Robert Griffin III Ranked No. 15 on NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2013 List

USA TODAY Sports

The accolades for Robert Griffin III's marvelous rookie season continue, as he was the highest-ranked rookie on NFL Network's annual list.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III ranked 15th overall among NFL Network’s list of Top 100 players of 2012.

Griffin was the highest-ranked rookie from the 2012 draft class on the list, besting players including Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (23rd), Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (51st) and Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (57th). Other notable players to finish behind Griffin are Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Cam Newton.

Griffin had a rookie season for the ages, taking the basement-dwelling Redskins from seasons past to an NFC East title, the team’s first since 1999. With Griffin at the helm, the team compiled a 9-6 record, won seven straight games to close out the season. Griffin also won Rookie of the Year honors and earned a Pro-Bowl bid, although he did not play due to injury.

In addition to being named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week twice and Rookie of the Week six times over the course of the season, Griffin threw for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns to just five interceptions. His quarterback rating of 104.2 quarterback rating and 815 rushing yards are both NFL records for rookies.

Griffin is the fourth member of the team to make 2013’s list, joining Alfred Morris (64th), London Fletcher (86th) and Trent Williams (99th).
