Robert Griffin III Set to Declare for Draft

This morning on ESPN's NFL Countdown Chris Mortensen reported that Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III is set to declare for the NFL draft before the January 15 deadline. Griffin is expected to be the second quarterback taken in April's draft behind Andrew Luck, and is thought to be a prime target for the Redskins. Browns' top draft pick last year and a former teammate of Giffin's, Phil Taylor recently spoke on RG3's NFL prospects:

"He’s the type of athlete that could fit into any system," Taylor said. "He can run, he can pass. He can take snaps under the center, shotgun; whatever you need, he can do. . . . They said the same thing about Cam — ‘Is he gonna adapt to the system?’ And he’s doing great right now with Carolina."

Today's games around the league could drastically affect where RG3 will be playing in 2012.
