Robert Griffin III, 2011 Heisman Trophy winner, is headed to Washington. The Redskins used their second overall pick in last night's NFL draft to select the promising quarterback, and there's much excitement among Redskins fans.
Griffin is credited with lifting Baylor's football program to new heights during his four years there.
To get the sought-after QB, Washington dealt a second-round pick this year and its first-rounders in 2013 and '14 to St. Louis to move up four spots. That landed them with the Quarterback known as RG3.
The Texas native and soon-to-be Washingtonian was chosen during the NFL draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York Thursday. "RG3," as he's nicknamed, will play his first game before a Washington audience at Fed-Ex Field in Landover on Aug. 23.
