You know, Robert Griffin III isn’t likely going to be the first pick in this month’s draft, but it seems like he’s still the most compelling draft night story. ESPN the Magazine evidently agrees. Here’s the cover of the draft preview issue, which will start hitting subscribers on Wednesday and newsstands on Friday.
The story, by former Post writer Tom Friend, is called “Third and Gold,” and “explores RG3’s unique blend of charisma, will, speed and smarts” in what the magazine is calling a “definitive profile on the draft’s most important player.”
Other features in the issue include a crowd-souced version of the first round, a photo shoot with mid-round draft prospects, and a feature on Stanford’s Andrew Luck, David DeCastro and Jonathan Martin.
