Is RG3 the second best QB prospect since Peyton Manning?

Andrew Luck is universally believed to be the best QB prospect since Peyton Manning, and will be the #1 pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

So why did the Washington Redskins give up so much to trade for the #2 pick? Because Robert Griffin just might be the second best prospect since Peyton Manning.

Thirty five quarterbacks have been drafted in the first round since Peyton Manning was selected with the first pick in the 1998 draft.

Let go down memory lane and analyze each of the QBs taken in the first round since Manning, and see where RGIII fits in.
