3. Washington Redskins
Apparently, the whole Robert Griffin III thing isn’t working out in the nation’s capital. Kirk Cousins couldn’t prove himself when given the opportunity, and nobody is pegging Colt McCoy as Washington’s long-term solution at the position.
Given how the season played out, it doesn’t appear as if RGIII and coach Jay Gruden can co-exist unless the quarterback is willing to play Gruden’s style of football. It wouldn’t surprise anybody to see Griffin wearing a new uniform in 2015 or the year after, so perhaps the team must try to find its next franchise quarterback.
Like many of these other teams drafting in the top five, there are more holes than just quarterback to fill. However, Gruden is an offensive-minded coach, so he’ll likely want to address the quarterback position at some point in the draft. Winston fits the mold for Gruden’s system; it may just be a matter of Winston lasting to No. 5.
