NFL Draft: About The Time Of Year To Start Tearing Them Down

New, comments

We're a week away from the 2012 NFL draft which means we're going to start seeing some unusual news. Things we thought we knew, we really don't know. The latest example of this comes from Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, a well respected reporter who quotes several scouts who say, despite all the great things people say about Robert Griffin III, he's actually not that good and sort of a jerk.

"He has better arm action and is more accurate with his deep ball, but he's not as good as Cam Newton," a fourth scout said. "As much as is written about his athleticism, his athleticism under duress in the pocket isn't even close to Cam Newton's. This guy, the only way he gets big plays with his feet is if he's got a wide-open field and the sea opens for him. He's got a little bit of a selfish streak, too. Everybody was laying on Cam, but for some reason this guy has become gloves off. He doesn't treat anybody good."

Very strange that, after several months and thousands of things written about RGIII, we're just now finding out that he has an apparent "selfish streak".

Not saying it is or isn't true. Just saying beware of reports that come out the week of the draft.
