NFL Combine 2012: Watch Baylor's Robert Griffin III Run the 40-Yard Dash in 4.38
Still, he's fast.
He ran a sub-4.4 in the 40-yard dash at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, which means his hype will only continue to grow. Unofficially, the clocks had him at 4.38 on his second attempt.
Senior NFL Editor for Rotoworld, Evan Silva, is reporting about the star’s first impressive time and his even more impressive second run:
QB Robert Griffin III's 2nd 40-yard dash attempt: 4.38. His first was 4.41.
No matter what anyone says, a quarterback running that fast is impressive--too bad the rest of Griffin's game isn’t quite as awe-inspiring.
While there are serious questions about his ability to play quarterback at an elite level in the NFL, scouts can’t deny the pure speed the kid has. If and when he fails as a starting quarterback in the NFL, at least whatever team that drafts him will be able to run a nice spread-option offense like the Denver Broncos did with Tim Tebow.
Though the 40-yard dash is a mostly irrelevant drill for a quarterback, Griffin's fast time may be the final straw that makes whatever team that wants him most trade up to No. 2 and take him right after the Indianapolis Colts select Andrew Luck.
I see a team like Cleveland jumping up to the St. Louis Rams’ spot at No. 2 and selecting RGIII, since they have a history of bad moves in the draft. With that selection, the duo of Colt McCoy and Robert Griffin III will have little to no success behind a porous offensive line.
After all of the hype leading into this combine and the increased talk about RGIII’s speed, fans and scouts alike are losing sight of the truth. Robert Griffin is a great college quarterback, but he won’t be a star in the NFL.
