Giving Up Too Much?

On Friday night news broke that the Washington Redskins had a deal in place with the St. Louis Rams that would have them acquire the 2nd overall pick in this years draft. For weeks rumors swirled that a trade would take place between the Rams and a handful of different teams. The Browns, Dolphins and Redskins were all front runners, but when it was all said and done, the Redskins made sure that they wouldn’t fall short of getting that 2nd pick.

With everyone expecting the Colts to take Andrew Luck with the 1st pick of this years draft, it’s pretty clear that the Redskins want Robert Griffin III badly. Here is the run down of the trade.

St.Louis Rams acquire 4 Picks from the Washington Redskins

1st Round Pick 2012 (6th overall)

1st Round Pick 2013

1st Round Pick 2014

2nd Round pick 2012 (39th overall)

Washington Redskins acquire 1 Pick from the St. Louis Rams

1st Round Pick 2012 (2nd overall)

To move up 4 spots in the draft and get their guy the Redskins have given up 3 first round picks and this years 2nd round pick (which is a top 40 pick) If you’re a St. Louis Rams fan good for you, odds are your team will still get Justin Blackmon and now you have 3 awesome picks to go with it. If you’re a Redskins fan you better hope RG3 is the real thing.

I would have never made this trade if I was the general manager for the skins. I get you want that franchise quarterback, but I think this is a ridiculous amount to give up to someone who’s never taken a snap in the league?

Would you have made the trade?

    Skins gave up way too much. I would stay at 1east 1 first round pick too much. St. Louis only dropped a few spots back and will end up with the player they have their eye on in the first place. Coach Fisher should win a Super Bowl in the next 7 years.
