Draft RGIII, bring in a vet (Grossman, Orton, Leinart, I don't really care), and then draft Wilson, but only if he's there in the 6th or later.
Don't draft a QB in the first 5 rounds. We need those picks for players. The sanction has basically made it a necessity that we find solid depth or if possible, mid-season starter talent as late in the draft as possible.
I need 200 million and I doubt I will ever get it. I am glad we are getting one good one. What is the point of drafting two and we still have the guy we drafted last year.

I like Grossman as the back up and only as the back up. He should definitely be able to help RGIII learn the ropes. And wouldn't you rather have a guy who HAS won SOME games with the Skins to come in a game should RGIII get hurt. Beck on the other hand is a waste of space and I would love to see him go; however, he is on contract so that might just be flushing more cap $ down the drain when we don't need to. As mentioned above we have a developmental QB, Jonathan Crompton, on the practice squad. Maybe he is the next Flynn. I wouldn't want to use up a draft pick just for the sake of it.
Perhaps if late round BPA is a QB we do it... other than that doing anything else with the QB depth apart from cutting Beck and/or replacing with an undrafted free agent seems a waste of our resources.

As others have mentioned, I bet we bring Beck back because it makes the most financial sense -- something we need to take into account because of the NFL ruling.
Beck says all the right things, but it's clear he has no confidence in his downfield accuracy -- watching him check down to running backs and tight ends while RG3 airs it out...
I think we would be an entirely different team with anyone under center other than RG3, but with Beck it will be a night and day difference.
I would eat Beck's deal and bring back Rex as the backup, who is at least aggressive and has shown he can win games in the NFL.
I imagine Leinart will be a name tossed around by some, but the Shanahans like aggressive QBS -- Leinart is the checkdown king. Like Beck, he just doesn't trust his downfield accuracy.

Why not three?
As much as I don't like to admit it, Grossman is a perfectly serviceable backup.
In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness. ~RGIII~
Team has allot of holes this year. I personally don't think taking 2 rookie QB's this year is wise. Take one next year and bring in a low cost vet and have him battle Beck for the #2 spot.
I might take a flier in the 6th or 7th round. Someone who has some really impressive quality, but was deemed too short, too slow of foot, something and made him drop. Before that, because we don't have a 2nd, I'd want to focus on other areas, but I really don't mind of we go BPA throughout the draft.
Kyle Orton has signed with the pokes. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...th-kyle-orton/
now that we are purely back up and teacher mentality for QB..
Chad Pennington, Jake Delhomme, Charlie Batch or Rex..
Rex knows the offense.. Charlie might come cheapest..
Maybe you sign an UDFA rookie QB and bring him in. Otherwise, go with Grossman and - I don't know - a hyper religious born again Christian type for the third string job. I'm sure there's a few of them floating around the league.
Personally, I would like Rex as the back-up and a cheap young vet who could be grromed to be the number 2. Max Hall comes to mind. Some potential, some experience, won't cost anything, would have no business complaining about being number 3....
