Baylor Pro Day: RG3 Impresses As Redskins Look On

Mike Shanahan and the Washington Redskins paid a steep price to trade up for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. It's only logical that owner Dan Snyder joined Shanahan and the Redskins staff as they watched Robert Griffin III work out during Baylor's pro day.

Needless to say, RG3 impressed all those who were watching, including the folks over at Mocking the Draft. Apparently, Griffin has dramatically improved his footwork, which could be key to his success as an NFL quarterback.

His most impressive aspect from my point of view was his improved footwork. He has clearly been working on that, with effective results. His drop-backs looks fluid and easy for him and stepped into his throws correctly. One of his knocks was that he can throw off his back-foot sometimes, but today he had no troubles with that.

Griffin's arm strength was also on full display, as reports from spectators say that the ball "jumps off his hand." RG3 reportedly displayed good touch on his passes as well.

Griffin's athleticism was on display immediately. He ran several play-action passes which he developed into bootlegs and roll-out throws. He looked accurate on the move throwing both underneath and deep routes with touch and excellent ball placement.

Though the Redskins paid a steep price, it does appear that they are getting one heck of a talent in RG3 -- and he might just end up justifying the price paid by Shanahan and Snyder. At the least, he gives Redskins fans something to look forward to.
