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

My biggest fear with RG3 is that he pulls an Eli before the draft and says he doesn't want to play for us. You guys have no idea how pissed I would be if that happened. And this fear is only because since we've traded for the 2nd overall pick, he hasn't really come out and gave us a ringing endorsement as a team he wants to play for.

He probably still wants to be at least considered for the 1st overall pick. Plus, he comes across as very diplomatic, IMO, so he may not want to say much until he's actually on a team.

nah i dont think hes like that, i certainly hope not. Even if I could pick out of the two, i think i would pick him. Yes Luck is going to be a good qb in this league but I think RG3 will be as well he could be something remarkable.

He came out during the combine and said he had a fantastic experience with the Redskins coaching staff and FO during interviews. (Though that could be just combine-speak.) My guess is he'll be thrilled to play for us and not the Browns.

He's definitely not that kind of kid.

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

I don't think he's the kind of kid that would come out and publicly declare his non-interest in playing for us, I'm just kind of concerned that maybe he looks at how much we gave up and is saying to himself, "holy shit after all they gave up, and knowing in all likelihood that will be my team, I'm not sure if I can deal with all the pressure that will be put on me to succeed." Everything I've read indicates he does well under pressure, but as we all know putting the hopes of a franchise on one kid rarely works out.

If he's thinking that way he probably doesn't belong in the NFL.

There's going to be pressure no matter where he plays.

It's not in him to do that .....

He had to have known that whoever picked him up was going to have to spend a ton of picks. God knows the Rams weren't going to get him.

True. But how many qb's have to deal with a desperate franchise like ours, combined with the fact that 3 first round picks were given up for them?

I think he has the talent and right mentality to succeed in the NFL, I'm just thinking about potential concerns.

Plenty of QBs have gone to "desperate" franchises. The pressure is high regardless of what team you are on.

I understand thinking about potential concerns, but in this case I think he's well prepared to handle it.

I wish the draft would just hurry up and get here already, I really can't wait to see hopefully RG3 walk across the stage and take a picture with The Rog holding up a Redskins jersey.
