2012 NFL Scouting Report – Robert Griffin

Scouting Reports

2012 NFL Draft Scouting Report – QB Robert Griffin III:

Measurables:

Height:  6’2”

Weight: 223

Pros:

  • Incredibly strong arm, which advanced deep ball accuracy
  • Excellent speed and athleticism
  • Very good overall accuracy
  • Smart, intelligent quarterback
  • Fearless when facing pressure
  • Despite his speed, Griffin is still a passer first
  • Can make all the NFL throws

Cons:

  • Comes from a spread system, that was fairly simplistic
  • Had a lot of one or two read plays in the system, didn’t have to make many progressions
  • Size is on the smaller side, can he hold up for an entire season in the NFL?
  • Needs to work at being more consistent when throwing on the run

 

Analysis:

Though Robert Griffin might not be Andrew Luck, but he is a very talented quarterback in his own right. While he is less of a finished product, Griffin’s maturity and work ethic, make him a safer bet (than most) to reaching his ultimate potential. Griffin’s success will be determined primarily with how he develops as a pocket passer, but whatever team selects him would be wise to utilize his athletic skill set.
