The reigning Heisman Trophy winner boosted his draft stock immensely in 2011, passing for nearly 4,300 yards and owned a touchdown-to-interception ratio of over 6 to 1.
The senior led his Baylor Bears to a 10-win season and their first bowl victory since 1994 (over Washington in the Alamo Bowl).
His numbers were beyond impressive, and Griffin has a great chance at succeeding at the next level. But there are some causes for concern as well.
He has a small frame at 6'2'', 220 pounds and his health in the long-run could be an issue. While Griffin has plenty of speed and athleticism to escape the pocket, he's bound to suffer some big hits eventually.
Being a quarterback, Griffin will be heavily praised and/or criticized, and small mistakes may be blown out of proportion.
He's an excellent runner and defenses will have to game-plan for every facet of his abilities. Scrambling QBs like Griffin traditionally haven't fared terribly well in the NFL, but the world saw a change last season when Tim Tebow and Cam Newton were all over the highlights.
RG3 has potential to star in the NFL, but at the same time he's a slight risk as a top-five pick.
