Draft Reaction: Washington selects QB Robert Griffin III

What the Redskins get in Robert Griffin III

Quality quarterback play.  A shiny new toy.  A coaches’ dream.  The end of a twenty year nightmare?  Ticket sales.  A rejuvenated fanbase.  4,000 passing yards in year one.  A true pocket passer who can put the ball in any corner of the field at any time.  7 Process Points!

What Robert Griffin III gets in the Redskins

The key to the city one of the NFL’s largest markets.  Endorsements, so very many endorsements.  A contention-ready NFL offense.  Depressed expectations.  A single primetime game.  A preseason showdown with Andrew Luck.

What the Redskins don’t get in Robert Griffin III

A pro-ready sense of the pocket, or a low college sack rate.  The consistency they wanted at receiver, or running back.  Trent Richardson or Justin Blackmon.  First round picks in 2013 and 2014.  The 39th overall pick this year.  A runner who will make people miss in the open field.  The picks they spent on Heath Shuler, Patrick Ramsey, Mark Brunell, Jason Campbell, and Donovan McNabb.

What Robert Griffin won’t get in the Redskins

A team that has done a lot of winning recently.  A favorable division to win games in.  Coaching stability.  A strong personnel department.  An opportunity to sit behind a veteran.  An easy Week 1 game (New Orleans Saints @the Superdome).  A defense that can stop the pass.  Sanity.
