Without causing a commotion, there are a few reasons why Redskins Nation may want to blow off work and patrol the streaming broadcast of today’s Baylor Pro Day:
1. There are projected to be two elite quarterbacks available in April’s NFL Draft.
2. Regardless of order, they are presumed to be going in the top two picks.
3. The Redskins have finalized a trade to move up to No. 2.
4. One of those players is having his Pro Day today.
There are no guarantees in sports (or life in general), but you may draw your own conclusions from there.
This is the first time that NFL fans and scouts will get a look at Robert Griffin III throw the ball to wide receiver Kendall Wright since they knocked off Washington in the Alamo Bowl. Both players’ stock has risen since last month’s Combine, despite Griffin electing to not throw the football.
Today, in his natural environment, throwing to his receivers, the world will see what RG3 looks like for, presumably, the last time before he turns pro. You may, can and should watch it all on ESPN3, live at noon E.T.
Editor’s Disclaimer: As it currently sits, the Redskins control the second overall pick, and do not have rights to any particular amateur player. That will be decided on April 26th.
