Watch Robert Griffin III: Redskins go all in for Baylor’s stellar QB

View Photo Gallery: Robert Griffin III has a Heisman Trophy and a colorful socks collection. He also will be the presumed No. 2 pick of the Washington Redskins in the NFL Draft .

The Washington Redskins went all in, trading three first-round picks and a second-rounder to the St. Louis Rams for the No. 2 pick in next month’s NFL Draft.

It’s the kind of move they used to be known for and, while you ponder whether the team gave up too much for the right to presumably draft Robert Griffin III, watch a few videos of the Heisman Trophy winner out of Baylor, then cast your vote.

Baylor’s official video:

The socks! The Heisman! The speech!

And, finally, the most interesting man in college football is certainly one of the smartest.

H/T to David Alison, blogger, cyclist, Mac guy and rational Redskins fan, for doing the heavy lifting here.
