NFL Draft 2012: Washington Redskins' Best Options After Robert Griffin III

Its a foregone conclusion that the Washington Redskins will take Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, so the real mystery is what the Skins will do with the rest of their picks.

Griffin addresses the team's pressing need for a franchise quarterback, but G.M. Bruce Allen and head coach Mike Shanahan still have holes to fill through the draft and free agency.

And since they have traded away this year's second-round pick, as well as the first rounders in 2013 and 2014, each free-agent acquisition and draft pick is that much more important.

In 2011, the 5-11 Redskins had inconsistencies in pass coverage, on the offensive line, and at wide receiver.

Shanahan was aggressive in signing wideouts Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan to complement Santana Moss and promising second year player Leonard Hankerson, so I think it is unlikely they will take a receiver with their third round pick (69th overall).

That leaves the secondary and the O-line as the Redskins' two biggest weaknesses to be addressed in the draft.

The Redskins still have their third and fourth round picks (69th and 102nd overall), and an additional fourth round pick acquired from Oakland in the Jason Campbell trade (106th overall).

Here are 10 players that the Skins should consider with those three picks.
