Why, because Washington gave up twice as much as the Raiders? RG3 is talented but there's no such thing as a sure thing at QB. Look at how the Hershel Walker trade blew up on Minnesota, the failure of the Saints' Ricky Williams deal. Football is too much of a team game to be trading 3 firsts and a second for 1 first. You can easily miss on a "great" QB prospect, look at Jamarcus Russell, Ryan Leaf, Akili Smith, Tim Couch and so many others.
