The Redskins have traded into the number two spot of the upcoming NFL Draft, presumably to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. Should Washington pick him, Griffin will become the sixth quarterback in the Super Bowl era taken number two overall. The last QB selected number two was a man often referred to simply as “5”, Donovan McNabb, in 1999. Here’s a look back at McNabb, as well as the other quarterbacks whose company RGIII will likely soon be joining.
