RG III comes in at 15th in our power rankings.
It's going to be a shock for some to see Robert Griffin III all the way down in the 15th spot. Yes, there is the issue of his recovery from knee surgery on his ACL and LCL, which can impact his mobility.
Knee issues aside, Griffin had some issues that showed inconsistency. Here's how. Griffin rang up 3200 passing yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions.
The numbers look good, but when you go deeper, something sticks out. He had two great games against Philadelphia and then Dallas on Thanksgiving (504 passing yards, 8 TDs, 1 INT).
But if you take those away, he never threw for more than two touchdowns in a game. He also broke the 250-yard barrier three times in the other games.
On the ground, RG III did his damage in the early season. He scored six rushing touchdowns in the first six games of the season and then was held out of the end zone until Week 17. That made his value drop a little bit as teams were able to be better prepared for him and keep him out of the end zone.
Add to his inconsistent play a potential sophomore slump and a shaky receiving corps (Pierre Garcon, Fred Davis, Donte Stallworth, Devery Henderson, et al.) and it all lands RG III in this spot.
Prediction: 3,058 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, 11 interceptions; 476 rushing yards, 5 touchdowns.
