Chris Mortensen just reported the following via Twitter:
Griffin, of course, is the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback. And, of more interest to the Redskins and their fans, he is considered to be the second-best quarterback available in the upcoming NFL draft.
The Redskins, of course, are in need of a franchise quarterback and Griffin could well fill that need. The issue is that the Redskins are picking sixth in the first round. The Cleveland Browns, who are draft fourth, could decide that Colt McCoy will not get it done and take Griffin. Or, another team could trade into the top five and snag him.
That means that if the Redskins want to assure that they can draft Griffin it is likely that they will have to trade up, possibly up to the second spot. The Colts are widely expected to take quarterback Andrew Luck of Stanford with their first pick.
There is a long way to go in the process before any decisions are made, but this certainly gives Redskins fans something to ponder over the next few months.
