NFL Draft 2012: Robert Griffin III 'Will Be The No. 2 Pick' According To Walterfootball

There's been plenty of speculation about Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III and where on earth he's going to go in the NFL draft ever since he declared he was going to the NFL. At first it looked like the Cleveland Browns were going to watch him drop to their fourth overall selection, pick him there and reap the results.

Recently, a very different trend has emerged involving no fewer than three or four teams who have been linked to picking up Griffin after trading with either the St. Louis Rams or the Minnesota Vikings to get their second or third picks. Of course the Browns are included

WalterFootball in his newest 2012 mock draft makes it very clear that he's sure Griffin will be gone before the Browns make their actual selection. Actually, he takes it even a bit farther than saying just that:

Griffin will be the No. 2 pick. He's a top-five consensus prospect, and there are too many teams that have dire quarterback needs. Besides, the Rams have way too many holes on their roster not to trade down.

If Griffin will be the No. 2 selection, the question to ask is if the Browns two first rounders will be enough ammo to get him with a ravenous Washington Redskins team likely also in the hunt?
