With one week to go before the start of the 2012 NFL Draft, almost every possible angle has been taken with regards to Redskins mock drafts.

New Redskins defensive back Cedric Griffin has the unusual reputation as a hard-hitting cornerback and playmaker from his time in Minnesota.  Off the field, he’s a devoted husband and father, shoveling his own snow and running his own charitable foundation called “Stand Up For Kids.”
