Robert Griffin III Headlines the 2012 All-Rookie Team

Quarterback Cam Newton was a freak of nature. The quarterback class this year has a lot to live up to. While it is doubtful that any of the incoming quarterbacks will get close to Newton's year last season, there is one who will have a good enough year. Robert Griffin III is the most notable. Griffin has landed in the best position. He will be passing to Santana Moss, Chris Cooley and Fred Davis. Griffin can hand the ball off to Roy Helu, Tim Hightower or Evan Royster. Mike Shanahan will model the offense around Griffin's talents, which include a rocket arm and the ability to run. Griffin won't reach Cam Newton's numbers but he will be productive.
