Robert Griffin III has inspired hope among Washington Redskins fans like no other draft prospect could.
And while the 'Skins went to work on this draft, trading for their hopeful answer under center, they didn't leave much room to actually build around RG3 the future.
Washington gave up its sixth overall pick, their 2012 second-rounder and their 2013 and 2014 first-round selections to snake up just four spots and swipe Griffin III.
Don't get me wrong, RG3 will likely be a great player for Washington, but it's a risky move.
This offseason, the Redskins signed Pierre Garcon, who will carry the load for Washington at wideout.
But if Garcon goes down, Washington's receiving situation will be fragile, and they won't have much leverage to pick up another blockbuster player.
To their credit, the 'Skins made good moves during the draft, accumulating guards to bolster their O-line and keep their new quarterback on his feet.
Washington was also wise to draft a quarterback in Round 3. The hope here is that he develops, and they can extract trade value from him in the future.
Still, Washington gave up an unprecedented amount to land a pick in the top five, leaving themselves little wiggle room in the future.
