2012 NFL Combine Results
February 29, 2012 by staff
2012 NFL Combine Results, After a week of workouts, the 2012 NFL Combine is over. NFL draft prospects will be leaving Indianapolis to continue their training elsewhere while NFL scouts, coaches and GMs will head back home to evaluate what they just saw in the last week.
So what did happen in the last week? Robert Griffin III confirmed he’s one of the best athletes in the draft, Dontari Poe looked nimble at 346 pounds and Vontaze Burfict might as well have stayed home.
Robert Griffin III’s Combine makes the top of the draft a lot more interesting. Andrew Luck is considered by many to be the better prospect but I can’t lead off with anyone but RG3. The former Baylor quarterback was confident yet charismatic during his media press conference leaving many people very, very impressed with the way he handled himself. And then he showed his talents on the field are just as strong as he ran an impressive 4.41 40-yard dash and had a 39-inch vertical leap. He didn’t throw while at the Combine — neither did Luck — but he did enough to make the race for the No. 1 pick at least a little interesting. We still expect Luck to go No. 1 but all of a sudden the No. 2 pick seems a lot more valuable. Whoever gets the second pick, gets Griffin III.
Just how much faster is RG3 than other top quarterbacks? Here’s a spliced GIF that shows RG3 zipping past Andrew Luck and last year’s top pick, Cam Newton:
The Rams should be very content with the way the Combine went. RG3 as one of the top stories at the Combine is great news for the St. Louis Rams because they hold the No. 2 overall pick, which is where teams will have to be to secure RG3. The Rams, by the way, made it very clear at the Combine that the No. 2 pick was for sale. The more hype surrounding Griffin III, the more picks the Rams can expect to get in return. By the time the Combine was over, we saw reports out of Washington D.C. that the Redskins were prepared to do what it takes to move up to the second pick to select Robert Griffin III. Expect more of those types of reports to come. Griffin III’s stock is rising, even if his draft position likely won’t.
