Prospect of The Week: Robert Griffin III
The combine has passed and the numbers are in. As a QB Robert Griffin, III was the best at the 40 yard dash this year at the combine in Indianapolis. Does that change the minds of scouts on picking Griffin before Luck? Only time will tell whether the NFL prospect will go before Luck and be the top QB picked in the draft.
Robert Griffin, III
40 Time: 4.41
The teams in need of a QB have not changed, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, and the Seattle Seahawks. Luck although still projected to be picked before him, Griffin has a chance for a close second looking at his performance during the combine. During his Heisman year at Baylor University Griffin completed 291 passes with 402 attempts for 4,293 yards. Griffin has what it takes to survive in the NFL and to bring any team back to its glory days. Primarily, Griffin has no apparent weaknesses and with a strong receiving core around him he can surely be a force to reckoned with. His ability and accuracy are in comparison to last season’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, Cam Newton.
