I’ve been buried.
That said, I will make it up to you with multiple Draftwatches this week.
Today is a player profile (the first of man) with video (not all of them will have that).
The Draft Spotlight series continues!
Today, Robert Griffin III.
I chose this game, one of RG3′s worst, because it shows a lot of good AND bad as well as a lot of his mental toughness.
RG3 never gives up and shakes things off when they go wrong. It’s a good tape in my opinion because you get the full range of his play.
I like Griffin, and have grown to really enjoy watching him play. He’s more of a project than Luck, but not so much so that you wouldn’t be happy with either one.
Griffin started out this draft season with a lot of (now-unproven) questions, but now suffers from the reverse of that with too much hype.
I’m not saying he’s no good—far from it. However, I think the whole ‘he’s so much better than Luck’ internet Meme is a bit much.
Listen, neither of these guys has taken an NFL snap yet. So for all we know, Aaron Corp is the best QB in the class (he’s really not).
Luck and Griffin, while not so far apart in ability or skill set, are different quarterbacks. It’s ludicrous to put one down to bring the other up.
It’s what the media and fans do of course, but it’s not right.
Anyway, we’ll have more of this every day this week and likely next week where we’ll finish off with both Nagler and I (as well as Mr Behnke I believe) live at Radio City Music hall for the NFL Draft.
The next video is probably Trent Richardson. The next prospect spotlight is going to be Shea McClellin and that will be tomorrow at some point.
