RG3 is a talented quarterback who was built for the position. Although he is slightly undersized, his athletic ability lends well to him being able to be an NFL-type quarterback who can make plays with his feet, extend plays, make the deep throw, and lead a team down the field. He has some of the same natural talents that Cam Newton had in the 2011 draft, sans the size. Griffin overcomes a slight size deficiency by simply being so athletic that defenders rarely get a shot on him. As a hurdler (out of high school) it is apparent that RG3 is extremely explosive. He drops back with absolute ease. He is able to feel comfortable enough in the pocket to step into a throw in traffic, or reset outside the pocket. At this point, unlike Luck, he can also move the ball downfield with his feet. While many would argue that RG3 might be an athlete playing quarterback, his senior year reaffirmed that he is simply an athletic quarterback, a guy who can make all the smart throws first, and create later if necessary.


RG3 has a slight size deficiency and could have some durability issues if he is hit enough times. He anticipates plays so well and is able to react to a point where he should be able to avoid big hits, even at the pro-level. His junior year was a test to see how well he could recover from a torn ACL in his sophomore year, and he came back just as strong. Some might worry that he will look to run first at the next level, but this could easily be curbed through coaching and a good support system on the offense. He truly had one strong season in college, but playing in a talented Big 12 conference and winning the Heisman likely puts a rest to those concerns, as well.
