NFL draft: Robert Griffin III selected second by the Redskins

April 26, 2012|By Sam Farmer

2. Washington Redskins: QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor – Jim Harbaugh recruited both Griffin and Andrew Luck to Stanford. Griffin declined the scholarship offer because he reasoned there would be a logjam at quarterback. He is the only player from Baylor to win the Heisman Trophy. As a high school track star in Texas, he broke state records in both the 110- and 300-meter hurdles.

Comment: The Redskins run a bootleg offense –- roll right, roll left –- and Mike Shanahan says Griffin is the best he’s coached at doing that since Steve Young.
