Heisman Winner Robert Griffin III Enters the NFL Draft

After a college career in which he set 54 school records in just 41 games, Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III announced Wednesday that he would be skipping his final year of eligibility to enter the NFL draft.

An All-American in the 400-meter hurdles, Griffin chose football over an Olympic track career and has almost single-handedly turned the Baylor football program around. This year, Griffin led Baylor to their second 10-win season in school history (the last came in 1980 during Mike Singletary’s senior year). He threw for almost 4,300 yards, 37 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also added 699 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground. The fourth-year junior is one of only three players in FBS history with 10,000 yards passing and 2,000 rushing in a career.

Griffin came to Baylor as a 17-year old junior after graduating high school a semester early. He graduated in December 2010 with a degree in political science and is close to completing his work for a Master’s degree in communications.

Most draft experts expect Griffin to be the second quarterback taken in the draft, after Stanford’s Andrew Luck.
