Unfortunately, the Rams just took Minnesota's top target in Matt Kalil. The bright side of the pick, however, is that Minnesota would be in a commanding spot with their third overall pick. With teams such as Washington, Seattle, Kansas City, and perhaps Cleveland vying for the services of Robert Griffin, the Vikings can extract a nice heap of draft picks in exchange for this one.
So being that a trade in this upcoming draft seems rather inevitable, I will predict a swap between Minnesota and the Washington Redskins. The trade would certainly entail the Redskins surrendering their sixth overall pick to the Vikes, as well as a few more selections in either this draft or a future one.
Minnesota would be pushed down to the sixth spot, where they can grab a top offensive lineman in either Riley Reiff or Jonathan Martin. While the Vikings will grab a huge need on their line, Washington will then fill their major need by taking this year's Heisman winner.
We all know about Washington's horrific quarterback history, so Griffin would be nothing short of a savior for the struggling franchise. He has ridiculous accuracy on his deep throws, can make plays with his feet and was college football's best player in 2011.
Griffin has passed for 36 touchdowns and 3,998 yards and thrown just six picks. He has also displayed his explosive run game, rushing for 644 yards and nine touchdowns.
After seeing Carolina take a risk that paid off huge dividends with Cam Newton, perhaps the Redskins will have no problems taking a calculated chance of their own on a quarterback with multiple tools.
