RG3 texts Redskins coach to pick Baylor player in draft
MAY 13, 2014 2:55p ET
The Washington Redskins are getting more help from one of college football's most explosive offenses.
But this was no coincidence.
Griffin made sure Seastrunk was in his team's decision-making during the draft.
"Yeah, he was texting during the draft," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden told Comcast SportsNet. "I was trying to ignore my phone. He's a big fan of Lache and they're obviously good friends and has a lot of good things to say about him. So, I know Robert's happy and we're happy to have Lache."
Griffin and Seastrunk never played alongside each other at Baylor, but both made big impacts in coach Art Briles' high-scoring offense. Griffin entered the NFL after winning the Heisman Trophy in 2011, and Seastrunk transferred to Baylor from Oregon the following season.
Seastrunk rushed for 2,189 yards and 18 touchdowns in his two seasons in Waco, Texas.
