Even though you knew this was coming, it was still magical to watch that goofy grin split the face of quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Whether the Heisman Trophy winner will become Washington's answer under center remains to be seen, but the Redskins at least know they are leaving Radio City Music Hall with an unrelenting work horse.
Although he comes off as a goofball, Griffin made good on his promise to revive Baylor's football program with determination and dedication.
As a redshirt sophomore, he finally convinced students to fill the empty bleachers that had long plagued the university's football program, leading Baylor to its first bowl game in 16 years.
Last year, RG3 provided a thrilling encore with a win in the Valero Alamo Bowl.
With that exclamation point punctuating his time at Baylor, he decided to declare for the draft.
While Griffin is a can't-miss prospect, the Redskins should have been more draft-savvy.
You only have to pore over about a decade of draft history to realize that name recognition among most quarterbacks who go early peaked at the time of their selection. And yet Washington gave up its sixth overall pick, this year's second-round pick and their 2013 and 2014 first-round selections to move up just four spots, guaranteeing RG3.
After closing out last season with a 5-11 record, the Redskins need more than just a quarterback to turn themselves around. Missing those selections will hurt.
And worse, if Griffin is a bust, the 'Skins have committed themselves to the bottom of the NFC East for years to come.
