Hard to be choosy in the 3rd round. I would like a few others before these as well but 3rd round is usually not a round to pick the lineman of your choice as if you know they would still be there in the 3rd and not have to worry about it. We would be lucky to get such talent in the 3rd. Not saying there isn't talent in the 3rd and they might find a quick lineman. But this is good talent and I'm sure he is quick enough for Shanny. He is as good a guard as we have now for sure.

If RG III were white, fans would apporve this trade in a heartbeat. LOL

I guess No-one remember us completely ripping off the the Rams 3 years ago in the Carriker trade. It might not be that sexy but we got a first round talent and a starter for 14 spots in the 5th round. And it really looks like we were on the right side of the Blaine Gabbert move back trade last year where we got some guy named kerrigan ( I think he is going to be pretty good) and another draft pick. I will admit that these trades have been few and far between in the last ten years or so but that was the old regime this one has a track record albeit small but a track record all the same of making great trades and hopefully this will turn into the best one yet.

I love this move and think it absolutely had to happen.

No need to dumb the thread down. Almost 90% already approve.

This move tells me that BA, MS, DS believe we can win now. Thats why we mortgaged our future.

I'm not unhappy with it at all. Just wish we had held onto our 2nd.

Re: Redskins agree to trade for No.2 overall pick in 2012 Draft

WOW. Thats all I have to say. I called this trade 4 months ago.

My question is though, if Washington gave THAT much up to get RGIII, why not go up one more for Luck? Would the price be that much more for one slot?

Either way, the Skins are getting (were obviously assuming) a GREAT quarterback, on paper that is.

I wish it could have been a 2nd next year instead. But it was probably the trump card that pushed this deal over the top.

Still, I could see Allen doing something to move back up.

Hey so where's the "insider" that was convinced we were getting McCoy and Shipley?

Probably crying in his corn flakes this morning.

Not that I think we care about getting Luck, but if we did the only way to do that would be to get to 2 and then trade to 1. The Colts need one of the 2 quarterbacks, so I don't think they would have traded down to 6 no matter what.

Why give up another for Luck if ya think Griffin is better or at least equal to Luck?

Yeah but none of the trading we've done has translated to wins.
