After Pro Day, Jaws predicts Griffin will be a “superstar” in NFL

Robert Griffin III AP

Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III’s Pro Day flew under the radar amid a flurry of big Wednesday NFL news. The New Orleans Saints’ football organization was leveled by league-imposed discipline, and Tim Tebow was (nearly) traded to the Jets.

But when a tree falls in the forest, it does make a sound. Even if nobody hears it.

Griffin made 51 throws at the Pro Day, and NFL.com’s Gil Brandt counted just two as uncatchable. “His arm strength is very, very good,” wrote Brandt. “He threw the ball with ease 60 yards downfield. … Griffin has excellent feet, and he’s equally good going to his right or his left.

“… I’m not sure whether he or Andrew Luck should be the No. 1 overall draft pick.”

ESPN’s Ron Jaworski is especially high on Griffin’s NFL prospects, and Jaws was also in attendance at the Baylor workout.

“The throws he made were all bona fide NFL-type throws,” Jaworski said, per the Associated Press. “He’s going to be a superstar at the next level. He put on a clinical exhibition here today. That Redskins contingency left here all with big smiles on their faces.”

Pro Day workouts shouldn’t have a major influence on draft stock, but Griffin’s game tape is also No. 1 overall pick-caliber. At least Merril Hoge says it is.

    can we save all these “predictions” , and repost them 3 years from now.

  2. bovice23 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:22 PM

    The same thing was said about Jamarcus Russell after his pro day. I don’t care how a guy throws with no defenders on the field

  3. steelerhypocrite says: Mar 21, 2012 7:22 PM

    Well, now the Foreskins have no excuses when they finish 4-12 (on average) for the next decade…

  4. waitingguilty says: Mar 21, 2012 7:22 PM

    I watched the pro day….he threw over 80 (Not 60) passes…had at least 4 dropped and the 2 uncatchables sounds about right

  5. doresb21 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:22 PM

    RG Leaf

  6. ericjshelton says: Mar 21, 2012 7:23 PM

    Tebow is superstar in the nfl, but will RG3 be a good qb? Or another vick?

  7. thatdudewiththemarauder says: Mar 21, 2012 7:23 PM

    Already got my Griffin III Jersey!!! Hopefully I will not have to tape over Griffin III with Luck. As a Skins fan, I would not care who they choose, but I would really like RG3!! HTTR!!!

  8. reppster says: Mar 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    Could be the next Vick or the next Vince Young…both who have zero rings.

  9. wildbillesq says: Mar 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    I’d take Griffin over Luck. However, I think they are both can’t miss prospects. Any team will be lucky to have either player.

  10. dachozen1 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    People are buying into the names and not what they see. This guy didnt win Heisman for nothing. %70 completion, wow!

  11. tebowmagic says: Mar 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    Ya but he’s going to the Redskins

  12. tommyf15 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    I agree that Griffin has superstar potential, and the Redskins made a great trade to move up to get him.

  13. skinsrollyou says: Mar 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    Could he bring more superbowl trophies to the NFC east? I dunno, but I do know that with 12 in the division, the eagles have none. Hahahahaha

  14. jetslag44years says: Mar 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    Oh No Jaws! Don’t go in the water

  16. phinfan says: Mar 21, 2012 7:25 PM

    JAWS… said Chad Henne was going to be the starter of Miami for years to come. How did that work out?

  17. tennesseeoilers says: Mar 21, 2012 7:25 PM

    Given the insane offseason we’re having doesn’t it only make sense that RGIII would be the Colts’ stunning No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL draft? After trading the farm, here’s hoping Danny Boy Snyder and Shanahan like Andrew Luck.

  18. bagadeez04 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:25 PM

    It’s hard to make all these great thrown on injured reserve :-(

  19. moelester says: Mar 21, 2012 7:26 PM

    Lets all make a pact to completely ignore Merril Hoge as if he doesn’t exist. Thumbs up if you feel Merril Hoge has no merit to ever give his assessment of football publicly again. Thumbs down if you think he offers legitimate insight.
    Get your popcorn ready Merril

  20. khuxford says: Mar 21, 2012 7:27 PM

    I would love to see RGIII go to the Colts and the Redskins get Luck.

  21. tacoslinger619 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:27 PM

    Just imagine the hype if RGIII was white and had the exposure that Luck got early on……He’s the real deal, the colts should give it some serious thought!

  22. blaz0037 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:29 PM

    lol.

  23. dryzzt23 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:30 PM

    RG3 is a Republican, so I am rooting for him whether he goes at 1 or 2.

    IMO, the Colts would be smart to take the sure thing in Andrew Luck. It is akin to the Manning v Leaf debate. One is the cerebral efficient QB where the other has all the physical tools.

    The Big 12 doesn’t play DEF so RG3 could be an Akili Smith in sheeps clothing. Do you take that risk if you are the Colts sans Manning?

    No, you hold your cards and take Luck.

  24. bearsstillsuck says: Mar 21, 2012 7:30 PM

    I really hope the colts take him, just to screw with the redskins.

  25. lakermetskins says: Mar 21, 2012 7:32 PM

    He would be the biggest bust of all time if he does’nt work out with the skins. But I can’t see him missing stardom. He is one of THE most impressive football players I’ve seen: On film, on the field, in workouts, interviews, classroom, work ethic, ect. How can this guy fail, other than injury?

  26. cardmagnet says: Mar 21, 2012 7:32 PM

    1. Did it really take until a pro day to see how talented RGIII is? The kid has incredible skill and athletic ability.

    2. He will be playing for Shanahan and Son. He has to overcome that hurdle. They’re not exactly the best coaching tandem in the NFL…and that’s being extremely polite about it.

    3. Wait, why is Jaworski’s opinon worthy of its own headline? Lol

  27. seanmmartin says: Mar 21, 2012 7:32 PM

    Imagine if his pro day sucked… The Redskins would be looking to trade down.

  28. flavordave says: Mar 21, 2012 7:33 PM

    Spend 20 seconds listening to RG3 talk and youll know he at least has his head screwed on right. Seems like a great kid and although Im an Eagles fan Ill be looking forward to watching him play.

  29. steelernationsparksjealousy says: Mar 21, 2012 7:33 PM

    The Steelers don’t want or need him. We’ll win the 7th and start our own league where we might see some real competition.

    Russell wows scouts at LSU’s pro day

    BATON ROUGE — Quarterback JaMarcus Russell was the center of attention Wednesday as throngs of NFL coaches, executives and personnel directors crowded the LSU indoor practice facility to dissect the abilities of the draft-eligible Tigers on Pro Day.
    One coach in particular — new Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin — could not take his eyes off the 6-foot-6, 256-pound Russell.

    “Obviously, I’m very impressed,” Kiffin said. “We were very impressed. He had a great day. He seems very first class, very easy to get along with. No doubt he was a great leader here. That’s why everybody wants him now.”

    Russell, who left LSU a year early, is projected by many analysts as the first player picked in the NFL draft on April 28. The Raiders have the first pick.

  31. karlpilkington says: Mar 21, 2012 7:35 PM

    God some people get so angry that the skins could get this guy. Makes me laugh. hTTr!

  32. burgandyandgoldfan says: Mar 21, 2012 7:35 PM

    I hope Indy was not watching :/

    HTTR

  33. rickastleydancemoves says: Mar 21, 2012 7:36 PM

    Don’t lie people. How many of you don’t like him solely because of skin color?

  34. sackbombs says: Mar 21, 2012 7:39 PM

    Its really surprising how everyone only compares griffin to vick. Do you just not know anything about him at all? The guy is extremely intelligent and a model citizen. His best attribute is his arm, not his legs. Im white but i have to agree. If griffin was white he’d get twice the respect

  35. andyreidisfat says: Mar 21, 2012 7:39 PM

    I’m sorry but anyone who things rg3 is better than luck is doing nothing more than drinking the hype cool aide.

    I like griffin, I think he can be a good player, but I also thought David Carr had all the tools as well. Carr got the crap beat out of him because he started for an expansion team. Truth be told the redskins are as good ad an expansion team. They have mediocre talent on offense and a worse oline that won’t get much better. Add to that they traded 2 more firsts in the next two years and their owners in ability not to sign bad contracts, not to mention the teams in ability to listen to what they are told will limit their ability to sign more talent with all the cap hits they have.

    Rg3 might be one of the most talented players in years, he might also just get “carred” right out of the league. Especially considering the division that includes perhaps the two best dlines at getting to the qb and d ware.

    I would get to caught in the hype redskins fans just yet

    RG3 is a joke and will be the next bust.

  39. lakermetskins says: Mar 21, 2012 7:42 PM

    Jamarcus had no intangibles, was lazy, had no charisma, and wasn’t getting his masters degree in 4 years. If RG3 is a bust, you CAN’T blame the redskins for trying.

  40. harperquinn says: Mar 21, 2012 7:45 PM

    Looking at recent QB busts, a lot of them were lazy, arrogant, or were headcases. There haven’t been any signs of that with RGIII. At the very least, this kid should end up being a good quarterback even if he doesn’t end up elite.

  41. stevenreichert says: Mar 21, 2012 7:45 PM

    Hmmm. Luck or RGIII?

  42. LoCoSu@%s says: Mar 21, 2012 7:46 PM

    Jaws may be trying to one-up Warren Moon.
    But sorry, Griffin is more of a sure prospect than Cam Newton was.

  43. emaimo80 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:46 PM

    Redskins = stuck with luck!

  44. Deb says: Mar 21, 2012 7:47 PM

    RG Leaf??? Another Vick???? Based on what???? This kid is a straight arrow from a military family who has already finished his bachelor’s and almost finished his law degree. He’s hardly another egomaniacal troublemaker like Leaf or Vick were when they came into the league. Come on!

    I hope he becomes a Superstar!

  45. mrbigass says: Mar 21, 2012 7:48 PM

    Little Shanny will ruin him. You read it here first…..

  46. jh500 says: Mar 21, 2012 7:48 PM

  53. marzxyz says: Mar 21, 2012 7:55 PM

    Let’s get real. One never knows for sure how ANY draft pick will turn out. Ryan Leaf was the 2nd pick in the NFL draft too. JaMarcus Russell was the No. 1 pick a few years ago and he did not make it. And, lest we forget, Tom Brady was picked in the 6th round.

  54. lakermetskins says: Mar 21, 2012 7:58 PM

    I see people posting that RG3 will be a bust but no one offers any explanation why?!

    Oh, he’ll play for the redskins so he must suck….Excuse me but we do have 12 or so hall of famers.

    Oh, he’ll get hurt…Pleeeze, it’s football.

    Can someone offer one tangible reason why RG3 will fail? Drugs, alcohol, not intelligent, he’s black….Anybody?

  55. karlpilkington says: Mar 21, 2012 8:00 PM

    Andyreidisfat. Spell check please… Cool aide? Seriously? How do you expect anyone to agree or disagree with you when they can not understand your cryptic language.

  56. trbowman says: Mar 21, 2012 8:05 PM

    Seriously, don’t read too much into pro days. All about film.

    Reading too much into how a guy looks in shorts is how a guy like Blaine Gabbert goes in the top ten.

    Funny, I remember Brandt saying he’d take Gabbert over Newton first overall after Gabbert’s pro day.

  57. mrslay1 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:08 PM

    Well if Mule Hoge says it you can count on it being wrong! I predict this time next year we will have already got tired of talking about what a flop he was.

  58. dkrause71 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:10 PM

    Just imagine the hype if RGIII was white and had the exposure that Luck got early on……He’s the real deal, the colts should give it some serious thought!
    ===============================

    I don’t see this at all. In my opinion Griffin is getting all the hype. I really do not hear much about Luck at all right now. Its Griffin ran this. Griffin wants to go #1, etc, etc. Now if you want to state Griffin might not be getting the respect he deserves, that is one thing. But hype, this guy is getting that in big-time.

  59. autumnwind999 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:13 PM

    Not that sold on RGIII. Not quite the athlete Vick is. Doesn’t strike me as a crisp, in command passer like Luck, Manning, Brees or Newton.

    Seems like a good kid and obviously has some ability, but I would be really surprised if he ever rises to the top tier of NFL QBs. Would be less surprised if he’s a bust, but figure he’ll wind up somewhere in the middle of the pack.

  60. autumnwind999 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:16 PM

    Luck > Griffin. Absolutely no doubt.

  61. taintedsaints2009 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:19 PM

    the vikings still have not been able to lift their head from the table after picking ponder last year. oh what could have been. story of that team.

  62. dieselfan44 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:21 PM

    Just having a 50% chance to draft this kid gives me chills…Luck would be a great prize also…but I’ve fallen for RG3.

  63. footballfanman says: Mar 21, 2012 8:22 PM

    Watch out NFL. Skins are in the building.

  64. dkrause71 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:23 PM

    Just a reminder:
    Jaworski recalled that he was not overwhelmed by Rodgers in the 2005 draft.

    “To be quite honest with you, if you think back to the draft, I was not a big Rodgers guy,” Jaworski said. “I liked him. I didn’t love him. I thought it was a little bit of a reach in the first round when the Packers went and got him. I thought he did well in Jeff Tedford’s system, which is a terrific system. But at that time, I did not see a lot of throws that projected to him having success in the National Football League.

  65. gmen4life33 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:23 PM

    The same thing was said about Jamarcus Russell after his pro day. I don’t care how a guy throws with no defenders on the field
    ________________________________________________
    Exactly.

    Not exactly. Russell had an NFL arm, but a lazy/unmotivated attitude. He wanted to sit and drink cough syrup.

    RG3 comes from a military family, and good character/work ethic. He won the Heisman, and didnt go clubbing, instead he visited the 9/11 memorial. Why wouldnt a guy with the tools AND good attitude/ethic succeed?

  66. mikebaltimore12 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:24 PM

    Why do people use Mike Vick as a dis?

  67. howiehandles says: Mar 21, 2012 8:28 PM

    “This guy didnt win Heisman for nothing. ”

    Gino Torretta and Andrew Ware, among others, also won Heisman trophies. As did Eric Crouch, Troy Smith, and Tebow. Heisman doesn’t mean squuat…in the NFL.

  68. gottapoop says: Mar 21, 2012 8:28 PM

    Does it matter what he does at his pro day? Even if he threw like crap, he still is getting drafted number 2

  69. theytukrjobs says: Mar 21, 2012 8:28 PM

    He’s obviously the best pure passer in this draft. If you think otherwise then you are ill informed.

    Luck has the physique that NFL teams crave, and experience calling plays at the line in an NFL style offense. But RGIII can run and throw a football to places on the field that few can. He’s going to be scary good if he can stay on the field.

    Man I wish my beloved Vikes had lost just one more game last season…

  70. lakermetskins says: Mar 21, 2012 8:34 PM

    I’ve been on a roll lately.

    In august,
    predicted the lions would go 10-6,
    predicted Cam Newton would be a star,(drafted him in Fantasy),
    had the giants winning the Bowl when playoffs started.

    Predicting Redskins going 7-9 RG3’s first year. 11-5 the second year. Super Bowl contender after the 3rd year. I’m convinced!

    Predicting Luck to throw for more yards, be a more polished passer, and eventually winning a Bowl.

    Love both players; luck is better for the colts and RG3 is best for the skins.

  71. corsair28 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:38 PM

    Running Quarterbacks do not win championships, but what happens when you have a quarterback that does both and runs and passes well? It gives you the luxury of not worrying about your offensive line so much. The trend now is to have a double threat quarterback. This is where it is going because when you have defensive tackles that run the 40 yard dash in under 5 seconds and weigh 35o pounds (Dontari Poe), your quarterback better be able to run. If your offensive line is bad and your quarterback cannot run, you do not win either.

  72. detroitrollin22 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:40 PM

    RGII will be better than Luck. Luck is a good prospect, no doubt about that, but I’d rather build my franchise around RGII.

  73. thetooloftools says: Mar 21, 2012 8:42 PM

    What we can’ measure is RGIII’s mental ability. He is not sharp… he’s brilliant. You draft this young man, you draft a leader, a game changer. Someone other players will crawl through glass and run into a burning building for. The Cleveland Browns totally screwed up by letting him get away. He is THE MAN. Not because of what I think of him…. but from listening to him speak. If I’m the Colts… Luck isn’t even in the conversation. Irsay is sharp.

  74. billb49 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:43 PM

    Completely off-topic, but I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to all Colts fans for rooting for the Saints in that Superbowl. If I had known what complete dicks the coaching staff of the Saints were, there is no way I could have rooted for them against the Colts and Peyton Manning.

  75. dawglbfan says: Mar 21, 2012 8:45 PM

    Media hype is ridiculous…caused the redskins to risk the franchise for the next five years on a single unproven player. So is he better than Cam Newton????? doubt it

  76. silverdeer says: Mar 21, 2012 8:52 PM

    There are a whole bunch of former NFL GM’s that bet their career on guys that performed very well on their pro workout day.

  77. ajpurp says: Mar 21, 2012 8:52 PM

    DKrause- that’s because Aaron Rodgers wasn’t close to the passer he is today, have you not heard the stories that the packers organization had to complete rework his motions and revamp his entire quarterback progressions in the 3 years he sat behind Favre… Jaws was right. If he had to come in like these guys and start right away while getting pounded like Favre used to, we wouldn’t be talking about him right now.

  78. realfootballfan says: Mar 21, 2012 8:53 PM

    The fact that he and Luck are going to be the first 2 picks in the draft makes me question their sanity of even having a Pro Day. What’s the purpose?

  79. peytonsneck18 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:59 PM

    Colts is picking Luck!!!!!!! Bet on that, no matter if he has a bad pro day tmrw or not! !!

  80. baldeaglejohnie says: Mar 21, 2012 9:05 PM

    man, The Synder lead skins might have finally got something right. ##$%% ! little scary if he lives up to this hype!

  81. 104312conundrum says: Mar 21, 2012 9:06 PM

    Comparing Luck to RG3 is like comparing apples to dump trucks …two different styles suited to two different systems

    gmen4life33 says: Mar 21, 2012 8:23 PM

    Not exactly. Russell had an NFL arm, but a lazy/unmotivated attitude. He wanted to sit and drink cough syrup.

    That information didn’t come out at his pro day. He was obviously a guy that couldn’t handle the pressure that came with his draft status. Griffin should fare better in that regard.

  83. huskersrock1 says: Mar 21, 2012 9:07 PM

    @lakermetskins

    You’re new here aren’t you. We are just having fun, put up a positive story about Luck and half they posts will be about Carr or Leaf.

    The fact is taking a QB in the first couple of picks is very dangerous. If I say this guy is going to suck I will be right more often than not.

    Then I can come back and say “I told so”

    If you want a friendly site may I suggest an Oprah or some other feel good site.

  84. jyterp says: Mar 21, 2012 9:18 PM

    He graduated HS and College early, parents in the military and became the man of the house when his Dad went to Iraq on his 13th birthday… yet he gets compared to the worst characters like Russell, Vince Young and Vick???

    Before people guess what he might do in the NFL…. let’s recognize get what he’s done so far.

    You blew it Cleveland

    @huskersrock……trust me it’s VERY easy to get along with somebody all doped up on codeine. And for all the others saying U hope the Colts stick it to the skins I’m sure the skins would be happy to have a prototypical NFL QB with the athleticism of Cam Newton that he basically matched at the combine so throw em in a bag shake em up and I’ll be happy cuz we’ll be a respectable team with a QB that doesn’t resemble the dough boy.

  87. whatswiththehate says: Mar 21, 2012 9:26 PM

    These media folks are so darn predictable. Keep the attention on RG III while keeping Luck under the radar. Less attention means less scrutinizing.

    You NFL Fans…Wow…

    Good Luck RGIII. You know if you screw up, the next black QB will be pigeoned holed by these idiots in the media. Just ask Cam.

  88. backtothebowl says: Mar 21, 2012 9:43 PM

    RG3.940

    His workout today clearly established that he wants to be a Redskin.

    He NFC East teams will now have to invest in LB’s and Safeties with speed to contain this guy.

    Players like this end up dictating to other teams how they need to draft..

    Well, Jaws also said that Tebow couldn’t read defenses, had a goofy throwing motion, and would need the offense dummied down for him. Oh, wait. Jaws knows his sh$@!

    All of the haters will not rest, well… they will have nightmares when RG3 comes to town in that Redskins uniform.

    everyone here who doesn’t like griffin has the same argument. “uh, um I think he’ll be a bust cuz um they said the sake things about David Carr and Jamarcus Russell so um , yeah….”

    morons.

    Yeah….he would be a superstar but unfortunately for him, he is headed to the Redskins……….essentially a kiss of death…..of course the midget was there to watch him….

    What even defines a superstar anymore?

    man oh man i`ll tell you something. my vibe says this young man is going to be a great player. personality goes along way (as someone said before). he has all the tools plus he is or at least he comes of as a really together kid. i do not like luck. he looks like a snot face.

  98. theaceman9989 says: Mar 22, 2012 1:02 AM

    I like rg3 a lot…but the kid is being overly hyped and it’s rubbing me the wrong way…it’s like luck isn’t good anymore…you think he was the number 1 prospect for the last two years for no reason.

    I like how people watch YouTube highlights of a player and say they watched some “film”.

    With every QB bust the last 5-6 years, there were negatives that stood out to alarm pro teams that a player may not make it as a star.

    Alex Smith-Spread offense\runner
    Jamarcus- 1 year wonder, no leadership ability
    Brady Q.- arm strength
    Vince Young(bust???)- throwing motion\inaccurate
    Matt Lienert- Not a hard worker\partyer at USC
    Sam Bradford(not a bust yet)- Spread offense at OU
    Mark Sanchez(not a bust yet) – 1 year wonder, not overly impressive at USC

    Today, these guys are scrutinized more than ever. Every throw is watched and their personal life, grades, intangibles-leadership, and mentality are open books-giving GM’s a greater opportunity to better evaluate potential NFL qbs.

    RG3(spread offense) and Luck both have less negatives than the qbs mentioned above and I’m confident the skins and colts will both get great qbs.

    Look what they both gave up:
    Colts gave up on Peyton, Skins gave up 4 early picks.

    Steeler Nation = Old, Haggerd and on crutches.

    The cheap shot artist retired, no loss there..

    Mendenhall, Broken up, probably will be let go.

    WooHoo Steelers!

    What on earth does this have to do with a discussion of RGIII’s prospects? And Steeler Nation is the fanbase, not the team. I’m not old, haggard, or on crutches, thanks. We’re a year removed from the Super Bowl and were 12-4 last season. I’ll happily take several more years of that kind of failure. :roll:

    Skins really only gave up 2 first rounds (swapped this years from 6 to 2) and a second round pick, so 3 total.

  103. magicman407 says: Mar 22, 2012 1:40 PM

    Wow, it amazes me when I read how clueless some people are. Comparing to J Russel to Griffin? Jamarcus had a cannon and tons of upside coming out, but this kid Griffin and Lucks athletic ability, accuracy and basically everything besides arm strength is all in favor of Luck and Griffin, not even close.

    Its likely just haters or children.

    “autumnwind999 says:Mar 21, 2012 8:13 PM

    Not that sold on RGIII. Not quite the athlete Vick is. Doesn’t strike me as a crisp, in command passer like Luck, Manning, Brees or Newton.

    Seems like a good kid and obviously has some ability, but I would be really surprised if he ever rises to the top tier of NFL QBs. Would be less surprised if he’s a bust, but figure he’ll wind up somewhere in the middle of the pack.”

    He is actually right on par if not more athletic than Vick coming out. In fact hes a much better passer coming out than Vick was. The kid will be good and if in Washington, he will be going to a system that he will excell in. Nothing isn’t impressive about these kids coming out. They both are the best Qb prospects ive seen coming out in a long time. Hell Even Tannehill is a better prosepect than guys like Josh Freeman, but because Luck and Griffin are such amazing prospects, the gap is huge.
