When it comes to the best rookie in the NFL and arguably the best all-around player, Robert Griffin III takes the cake.
The No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft has set the football world on fire this season, starting with his spectacular Week 1 performance against the Saints.
In that game, RGIII threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns while showing off his impressive accuracy by completing 19 of his 26 passes (73.1 percent). He also showed us his revered quickness by adding 42 yards rushing as he lead his team to a 1-0 record. His huge game earned him NFC Offensive Player of the Week, the first time a player has ever won the award in their debut.
His second game performance against the Rams was equally impressive. Though they took the loss, the phenom gave the football world the latest trend in the posing saga: "Griffining."
The initial hype around RGIII eventually wore off, but his talent didn't.
Washington may be off to a 3-6 start, but for once, the quarterback isn't to blame.
Through the nine games, Griffin III has thrown for 1,993 yards with a 65.6 completion percentage and eight touchdowns.
What puts this rookie ahead of all of the rest is his dual-threat ability. Not only does he have a deadly throwing arm, he also is as quick as they come. In fact, he ran the third fastest 40-yard-dash at this year's combine with a 4.38.
For the year, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner has gained 529 yards on the ground while reaching the end zone six times (third best in the league). Each of those are NFL bests for quarterbacks.
Along with winning Rookie of the Week three times, Griffin III was also named the Offensive Rookie of the Month in September.
With Luck and Martin coming on strong and a whole season left to play, there's no telling who the NFL's top rookie will be at season's end. Right now, however, it's definitely the one and only RGIII.
