The 2012 season is just days away from kicking off and this looks like an exciting season with a lot of big-name rookies expected to make a huge impact. But you can’t talk about those rookies without the inevitable comparisons. Here’s a look at some of the top rookies and how they compare to their contemporaries.

Doug Williams became the first post-merger African-American quarterback selected in round one of the NFL draft in 1978 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers grabbed the Grambling State signal caller with the 17th pick.
Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III were drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall, respectively, in the past two NFL drafts.

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is familiar with pressure.
No, not the stress stemming from rumors of dating a supermodel.
But the 2010 No. 1 overall draft pick knows the expectations of being a franchise quarterback.

When we last visited with new Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, he was telling me about ‘Skins fans. Yes, the No. 2 pick said he was ready. The team obviously hopes so. Because there will be pressure. From that fan base, no doubt. One former Redskins Super Bowl winner — Mark Rypien — thinks that will help. That’s what he told me out in Lake Tahoe for this celebrity golf tournament. First of all, Rypien loves RG3. He described him as “smart. He understands the game. Escape-ability is such a key now. As long as he stays healthy, they got a chance to do some good things.” When are those good things expected? Rypien didn’t mince words.

Robert Griffin III has prepared himself for the many parts of being a professional athlete. In fact, he seems ready for everything. Among the many topics we discussed during the Subway commercial shoot on Thursday, RG3 and I hit on the Washington Redskins fans. Yup, he knows they are nuts (in a good way). He likes it. But is he ready for them? “The excitement from the fan base is definitely there,” Griffin told me. “We won’t be able to say we show up at FedEx Field and there were no fans there. And they’re gonna be excited. They won’t be out there booing or anything like that. They want to see us do well. So I think it’s up to […]

We spent yesterday at a studio in Dallas, hanging with Redskins QB Robert Griffin III while he took part in a Subway shoot. It was a cool experience, and you read one highlight here. But in the car ride from one site to the next, I spoke with RGIII for about 10 minutes on a bunch of issues that filled up my story just posted on NFL.com. It was hard not to believe him when he spoke about the Redskins future. “I want to help the team win more games than they won the previous year,” Griffin told me. “I don’t want to put a limit on things, because the sky is the limit.” What was also kinda crazy? The […]

No, this isn’t a lockout-filled summer. Not this year. But that doesn’t mean players have abandoned the idea of getting together and throwing as a means of building cohesion. The Texans recently did it. And now, so will the Redskins. I spent the morning at Motion Imaginary Studio-A in Dallas, watching as Redskins QB Robert Griffin III shot a commercial for Subway. He was announced as its newest famous fan, joining the likes of Blake Griffin, Ndamukong Suh and others. You probably saw some highlights on Twitter (right). Anyway, as RG3 was being driven from one site to the next, we spoke for about 10 minutes. You’ll read a bunch of that tomorrow on NFL.com. But he clued me in on […]

Contract negotiations for Saints QB Drew Brees aren’t going to progress well if the team clings to its silly assertion it should receive a discount for taking a medical risk for him in 2006.

Bucky Brooks and Matt “Money” Smith cast their gaze to the top prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft. Could next year’s draft have even more talent than 2012?
