Surely the FO didn't operate in a vacuum and was well aware of this. LIkely, that's why we took that second CB also. Most important is putting Taylor in a circumstance with the potential to enhance his health, not diminish it.. and then set up regular monitoring protocols. If he fell out of the late first round strictly due to this medical concern, then if our medical staff can get him normalized, we've made a he3lluva pick. If not, then we swung and missed. Bracket that vs RG3, whose draft rights were acquired for a king's ransom, already with an injury and concussion history in the less competitive and violent NCAA. It was a calculated risk by Washington that has paid dividends the first year but also provided plenty of confirming cause for concern. In RG3's case: high risk high gain, in ours: medium risk/medium to high gain. In both cases: only time will tell.

(fine for RT17 but not when it comes to someone's HC and beloved QB)
