NFL Draft 2012: WalterFootball Says Browns Would Be 'Insane' To Pass On Robert Griffin

There was a point in time recently where it was a foregone conclusion that the Cleveland Browns would draft Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III. Recently, that move has been a little less solid with teams like the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins taking the reins and stealing the second overall pick away. That's tended to leave Cleveland with guys like Justin Blackmon and Morris Claiborne instead of the guy they really want.

WalterFootball is of the mind that the Browns will still trade up to the second overall pick in order to get their man, and in his explanation for the fourth pick, he says that Griffin might still fall that far where the Browns could get him without needing to trade, but it's doubtful.

Some mocks have Robert Griffin slipping to this spot, but I don't see how that can possibly happen, given how many teams need quarterbacks. Griffin is a stud, and the Browns would be completely insane to pass up on him.

Completely insane indeed, maybe those words of encouragement will be what Cleveland need in order to pull themselves up and trade for that second overall pick!
