Robert Griffin III Ready To 'Inspire Teams And Motivate A Fan Base'

Robert Griffin III is poised to be the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Mainly, that's because of the numbers he posted at Baylor University, such as is 37 touchdowns and nearly 4,300 passing yards he posted during his senior year. In a conversation with New York's WFAN, he pointed out that it's not just his athletic ability that makes him attractive to NFL teams (via Sports Radio Interviews):

"There’s a lot of things. Everybody is going to say hard work and leadership but I think ability to inspire teams and motivate a fan base is what helped me at Baylor University. My teammates believed every time we stepped on the field we would win the game. On offense or on defense, no matter what on defense they’re not going to score and if they do our offense is going to make up for it. On offense we knew we could score every time we got on the field. I’m just excited about bringing that aspect to a team along with my hard work and leadership."

Of course, that ability to inspire is based on a lot more than his mental makeup. Griffin helped take the Bears from 4-8 his freshman year to a 10-3 record in 2011 that saw them win the Alamo Bowl and finish ranked No. 13 in the final AP Poll.
