Report: Redskins Ready To Give Up The Farm To Move Up To #2

I've been saying for the past couple of weeks that the two best scenarios for the Minnesota Vikings would be to either draft USC tackle Matt Kalil at #3, or for the St. Louis Rams to take Kalil at #2 and allow the Vikings to auction the third pick off to the highest bidder.

According to reports, the Rams have the same idea, and the auction for the second overall pick may have already started. Our friends at Turf Show Times are reporting that the Washington Redskins are willing to offer the Rams a package that includes their top three picks in the 2012 NFL Draft (the 6th, 39th, and 70th overall selections) as well as their first-round selection in 2013 for the right to move up to the second spot and put themselves in position to take either Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III or Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.

So, if you were one of the three or four people that were holding out hope that the Minnesota Vikings were somehow going to be taking a quarterback at #3 in the 2012 NFL Draft. . .my condolences. It doesn't look like they're going to get the opportunity. It appears that they're going to be "stuck" taking the guy that made the case yesterday for being the best non-quarterback available in this year's draft.

How awful.
