If I'm an NFL team, I go to Griffin and say:
Kid, we wantcha to be a CB and Special Teams Stud.If that fails, S and Special Teams Stud.If that fails: WR and Special Teams Stud.If that fails: 3rd down RB and Special Teams Stud.If that fails: bulk up and be a LB and Special Teams Stud.If that fails: bulk up more and be a TE and Special Teams Stud.If that fails: debulk and be a QB and Special Teams Stud.If that fails: Special Teams Stud.If that fails: Long Snapper.If that fails: Assistant Coach.No matter what, we wantcha in our organization for the next 15 years.
I don't discount his NFL QB possibilities: he might become fantastic; I can envision him being better than another fast QB: Vince Young. I just hate to see his size and speed and agility wasted at QB. I yearn to see a big and rangy CB dominate and terrorize the NFL. Robert Griffin III could be that CB.
However, it's also conceivable he could be the #1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft as a QB. He's a smart kid who obviously loves to play, and there's really no ceiling on his upside. He could become a Steve Young type of offensive force.
Robert Griffin III highlights. He basically has a half step advantage on every player on the field. On many plays, as against Texas at 5:00 mark of video, he seems to run only as fast as he thinks is necessary for the moment. When he senses he needs to run faster, he kicks it up a notch.
The first highlights are of when he entered - as a true freshman - midway through a blow out opening game loss to Wake Forest.
His pass against Connecticut, at 7:30 of the video, is the type route Griffin gets to read and throw to for four years in the Baylor offense; and is the type route Vince Young rarely got to read or throw to in his three years at Texas. When Griffin III leaves Waco for the NFL, he will be more developed as a QB than Vince Young was when he left Austin; and approx. as developed as Kevin Kolb when he left Houston.
