After this past weekend the argument over who should be #1 in the upcoming NFL Draft heated up even more. Both RG3 and Andrew Luck in my opinion outperformed what some were thinking we would see prior to the NFL Combine.
There is little doubt that the Indianapolis Colts are going to draft Andrew Luck but, the big question is who’s going to draft RG3 and where?
The Rams have said that they are committed to QB Sam Bradford, who they selected with the No. 1 overall pick in 2010 and that they are willing to trade down but it’s going to cost the team that wants RG3’s services several draft selections including two first round picks.
The teams that are in a position to play ball with the Rams include: The Cleveland Browns (4th and 22nd overall) and Redskins (6th overall), Dolphins (8th overall), and Seahawks (12th overall).
According to Jarrett Bell of the USA today the Washington Redskins seem most likely to make a play for RG3 because of their deficiencies at the position in a division that features some of the NFL’s most prolific QB’s including Michael Vick, Tony Romo, and 2x Super Bowl Champion Eli Manning.
However, the price would be very steep for Redskins, who might have to deal first, second, and third round picks this year, plus a first-round pick in 2013, for the #2 overall spot in the draft.
After seeing the Falcons trade the farm for Julio Jones last year I can only wonder if giving up so much would really be worth it for a team like the Redskins?
What do you think?
