Robert Griffin III Reportedly Leaning Towards Entering The Draft

While Robert Griffin III has steadfastly refused to comment on the possibility of the NFL after the season, a Sports Illustrated writer is reporting that the Heisman winner is leaning towards entering the NFL Draft:

Said on 12/22 things could change and they have- hearing Robert Griffin III had a change of heart and leaning towards entering the draft.

Griffin, a fourth-year junior, has already completed his BA degree and is currently studying for a MA in Communications in one of Baylor's graduate programs.

After winning the Heisman, defeating Texas and Oklahoma and leading Baylor to consecutive bowl games for only the fourth time in the program's 106-year history, Griffin has little left to accomplish in Waco.

He's currently projected to be a top 5 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and after already suffering one season-ending knee injury during his college career, he may want to become a professional while the iron is hot.

His departure wouldn't leave the cupboard bare in Waco, as Art Briles has steadily built up the program in his four years there.

Griffin's backup, junior Nick Florence, looked impressive in relief of the junior superstar in the second half of the Texas Tech game, after Griffin left with a head injury.
