Robert Griffin III


The anointment of Andrew Luck as the clear top prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft class underwent a seismic shift when Griffin blew scouts away with his 40-yard dash times of 4.41 and 4.38 seconds, the latter the fastest time by a quarterback in 12 years. Griffin was not exactly regarded a running quarterback but clearly changed that perspective with his blazing speed. Luck still went first in the draft, but RGIII won Rookie of the Year and led the Washington Redskins to the playoffs with 3,200 passing yards, 815 rushing yards, 27 total touchdowns and just five interceptions.
