Washington Redskins Select Robert Griffin III With Second-Overall Pick

The Washington Redskins have claimed their franchise quarterback by selecting Robert Griffin III of Baylor with the second overall pick.

It’s been a long time coming for Washington fans who haven’t had a true franchise quarterback since Sonny Jurgensen retired after the 1974 season. In RG3, the Redskins have the quarterback they hope will lead the team back to the top of the NFL where they once reigned in better days.

After what the Washington Redskins paid to get him, Robert Griffin III better be worth it.
