2012 NFL Draft: Robert Griffin III To Enter NFL Draft, According To A Report

2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III is reportedly forging his final year of eligibility at Baylor and will be entering the 2012 NFL Draft. Griffin raised Baylor's football program from the ashes to be a relevant program during his time on campus and now according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Griffin is leaving Baylor to enter the 2012 NFL Draft.

This past season Griffin threw for 4,293 yards and 37 touchdowns in 2011, and rushed for another 699 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Griffin has been shooting up draft boards over the past few weeks and is looking to be a potential top-10 pick come April. The only quarterback to be ranked ahead of Griffin is Stanford's Andrew Luck who is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick.
