The Redskins have made a trade with the St. Louis Rams that will likely allow the Redskins to draft Heisman Trophy-winning Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.
According to Glazer, "the Redskins and Rams will swap first-rounders this year. The Rams also will receive future first-round picks as well as additional draft picks, one of which is believed to be a second-rounder, sources said."
