Former Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb says Robert Griffin III, expected to be chosen by the Redskins with the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft, won't be happy there.

"I say that because a lot of times ego gets too involved when it comes to being in Washington," McNabb said Thursday on ESPN's "First Take."

"Is it the spread offense that you try to continue to have flourish that he's been successful in? Or are you just going to have him in a foxhole with a makeshift offensive line, and you keep bringing in receivers," McNabb said. "What are we going to see? I don't think it's a great fit."

McNabb was traded by the Redskins after the 2010 season, where he passed for 14 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

"We hear so much about players," McNabb said. "The next year would be a lot better, give him a chance to learn the offense and understand what we do. I never got that chance in Washington. And a lot of people haven't. You're only as good as the guys around you, and also you have to be in a system that's catered to your ability."
