08:04 AM ET 04.09 | Turns out the Redskins will be visiting Andrew Luck, after all. Do the Redskins believe that the Colts are going to pull the shocker and pull RG3 out from under them? Perhaps, but this seems to be more about due diligence than any hard intelligence the Redskins have gathered from the Indy camp. Simply put, the Redskins have to set aside the old adage and they must worry about things they can't control. ... Perhaps [Jim Irsay's] public indecisiveness is coming to an end. In any case, it has to end in 17 days when a name will have to be written on a card and turned in to Roger Goodell. While the chances are great that the Colts will write "Andrew Luck" on that card, the Redskins are preparing for the possibility that they don't.

"Due dilligence" is exactly the right phrase. At least have a talk with the guy so you have some idea who you're dealing with if the Colts do the unexpected.

Leave it to the Colts to pull something like this. They made some gosh-awful draft moves in the past when they used to stink. I'm still not sold on Robert Griffin. For a guy who was projected as a receiver just a year ago, I don't get the hype. He looks stiff and uncomfortable in the pocket, and the offense he ran in college was gimmickly. Usually that hurts your draft stock, but not for Robert Griffin.

Agreed. Even if we believe the Colts will take Luck, stranger things can happen. And, if they're not working some deal similar to a pre-draft agreement that has become so commonplace then you have to assume that nothing is guaranteed.

Either guy would work for D.C.

I agree, but nothing would surprise me, so I wouldn't bank on it.

I would hope they did their due dilligence before they paid the high price to move up to number two.

All the pressure is on Indianapolis. The Redskins will be taking whomever falls to them. I mean Washington didn't waste all those draft picks so they could draft a OT or RB. What would really be interesting is if either the Colts or Redskins were to ask Tannehill for a private meeting and workout.

Well said... although "interesting" is probably not the term I would use for a Tannehill visit.

I agree. Who'd have ever thought Peyton Manning would be working for John Elway?

If Indy is smart they will put out word that they are going to draft RGIII. Make the Redskins give them a 3rd rounder for not taking him, they'll fall for that trap, hahahahaha.

Amen brother. Griffen is a bust for sure. Not sure why the media loves to hype him up. He fumbled 10 times in his last 12 games, thats unbelievable he would be a #2 pick for that reason alone. More like a 7th round pick.
