Today in the National Football League you need a quarterback to reach the ultimate prize of the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for the Redskins, they've gone far too long without a signal-caller that fans can consistently count on. Many fans have already circled the date in their calendar—April 26th, the day the Redskins draft their franchise quarterback.

His name will be Robert Griffin III.

But...what if he's not available by the sixth pick and the Redskins aren't able to trade up for him? Then what?

I highly doubt Mike Shanahan has is going "all-in" on drafting Griffin. Of course he has a backup plan in case that's not an option.

In Shanahan's coaching career he's acquired quarterbacks every way imaginable. Whether that was signing a veteran Jake Plummer, trading up in the draft to select Jay Cutler, or by trading for an aged veteran in Donovan McNabb. Shany never shies away from making moves for a quarterback.

So in the scenario where Griffin isn't available (which presumably means neither is Andrew Luck), what are the Redskins' options?
