31. Washington Redskins

The Redskins are in a never-ending cycle of trouble. They draft Robert Griffin III and he gets a major injury his rookie year. He seems to have never recovered properly and doesn’t play like the same quarterback.

They finally find a head coach in Jay Gruden and he apparently doesn’t mix well with the franchise quarterback the Redskins gave up their future for. This combination of issues puts the Redskins at 31. It’s bad enough they have issues on the field, but now they have them in the locker room as well.

There are rumors that the Redskins could possibly take Mariota with the fifth overall pick. While that would finally mark the end of the Robert Griffin III era, it may be the better choice at this point.

The quarterback issues are kind of riding the back burner, the Redskins main focus is defense. Going defense or quarterback in the draft would be a good choice for this franchise.
