It’s been a long time coming, but the Redskins have finally solved their issues at quarterback for the future. Robert Griffin III is a tantalizing prospect who has fought through lingering injury issues bu has a world of talent on the field. Griffin III is extremely mobile and has terrific down field accuracy. The bigger thing though is finally the Redskins can stop looking for a quarterback for the future, hopefully it’ll turn out better than when they selected Jason Campbell in the first round.

The Redskins gave up a lot to get him-swapping first round picks this year, getting a 1st round pick in 2013 and 2014 and a second round pick in 2013, but I think most Redskins fans would agree it was worth the price.

Grade: B+

I have some reservations about RGIII, especially a little bit of an injury history and a question about how healthy he can stay and the Redskins gave up an awful lot get him, but this is still a really good pick.
