A case could be made that the Washington Redskins mortgaged a good deal of their future in moving up 4 spots to draft Robert Griffin III. As you no doubt already are aware, they swapped their first round pick, number 6 in the round, as well as this year’s second rounder, and first round picks in both 2013 and 2014 for the right to draft RGIII at the number 2 spot.
CSN Washington reports today that NFL draft analyst Todd Mcshay is of the opinion the the Skins grossly overpaid for Griffin. During a conference call with reporters today, McShay said, “I don’t really believe the difference between Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill is all that big, to be honest.”
It’s true that Tannehill had an impressive pro day, but Mcshay may live to regret that statement. I’m of the opinion that Griffin is a world-class athlete, whereas Tannehill is well, an Aggie.
What’s your take?
