Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III has had a sterling reputation throughout the NFL draft evaluation process, but one unnamed scout isn’t convinced that RG3 is the league’s next golden boy.
“As much as is written about Griffin’s athleticism, his athleticism under duress in the pocket isn’t even close to Cam Newton’s. This guy, the only way he gets big plays with his feet is if he’s got a wide-open field and the sea opens for him. He’s got a little bit of a selfish streak, too. Everybody was laying on Cam, but for some reason this guy has become gloves off. He doesn’t treat anybody good,” the scout recently told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The newspaper also recently took a poll of 20 NFL talent evaluators to find out the top prospect in next week’s draft. Seventeen chose Luck as the top player, while two picked Griffin and one opted for Alabama RB Trent Richardson.
