Scouting Report
After Andrew Luck, Griffin is the most sought after prospect in the draft, and the Washington Redskins paid a heavy price to get into position to take the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. In search of a franchise quarterback to turn around the struggling club, the Redskins sent the sixth overall pick and their second-round selection in this draft and first-rounders in 2013 and 2014 to St. Louis for the No. 2 pick, where they are expected to select Griffin. Some consider him the best player available, capable of being a star at the next level. Griffin's collegiate career is full of highlight reel plays and eye-popping stats, including 78 touchdown passes to just 17 interceptions.. He threw for 4,293 yards, 37 touchdowns and six INTs with a 72.4 completion rate this season and added 699 rushing yards with 10 scores. His career passer rating for Baylor was 158.9, and he turned in a career-high 189.5 last year, ranking second to Wisconsin's Russell Wilson (191.8) in the country. Griffin, who played only three games in 2009 due to a torn ACL, has all the tools to be an elite quarterback, but his size is a minor concern. He makes good decisions in the pocket and has a strong, accurate arm to go with his playmaking ability on the run. Griffin further impressed teams at the NFL scouting combine - his 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds and 39-inch vertical leap were tops among quarterbacks and his 10-foot broad jump was good for third at the position. He was a high school hurdler, which explains his impressive leaping ability. Teams view Griffin's attitude and leadership abilities as positives, and they are two traits he'll need to rely on heavily in dealing with the massive expectations expected to come with being selected by the Redskins.
