We don’t get any one-on-one time with Robert Griffin III so it’s sometimes hard to ask him specific questions about plays. But the one I’d ask him about was Tuesday was a crossing route in which corner DeAngelo Hall was on the outside hip of Santana Moss. So Griffin threw to Moss’ inside, taking him away from the pressure and leading him into a wide open path. Hall slipped and Moss took the ball and ran into the end zone.

What has Griffin shown you since he’s come to town? "I’ve seen everything," he said. "He’s humble. He’s poised. He’s willing to learn. All they’ve got to do is tell him something once and he remembers it. He’s like a sponge. He’s soaking up everything that he thinks he needs to get better and he works his butt off. I have nothing but good things to say about him and I’m looking forward to the season."

The Redskins Blog | Fred Davis Ranked No. 5 Future Tight End
"…you could argue that right now, he is Washington’s best weapon in the passing game. And now the Redskins should be vastly improved at the quarterback position — especially when projecting this passing attack in 2015. Davis has five years of NFL experience, but won’t turn 27 years old until January. He is a field-stretcher and an exceptional athlete and, even in 2015, should be able to create mismatches in the passing game with that skill set."

What Redskins Starter Would Get Picked Last In Gym Class? | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
For a fun little offseason exercise I thought it would be interesting to look at the order the Redskins 22 projected starters would be selected in an expansion draft. Now the rules for this draft are simple as you are starting from scratch to build your team, so money is no object. Factor in positional value (i.e. OLB is more valuable than DE) as well as age (note: since the Redskins will use a 3rd WR more than a FB, three will be listed as starters). Now since I’m imagining that Robert Griffin will be everyone’s top pick the question is how will you order the 21 remaining starters?

Redskins minicamp: RG3 speaks - NFC East Blog - ESPN
"You kind of know which guys are good at which routes. Of course, they're all good at all of them and they're all always open. But as a quarterback, you can kind of pick out and see what guys can really do great things. Pierre [Garcon] had a great catch today, just showing that skill he has.
"You know, we’re not even going to try to have [Leonard Hankerson] go full speed until we get back in July. He’s doing drill work with us. You can see he’s not full speed, but the hip is healed, so he has to get back in football shape. I’d rather wait and err on the side of precaution. Just keep on running him, getting him in shape, so we don’t send him back. So once we get to late July, he’s ready to go full speed."
The Redskins held the first practice of their three-day minicamp on Tuesday. Once again, they were able to take advantage of the presence of their new indoor field as the rainy conditions would have either cancelled or severely curtailed their activities.
