I don't want to act as though 2012 NFL Mock Draft writers' job is easy, exactly, but I will say that if the Washington Redskins don't select Robert Griffin III with the No. 2 pick—acquired from the St. Louis Rams—come April it will be because the draft was canceled after a shocking zombie apocalypse, not because they decided someone better had come along. Nevertheless: RG3's pro day at Baylor came and went without issue, confirming the quarterback's status as the second-best prospect in the draft.
With "Thriller" playing in the background, and the mandate that it "not be so uptight like the combine can be," Griffin wasn't going to surprise anybody who'd already seen him play. But with Mike Shanahan and Daniel Snyder in attendance—among other NFL executives—it was a fine chance for the Washington Redskins and their expensive quarry to get some pre-draft face time. Let's hope, for their sake, that the Redskins' brass liked what they saw.
More NFL Mock Draft stories hand-picked from SB Nation St. Louis:
- The Rams picked up a remarkable bounty for the right to draft Griffin; it's a good thing they already had Sam Bradford.
- Since then, it's been nearly as clear that they'll draft Justin Blackmon with the Redskins' pick.
- Of course... what if the Rams had drafted Robert Griffin III themselves?
