The Redskins, if unable to get Griffin III, should then trade back and use their 6th overall pick to acquire a mid 1st round selection and additional picks for the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Then and only then would taking Tannehill be a smart move. At least we still get our QB even if it isn't truly the one we want, and we get more draft choices to fill other holes along the roster.
Try telling that to the dolphins, bills, seahawks, and even the chiefs and cardinals - all of whom pick at 13 or before. One of these teams - I would bet - pick Tannehill in the first. Tannehill is definitely not a polished qb, but he may have more potential than any other qb with the exception of Luck. In my opinion, the rest of qbs (after luck, RGIII, and Tannehill) aren't even worth the trouble of drafting because they don't seem to have the potential of even starting in the nfl.

The Shanahans are feeling the pressure of drafting their qb of the future in THIS draft- regardless of who they pick up in free agency. If they don't trade up to get RGIII, I think they have no choice but to draft Tannehill with the 6th pick.

Tannehill should go in the top 10. If he is our guy, waiting for 15-32 is not a good idea 'cuz he'll be gone.

Other than the Skins, who in the top-10 will be crazy enough, I mean, interested enough in taking Tannehill that high?

Only the Bills and Dolphins are in the top 10. I see your point. This is why Tannehill's stock will rise. Not because of anything else related to talent. Teams are desperate. No thanks to Barkley and Jones of course.

Ok that's 2 out of the 6 teams ... In this league where teams will overpay for a potential franchise qb- you don't think that one of these teams will draft him if he's available. That's at least 6 of the top 13 AFTER the redskins that have a good reason to draft him.

... But to me if a qb has the potential to be the franchise qb. I don't care if he's drafted at 6 or 60th overall - if that's a need on your team I think you just draft him as soon as possible. And if you think you can take a calculated risk by trading down and still get him then do it. But be ready to feel the pain if the risk backfires when a team drafts him and he's no longer available.

You're right Warrioz'. I just don't think Tannehill totally seperates himself from Weeden, Foles, and a couple other prospects. The crazy thing is, four QBs could be selected in the first round. You can't worry about not being able to draft players that get selected before your team picks.

... how many times can the Shanahans go through an entire offseason and not draft a quarterback that they can develop? I think they have no choice but to draft a qb this time around.

I said early on that Mike Shanahans legacy will depend on what he does with the qb position in Washington.

The good thing for the Shanahans is that they buy some time by drafting a qb early in the draft. If they don't and whoever at qb in 2012 doesn't produce - that may mean the end for the Shanahan regime. But they also must make this pick count by picking the qb they want.

^Are you suggesting they go all in for Luck or RG3? Why settle for Tannehill?

At this point you have to assume that Lucks not a possibility. So my plan A would be to sign Manning and then draft Tannehill at 6 and have him sit for at least one year. My plan B would be - to do whats needed to trade up to 2 to get RGIII.

That's if I were in Mike Shanahans position.

I think it's more beneficial to the redskins that they are having these talks sooner rather than later. Gives them a chance to see if trading up is reasonable for them and it also gives them some time to think through their options.
