The Washington Redskins are trying to get the most out of their potential quarterbacks for the upcoming NFL Draft, as they hold the second overall pick behind the Indianapolis Colts. Washington may end up with Robert Griffin III, or Andrew Luck.
According to Pro Football Talk, the Redskins are looking to have multiple meetings at Stanford and talk with Luck:
It’s now known that the Redskins plan multiple weekly on-campus meetings with Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III between now and the draft. PFT also has confirmed that the Redskins plan to do the same thing with Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
Redskins G.M. Bruce Allen hinted at this reality in recent comments to Albert Breer of NFL Network. “In the coming weeks, we will be visiting some other colleges,” Allen said.
As one league source explained it to PFT, the Redskins had no choice but to schedule visits with Luck. If it appears that the Redskins prefer Griffin over Luck (and we consistently have heard that the Redskins do), always-unpredictable Colts owner Jim Irsay could be nudged toward taking Griffin over Luck.
The most likely thing Washington will do is have Luck learn some of the playbook, like what they have planned for with RGIII.
However, there is a chance Griffin can be drafted by Indy, so the Redskins are doing this just to be on the safe side it looks like.
