Another no-brainer. Robert Griffin won the Heisman Trophy for a reason.
That reason: 72.4 percent completion rate, 4,293 passing yards, 37 touchdowns, six interceptions and an additional 699 rushing yards with 10 touchdowns.
You read that stat line correctly—he outperformed Andrew Luck in every single statistical category. He's also apparently very smart, and was considering staying at Baylor to finish his first year of law school. So why is he the second ranked prospect?
Well, first of all, he comes from a spread system, while Luck ran a pro style offense, and spread system quarterbacks tend to have a learning curve.
Second of all, he's smaller than Luck, at only 6'2" and 220 lbs. He's the same size as Aaron Rodgers, but smaller than is ideal.
Lastly, he had one phenomenal year, while Andrew Luck had two. Don't let that fool you though; he's no flash in the pan. In 2010, he completed 67 percent of his passes for 3,500 yards, which is still great, just not as great as Luck's two seasons.
Any other year, probably even including 2011, Griffin would be the top-ranked quarterback prospect, just not this year.
