Eighty percent of Washington Redskins fans want the 2012 NFL Draft to start tomorrow because we can't wait another day to draft Robert Griffin III. Jon Gruden rides to the rescue with his one-on-one interview with RG3 on his QB Camp show on ESPN Monday night.If you missed it, you can catch it on YouTube and on ESPN replays. (hat tip to Redskins.com for pointing me there.)Gruden's QB Camps have been must-see TV since last year when pro football audiences got their first good look at Cam Newton unfiltered by silly Mel Kiper opinions. This show teases us with Griffin's abundant star quality and provides a taste of the coaching RG3 should expect at training camp. Griffin was in the DC area for a card and memorabilia show over the weekend. It is a virtual certainty that the Redskins will select him with their first-round pick. As if to make the point, the Redskins will open FedEx Field for a Draft Selection Day party Thursday evening, April 26. I won't be surprised if 50,000 fans show up...
