Who Needs Luck?

Robert_griffin_iii_medium A 6'2 or 6'3 graduated red-shirt Senior Quarterback from Baylor doesn't need Luck. He makes his own with his Brain, Arm and Feet in plays against solid teams. Robert Griffin III led Baylor in wins over TCU in 2011 and Texas in 2010. To date. Thirty-One starts with over 7,000 yards passing; 579 completions on 872 attempts equating to a 66% completion percentage. In the three games to date of 2011, Griffin has thrown 12 Incompletions and 13 Touchdowns! Currently Griffin is rated a top half of the 1st round pick prospect in the 2012 draft. He very well might challenge Oliver Luck for discussion as the overall #1 pick come April. What do others say about his game?


 Griffin is very accurate. He displays an unteachable accuracy when throwing on the run, and he has great footwork in the pocket, displaying a natural roll step throwing to outside receivers. He is often a bit too willing to roll out and leave the pocket, but he adjusts his feet to the receiver beautifully whenever he is in the pocket. He has a functional release, and does a good job of not opening his hips up too much on his follow through, helping him get a good spiral on all of his passes. He also makes sure never to throw across his body.

Griffin is a good decision maker. One of his most underrated qualities is his ability to not lock onto receivers, which makes it really hard for defensive backs to read his eyes and jump his passes. He is extremely willing to look at his second and third reads, partially because he feels so comfortable adjusting his feet toward their position on the field. Link

Baylor (3-0) scored five of their eight touchdowns in the first half and outgained Rice by 251 yards of offense. Griffin, who completed 87 percent of his throws, looked decisive with his delivery, going through multiple progressions while averaging 10.8 yards per attempt. Through the first four weeks, his resume features 981 passing yards, 15 all-purpose touchdowns, 218 rushing yards, and a 13:0 TD-INT ratio. Link
