Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III made official on Wednesday what had long been assumed by draftniks and drooling NFL executives.
He’s going pro.
“It was a tough decision, I love the people at this university, love my coach for giving me a chance to be a quarterback,” Griffin said.
The question now becomes where he will go in the draft. At this point, it’d be a big surprise if he slipped out of the top six picks. With St. Louis (No. 2) and Minnesota (No. 3) saying they are happy with their starting quarterbacks, the trade speculation this year figures to be off the charts.
