Did the Redskins waste a lot of draft picks to move up from sixth to second in the upcoming draft? ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay might tell you they did.
When asked to compare two of the top quarterbacks in the draft 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."
The Redskins gave up their second-round choice this year and their first-round picks in 2013 and 2014 to move up. They will draft Griffin if the Colts, who have the top pick, do what most assume they will do and take Andrew Luck.
Tannehill is likely to be available when the Redskins original pick at sixth overall.
So, what do you think? Is McShay out of his mind? Or could Tanehill be as good as Griffin or have a career that is close enough to RG3’s to make the Redskins wonder why they gave up those three premium draft picks?
