Robert Griffin III has officially declared his intention to forego his senior season at Baylor University to enter the 2012 NFL draft. This news isn't really a surprise, and now teams will be studying the young man's life and body of work as if he were attempting to become the next president of the United States of America.
There are four teams that should consider trading up in the draft with either the St. Louis Rams (second overall) or the Minnesota Vikings (third overall) with the intent of picking Griffin III.
The upcoming draft has become one of the thinnest in recent history at the quarterback position. Matt Barkley (USC) and Landry Jones (Oklahoma) were thought to be coming out, which excited a few teams, I'm sure, before they decided to stay with their respective schools for one more season.
This has put added pressure on the teams hoping to turn things around with the addition of a new quarterback. Instead of four potential first-round options teams are now down to only two.
This will be good news for the Rams or the Vikings, both of which could use the extra draft picks they could garner for their precious pick to continue rebuilding around Sam Bradford and Christian Ponder.
So, which teams should consider trading up for Griffin III?
