.


    there was 0% chance the Rams kept the pick it was way to valuable Justin Blackmon isnt worth 4 picks one being #6 overall

    How about we let the team actually have a second off season with Shannahan and Bruce Allen running things before we claim they have no assets and he will get killed right away.

    Its going to take more than one or two years here and that's why I said that. They will have a lot of money to sign a wr but the redskins need a lot of help on the oline IMO. I agree with p4E that the redskins scheme fits well but I doubt other teams will not target RG3 on naked bootd legs.

    Right, and luckily for Washington Snyder has no problem doing whatever Allen wants.

    Before Rex Grossman went....well Grossman on us, we were a miracle team with a lot of guys plugging holes. Granted we had some key injuries (and I douby Landry comes back to Washington...maybe even pro football) but this team was doing things, with no name guys last year.

    We have needed a franchise QB for over 20 year. We simply could not keep using the likes of Todd Bedd, Rex Grossman, and other backups and expect them to carry up.

    Campbell did not work out, and it was like the team was afraid to take a chance on a QB after that.

    Could this backfire? Yes. But we NEED a qb.

    No one is saying he will turn Washington around overnight. But with our other picks (there are 6 other rounds), plus free agency, we can shore up some holes and add some weapons.

    We basically gave up two future number 1's and this years number 2 to have a franchise QB. People can call us crazy, but the Rams had plenty of other teams offering the same deal (rumor is others were about to offer more).

    Sometimes you have to take a risk. Pacers got burnt with the Artest risk, but if they had won a NBA championship Walsh would have been hailed as a genius.

    If RGIII is on the top 10 worst draft moves in 10 years then it will be a terrible trade, but if he is the QB for the next 10 years, and even takes us into the playoffs once or twice he will be well worth his price.

    FWIW, the Redskins actually have picks to work with for the first time in....forever

    From what I can tell, this is how our drafts shake out:

    2012: 1st, 3rd, 4th, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

    2013: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

    2014: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

    They have little over $40 Million in cap to spend so they can go after whoever they want in FA. Vincent Jackson comes to mind.

    2 #1s you are forgetting that the Rams have to also send their 2012 #2 overall pick

    they are just swamping picks for 2012.


    This is basically the same package the Bears gave up to get Cutler 2 #1s and a #2.


    Anyway this was a smart move for the Skins they never have built through the draft. They will likely have more picks next year in the draft than they have in the past few seasons. I really like this move for the Skins. RG3 has the right mindset I dont think he is very risky very smart kid who can make all the throws.
