The Big Blue View 2012 Community Mock Draft is really rolling now. Two picks out of the way, and with Robert Griffin III going to the Washington Redskins with the second pick, made by 'Woogie526,' we have thus far followed the obvious script.

No. 2 Washington Redskins -- Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

Why would we trade 2 first round picks and this year's 2nd round pick to move up 4 spots? One abbreviation: RG3! We have been floundering at quarterback for seemingly decades at this point. We needed to do something and this is it. Trading up to draft a 10k passer, in essentially 3.25 seasons, 66% competition percentage plus over 2,000 yards rushing, is a no brainer. Now Heisman winners are always hit or miss, but RG3 seems to be a class act, and worth the gamble.

As a Giants Fan: This worries me some, due to our historic difficulty defending against rushing quarterbacks, and now we have 4 division games a year against QB's that are a double threat. This is one of the biggest ways to negate our pass rush, and I really wanted anyone else to move up to draft RG3. -- Woogie526

'Tito' is now on the clock with the third pick for the Minnesota Vikings.
