Contrary to what weve heard, Robert Griffin III has not been memorizing the Redskins playbook. Instead, it appears that Kyle Shanahan has been meeting with Griffin in the same way that Jon Gruden visits with QBs coming into the draft in his Quarterback Camp series on ESPN.Im not that deep into the playbook, Griffin told Chick Hernandez in an exclusive interview broadcast on Comcast SportsNet. Its just an evaluation period to see how fast I learn what I can learn, and then can I go on the board, draw it up and teach it to them.The interview was taped before todays multiple reports that the Colts have informed Andrew Luck that they will take him with the first pick in the draft. Just like most observers, Griffin had a strong feeling that would be the case and that he would go to Washington. Griffin pulled out a movie reference in talking about being picked second in the draft. Its not like a 'Ricky Bobby' story, If youre not first, youre last,' Griffin said. You can be second and you can continue to move up.
