VIDEO: RG3's Insanely Fast 40-Yard Dashes At 2012 NFL Combine

Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III set the 2012 NFL combine on fire Sunday morning when he ran the 40-yard dash with times of 4.41 and a blistering 4.38. He has often been compared to Carolina quarterback Cam Newton who in contrast had a 40 time of 4.60.

It is the fastest time by a quarterback in 12 years. Michael Vick comes to mind as someone who was slightly faster.

Unlike Newton, Griffin wasn't regarded as a "running or scrambling" type of quarterback. His combine performance suggests that he is as dynamic a prospect as the NFL has seen in some time at the quarterback position.


Griffin is regarded as the second best quarterback prospect in the draft behind the likely first-overall selection Andrew Luck. Performances like this however could close that gap considerably.
