Robert Griffin III   #3 QB

Height: 6-2   Weight: 218   Age: 28

Born: 2/12/1990 Okinawa Japan

College: Baylor

Experience: 6th season

High School: Copperas Cove HS [TX]









Draft 2012

Pick No.2

Selected By: Washington Redskins

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 2 (2)

Pick Analysis: Many would argue that Griffin III is not only the most physically gifted quarterback in the 2012 draft, but also that he is the most talented player overall. His intangibles are making so many general managers swoon. Griffin, because of his athletic ability and Joe Montana-like ability to extend plays and remain focused on moving the ball downfield, not to mention his hurdling ability, could stand to be the better physical prospect than presumed No. 1 pick Andrew Luck. Nonetheless, RG3 likely will be a top-five pick.
