With the second pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III. Griffin is the No. 2 quarterback in this draft class, behind only No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck, according to most rankings (including Mocking the Draft's).
Griffin is one of the supreme athletes in this draft and should be an impact quarterback, as Mocking the Draft writes, but there is a downside that comes with Griffin's ability:
Griffin has a great arm and delivers passes to all parts of the field. Like most current college systems, Baylor's offense called for Griffin to take a play and go with it. There wasn't a lot of audibles or pre-snap adjustments. Griffin knew where he wanted to throw the ball and did so. If he didn't, he was allowed to pull the ball and make plays with his feet.
One of the knocks you'll often read about Griffin is about his size — listed at 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds. That's a similar size to Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, but he doesn't take hits like Griffin does. Because of that, you'll always wonder about Griffin's long-term health.
