The Washington Redskins traded up for the second pick with St. Louis Rams and exchanged the sixth pick, two future first-round picks and a second-round pick to draft Robert Griffin III out of Baylor.
Griffin had 4,293 passing yards, 37 touchdowns, six interceptions, 72.4 completion percentage and a 189.5 passer rating. In his career, he had 10,366 passing yards, 78 touchdowns, 17 interceptions, 67.1 completion percentage and a 189.5 passer rating.
Griffin is 6'2" and 220 pounds. Despite his speed (Griffin ran a 4.41 at the combine in the 40-yard dash, fastest among quarterbacks), his accuracy is what amazes scouts. He can get out of pocket and still can make long throws, instead of always taking and running the ball always. He is not your typical mobile quarterback, as he possesses a strong arm with the ability to throw deep ball.
Draft needs: QB, S, CB, OL
