The NFL needs RGIII more than RGIII needs the NFL. He will be the difference in a good QB verses a Great QB.

Robert Griffin III doesnt need Pro Football. He is a 3 year Baylor Graduate with a 3.8 GPA in Political Science and Communications. A very humble, classy, and respectable young man. He has taken Baylor to heights nobody else has including Mike Singletary. The critics of RGIII will be eating crow one day.

I agree. What more did Monte Ball have to do? He led the NCAA in yards, touchdowns, and still gets overlooked. The Badgers went 10-2, Rose Bowl appearance, and get rid of two dumb plays, could be undefeated, yet this guy gets it. Hmmmm? And yes I'll admit it I am bias towards Wisconsin.
