We've known for a while that Robert Griffin III is good at talking: the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner gave one of the best acceptance speeches in the award's history, and was charming and hilarious in talking to Dan Rubenstein at the EA Sports NCAA Football 13 Preview Party and throwing shade John Brantley's way. But, as it turns out, RG3 might be even better when he's the one holding the mic.
Griffin talked to Alshon Jeffery of the Chicago Bears and Jarius Wright of the Minnesota Vikings at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere, and basically did the whole interviewing thing as well as he appears to do everything. Griffin put on the fake announcer voice, plugged his Adidas connection while talking about the NFL's new Nike jerseys, got Wright to admit that going from being the SEC's leading receiver in 2011 to being picked in the fourth round felt like a downgrade, and poked fun at Jeffery's lack of production ... and gut.
I'm sure Rubenstein and the rest of the folks at SBN Studios are happy that Griffin's more into football (and Dan Snyder's zeroes, his jokes about being "still broke" aside) than talking about it, because those suckers would probably be out of work in a heartbeat if RG3 wanted to do more than cameo on our team. (I love you, Dan.)
