What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about ROBERT GRIFFIN
III: Baylor, 6023 223 4.41.
Junior entry. Three-year starter who is a world class track athlete and a
polished passer. As in most spread offensive schemes, he throws several
horizontal routes, quick hitches, bubble screens, slants, and out cuts. He does,
however, throw vertical routes with good timing and accuracy. Drops the ball in
the well. Griffin doesn’t hang the ball or throw it up for grabs. Has book and
football intelligence. Throws a consistent spiral with a quick 3/ 4 arm release.
No hesitation on his delivery or release. Sudden to catch and release the ball
from a shotgun snap. Is the master of an up-tempo offense. Quick to read and
react to what he sees defensively. Also runs the read option to keep pressure
off the passing game. Explosive and disciplined in his play. Consistent and
confident to drive the ball down the field and outside the numbers. Completed
72.4% of his passes in 2011. Rare movement skills. Quick feet to sidestep and
avoid a rush. Has the ability to make plays on the move right or left, but
favors rolling to his right. He can escape with suddenness. Resets his body and
feet with balance to make a quick and accurate throw. Creates and extends plays.
Offensive coordinator may choose to tailor their offense to Griffin’s skill set.
A smooth and effortless athlete with good field awareness. He can hit a target
at full speed with anticipation, good timing, and ball placement. Will tunnel in
on first receiver at times and get away with it as spread out as defenses are in
college. Exploits the cavities in a defense. As a runner he has vision, feel,
and elusiveness. A natural runner who is dangerous and slippery in the open
field. Durability is a question mark with a torn right ACL in 2009 and a
concussion suffered in Texas Tech game in 2011, missing the 2nd half of the
game. Bottom line – he doesn’t panic, is determined to stay in the pocket, and
can take a hit. Outstanding production. 2011 stats: 291/402, 4293 passing yds,
72.4%, 37 TDs, 6 INTs. OSR:1/15. First round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 1/2, SS-DNP,
