Chick Hernandez of Comcast SportsNet is reporting that the Redskins’ offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan will be in Waco, Texas, the home of Baylor University and one Robert Griffin III, frequently between now and the NFL draft.
So it appears that class will be starting early for the Redskins’ presumed quarterback of the future.
The fact that Shanahan is spending time with Griffin indicates the level of confidence that the Redskins organization has that the Colts are going to take Andrew Luck with the first overall pick. Jim Irsay’s public Hamlet routine notwithstanding, if they believe that there was any chance that Indianapolis would pull a shocker and draft RG3, they would not be spending Kyle’s time and the resources to teach the offense to a possible future Colt.
The Redskins seem confident that RGIII will be their pick at #2, and if that comes to fruition, the time that Shanahan spends with his new QB should pay off this season.
