Redskins are expected to get another 7th round pick. Don't ask me to explain how

What about a compensatory pick for Carlos Rogers or Stephon Heyer?

Bruce Allen is George Allen's son whose motto was "the future is now" and was known for mortgaging the Redskins future with old over the hill players for #1 picks (during the 70's the Redskins didn't have a #1pick for years thanks to George) . The difference in this case is that they went for a young player, yes they overspent but the potential is there for super stardom. We shall see if this was a good trade or a really bad trade in a year or 2.

It's not really from Rogers leaving, just extra picks the NFL hands out at the end of the draft

Either way it's an additional pick.

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

Here's what I'll say: if a quarterback of Robert Griffin's stature was this important to the success of the Washington Redskins under Mike Shanahan, then they should never have made the McNabb deal. They should have been willing to take their 2011 and 2012 1st rounders along with the 2010 second that went for McNabb and traded it to whomever for the quarterback they really wanted.

I realize Griffin is probably a better prospect then anyone they could have had in 2010, certainly better than Sam Bradford was in that draft, but they shouldn't have been worried about trading up for Bradford. They should have went out and got Rodgers or Flacco or Ryan or Roethlisberger (since he was on the trade block at the time) or Eli or Schaub or Palmer and frankly just admitted that they were incapable of winning without such a player.

There was no reason to waste two years waiting for the perfect prospect if you were just going to pay whatever it took to get him and ignore all historical context for the market anyway. Given what we know now, that was a brutal waste of two years.

Better late than never, I suppose, and Griffin is about as good as pro prospects get at this position. But it's hard to see this as anything but a huge admission of poor planning by the Shanahans who feel it's totally cool to spend draft picks which they are contractually obligated to use to build this team, though they were/are unlikely to actually be around when the picks will actually be made.

The other benefit (we have plenty of time to debate RGIII) of making this trade now is clarity for the rest of the offseason. Our top question has been answered, we know who the QB will be, now we can shop in free agency without having to wonder who is going to be under center. We can focus on WR, OL, RB, S, CB with our $45 million in cap space.

I'm waking up on the sunny side of the bed this morning, we got our QB, we still have 7 picks in 2012, 7 picks in 2013 & 6 picks in 2014.
Solid post dude. Other side of the argument for me, but I gotta respect the optimism.

I wouldn't necessarily call it poor planning. Maybe (maybe) I would go as far as to say they were over-confident in their abilities to make this team a winner with the likes of McNabb or RG1 or John Beck. But you know, sometimes shit just doesn't work out the way you draw it up. They realized the past two years' experiments didn't work and the opportunity presented itself to get a potential superstar and they went "all in" as the saying goes. I think the price was high, but the more I look at it, the more I am ok with it. If not now, when...if not this guy, who...

I for one am excited and ready to see what else we can pull off between now and the end of April. There is legitimate reason to be pumped up about the Redskins this year and I can't wait until September.

Heyer was an undrafted free agent, so no pick

I appreciate your frustration, but perhaps it's more falling completely for RG3. If you feel that in 20 years RG3 will be entering Canton with 5 Super Bowl rings, wouldn't you want him to have played for you instead of someone else? The thought among a lot of NFL people is that Luck and RG3 are two once in a decade QB's. I think they overpaid, but if you think RG3 is a faster Tom Brady, what wouldn't you trade for him?
