Luxury home choices for NFL top draft picks
Norfolk, VA (April 27, 2012) – Yesterday, the NFL draft turned hard-working college players into brand new NFL rookies. Players like Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III have worked hard to achieve this goal, and their lives are now changed forever as official members of the NFL. Leading consumer destination site Homes.com is eager to assist these NFL newbies with the daunting task of searching for a new place to call home.
For most of these players, entrance into the fast-paced, high-energy world of the NFL happens quickly with little time to catch their breath. Details like where they will live sometimes sit on the back burner while they immerse themselves in their new team’s playbook, practices and meetings. Homes.com has the perfect solution to their house-hunting woes.

Andrew Luck, the #1 overall pick from Stanford, can choose from several stunners listed on Homes.com in his new hometown of Indianapolis. Some options include a four bedroom, four and a half bathroom beauty on Copley Drive in the prestigious Cedar Knolls neighborhood. For slightly more than $700,000, this gorgeous home comes equipped with everything you’d expect an NFL player to have, including a pool, ample living space and a finished basement. He could also select a $700,000 condo on North Park Avenue, featuring three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and a rooftop deck with a wet bar and panoramic city views.
Robert Griffin III, selected second overall by the Redskins, is used to moving. Born to Army sergeant parents, he’s lived in Japan, New Orleans and Texas. This time, the move will be a little different and comes with a brand new dream job. Redskins newbie RGIII will have the freedom to choose from a variety of neighborhoods in DC’s metro area, affectionately dubbed the D.M.V.
Griffin’s options include a $600,000 beauty on Kuoros Court in Ashburn, Va. close to the Redskins practice facility. The gorgeous home features four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a media room complete with projector and screen, and a large finished deck perfect for entertaining. Another choice for Griffin is a stunner on Leah May Court (also in Ashburn) with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a finished basement ideal for a mega game room, and a fenced backyard on a cul-de-sac.
