Robert Griffin III is back o the market.

Its Official: Robert Griffin III Delcares for the NFL Draft


South Florida, keep hope alive.

In what was a seesaw public display of NFL declaration and loyalty to Baylor, 2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III has finally decided that he is going pro, pending a formal announcement. Sources report that Griffin III is in the midst of deciding whom he will choose to represent him in his career as an NFL quarterback.

Robert Griffin III going Pro.

So what does this mean to the Dolphins? it means that the chances we saw disappear in the great Matt Barkley out of USC (most likely next years consensus number one) and the lesser revered but similarily physically gifted Landry Jones returning to school to polish their skills and improve their draft stock for 2013 does not mean the Dolphins would have to pay a ransom for the draft rights to Andrew Luck (aka the number pick in this year’s draft) or have to sit and watch the Indianapolis Colts select a fourth possible hall of fame quarterback (Johnny Unitas, John Elway, Peyton Manning are the other three).

Now, rather than watch the highest graded QB to come out of the college ranks go off the board and re-inflate the Dolphins longing for Dan Marino, we can anticipate, hope for, speculate and down right pray for the Dolphins to begin their plan to bring a viable number one quarterback to the Dolphins team, for the first time since the aforementioned Marino retired, in RGIII. He, by the way  is graded just 4 points less than Luck’s 99 at 95. He’s not as far from Luck as some may think.

If Cam Newton is any indication the new breed of mobile quarterback’s is completely its own breed. No Vicks. No Tebows. No Brad Smiths. These boys can throw, read the field and lead a team, now.  Robert Griffin III is the sole reason Baylor saw its first double digit win season and bowl victory in over a decade.

Its obviously not set in stone that Dolphins will end up with Robert Griffin III at the flip pick of 8/9 or that they will have the resources necessary to get a deal done to move up in the draft to select the Heisman Trophy winner. But a quarterback that completes 72% of his passes, has 41 more total touchdowns than picks and owns a Heisman, is a prove leader AND has awesome socks is someone that needs to be considered worthy of, if not a Julio Jones or Ricky Williams draft deal, a long look and attempt at making sure that when May 1st hits, he is wearing Aqua and Coral.

    beg, borrow or steal to get this guy…

    If we give up a kings ransom for this guy, I’m gonna puke. Let the Browns or Redskins take him. RG3 is too “all over the place” for my liking. He’s most accurate passing the ball when he’s running which makes him more susceptible to injury. No thanks, I’ll pass.

    Protect the QB, that should be #1 priority. That means selecting an RT Reiff or Martin 1st round. Fans won’t like it at first, but the Phins are possibly 2 or 3 holes away from being a playoff team. RT is at the top of that list, not QB.

    RGIII is a halfback set option qb=lower tear running back in the nfl,not only no but hell no!!!!!!

  • Lespaul

    Guess you all have never seen him play…what a shame. He is not an option QB and he is not just a running QB. Check out the link below for some REAL game footage. Base your opinions on fact not assumptions. Now, will he be a great QB in the NFL?? Maybe and I bet that he will be.I do concur that Miami needs O-line upgrade, but their QB’s are sad and inconsistent.

    @RandyCarlson Incidentally, Baylor ran a spread offense and at times did indeed run the option. More for a short yardage stretch play than a base offense. RGlll threw for 4,293 yards with 37 touchdowns and 6 ints. 74.4% completion ratio with close to 11 yards per pass play. Not bad for an option QB…..

      I can understand the fear and loathing when it comes to QB potential and Dolphins in the same thought. It drives the sane crazy and the crazy sane. But you can’t really argue with his efficiency, yards per completion, arm strength, IQ lack of interceptions all while playing better competition than the ACC may see in a while. The kid is uber talented and kids like him revolutionize the game. Remind’s me of a more accurate and efficient Randall Cunningham.
