    Glad RG3 didn't end up in Cleveland personally. He's going to be a great fit with Shanahan and gets to play in a huge market now.

    Wow. Two future first round picks and at least one second. Quite a haul by the Rams.

    Incredible that #Rams get two future 1st-round picks & a 2nd-rounder for moving down 4 slots in the draft. I mean, just think about that.

    Wtf? Why couldn't we get a deal like that what when we were drafting top 5? I know, the new rookie pay scale makes it feasible but it still sucks.

    Sweet. I'm happy, as it means the Browns will not waste 3 1sts on that guy. I like RG3 a lot, but sending that many picks for him isn't worth it for the Browns. Justin Blackmon will be a Cleveland Brown :D

    Well the Rams will be dangerous in a couple of years if they have any luck drafting the next couple of years. Damn the Rams are going to have a ton of 1st round draft picks. Welcome to the playoffs.

    Well if you're a fan of RG3 then you should be happy for him... He's going to be a BEAST in that system (assuming DanO has enough patience). That guy is going to be unstoppable on roll outs and naked boots. I'm glad he's going to the NFC as well.

    If RG3 is as awesome as everyone expects, the best part is we get to watch him beat up on the Cowgirls twice every year

    Yep but those are not 2012 picks. They get better over the years.

    The Rams do not need a QB and RG3 is going to be a franchise QB.

    Good, he will show what a difference it makes having a mobile QB in this system. He is going to be a superstar. Wouldn't it be funny if Indy decided to take RG111?

    I just hate the Skins man. Hate their uni's, their owner, and everything about that franchise. Always have.

    I really like RG3 and he's one of the best QB's I've ever seen heading into the draft. People like to make all of these comparisons to different running QB's with him because he's fast and mainly because he's black so he gets compared to guys like Vick and Cam Newton, but to me he is more like a much faster version of Aaron Rodgers with slightly less of an arm. Over all he is a much better prospect than what Rodgers was when Rodgers entered the draft.

    RG3 reminds me of Steve Young. Too bad for him the Skins don't have Jerry Rice.

    2 St. Louis Long, Chris DE
    3 Atlanta Ryan, Matt QB
    4 Oakland McFadden, Darren RB
    5 Kansas City Dorsey, Glenn DT
    6 NY Jets Gholston, Vernon DE
    7 New Orleans Ellis, Sedrick DT
    8 Jacksonville Harvey, Derrick DE
    9 Cincinnati Rivers, Keith LB
    10 New England Mayo, Jerod OLB
    11 Buffalo McKelvin, Leodis CB
    12 Denver Clady, Ryan OT
    13 Carolina Stewart, Jonathan RB
    14 Chicago Williams, Chris OT
    15 Kansas City Albert, Branden OG
    16 Arizona Rodgers-Cromartie, Dominique CB
    17 Detroit Cherilus, Gosder OT
    18 Baltimore Flacco, Joe QB
    19 Carolina Otah, Jeff OT

    Not if Griffin does what I think he will do.

    Those 1st rders will be low picks. If the scouting dept does their jobs and with Snyders willingness to spend in FA the Redskins should be a good team.

    Quick: when is the last time the Redskins had a great QB?
