NFL Draft 2012: Robert Griffin III Meets With Art Briles One More Time Before Sunday Draft Deadline

Heisman Trophy winner and current Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III is already projected to be one of the top ten picks in the 2012 NFL Draft this April if he decides to declare for the draft. With the deadline for underclassmen to declare coming up this Sunday, 'RG3' made another visit to Bears head coach Art Briles on Monday.

"It's a situation where he's really contemplating what he feels like is the thing that's going to give him peace," coach Art Briles said.

Briles said he is for whatever Griffin feels is the right thing to do, whether it's the NFL or coming back to play as a senior at Baylor.

"Like I told him from day one, I don't want to be any influence on it," Briles said. "My goal for him is for him to be successful and fulfill all of his dreams. If that dream is going to the NFL right now, that's great."

Griffin, who played this season as a fourth-year junior, has another of year of eligibility although he is already almost done with his masters' degree. Griffin received medical redshirt after he tore the ACL in his right knee versus Northwestern State in 2009.
