After over a month of speculation about his NFL future, Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III will officially announce his NFL draft decision in a press conference Wednesday afternoon:

While a return to Waco would make the Baylor QB the biggest star in college football and the Bears a preseason Big 12 title contender, few expected him to forgo the NFL draft, even before reports of his decision to leave began circulating Tuesday night.

Not only is he a fourth-year junior who has already completed his BA and is finishing up a MA, he already missed most of the 2009 season with an ACL injury and is exposed to a lot of hits running head coach Art Briles' spread offense.

Most mock drafts have Griffin going right behind Stanford's Andrew Luck somewhere in the top 5, depending on whether QB-hungry teams jump the Cleveland Browns at No. 4 and the Washington Redskins at No. 6 to select the Baylor star.

However, even if Griffin leaves, the cupboard isn't entirely bare in Waco, as Nick Florence, a QB with three years of experience backing up the Heisman winner, will likely take over under center.

Florence filled in admirably for Griffin in the second half of the Texas Tech game, completing 9-12 passes for 156 yards and 2 TD's in the Bears 66-42 victory.
