NFL Draft Drama

February 28, 2012

Even though the NFL ended another season, the drama is still there.  Football teams look to the future to help their teams rebuild.  It seems Indianapolis will take Andrew Luck.  Or will they?

Heisman winner and Baylor alum Robert Griffin III impressed teams without throwing a ball.  He ran a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash.  He places second behind Luck in prospective quarterbacks, but it might change come draft day.  The Colts still don’t know what to do with Peyton Manning.  It’s likely they will take a quarterback, with Luck as a lock according to experts.  Regardless, a quarterback will be available after the first pick.  This brings us to yesterday’s announcement.

The St. Louis Rams, who already have a quarterback in Sam Bradford, announced they will trade their number two pick.  It’s clear the Rams want a lot.  Which team is willing to give up a lot for the number two pick?  Let’s see which teams could get the number two pick that need a quarterback.

#6 Washington Redskins: the Redskins have John Beck and could court Manning to join. Could they really pass up on this opportunity though?  It’s unlikely, but they need to give up a lot.  That is the question they need to ask themselves.

#4 & #22 Cleveland Browns: the Browns have Colt McCoy as their current quarterback, but he suffered a concussion during the season.  The Browns would love to trade up.  They have the picks but might not have the money.  RB Peyton Hillis could resign and get a hefty contract.

#8 Miami Dolphins: the Dolphins have Chad Henne, but they are rebuilding.  They could use Griffin for their franchise.  They have the tools to give to the Rams, but they might not be willing.  The Dolphins could stay with Henne, who has not lived to his potential.  But they could do a lot worse at QB.

#12 Seattle Seahawks: the Seahawks could be the team that trades up.  Their QB is Tavaris Jackson.  Coach Pete Carroll knows how to integrate quarterbacks into the NFL.  It could be a match made in heaven.  One hiccup is the system.  Would Griffin fit into Carroll’s plans?
