Washington is open to selecting a quarterback with the fifth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Robert Griffin III has already been named the starter for 2015 and he cost Washington multiple picks in 2012.
John Clayton reported earlier this offseason that Scot McCloughan would take Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota if he fell to No. 5. While Mariota might not get that far, McCloughan said his only goal is selecting the best player, regardless of position.
Washington also has Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy on their roster.
"No one will be handed a job from my standpoint," McCloughan said. "You have to earn it. That's what the NFL is about. I don't have any ties with any of the players. I didn't draft them. So I'm coming in -- prove it to me. Prove to me you deserve to be on the field. That's the way it should be in the NFL."
If Washington were to draft Mariota, a quarterback controversy would immediately emerge.
