As Rich Eisen of the NFL Network said, “That’s not RG3 speed, that’s 4G speed.” Robert Griffin III ran an unofficial 4.38 in the 40-yard dash.
If that time holds, that will be the fastest 40 time run by a quarterback in 12 years.
Baylor’s Heisman Trophy winning quarterback is already widely considered the best athlete to come out of the draft at the quarterback position ever. Griffin’s speedy 40 time can be partly attributed to his time on the track at Baylor. Before he decided to devote his time fully to football, Griffin was an All-American hurdler.
At this point, there isn’t much that can hurt his draft stock.
Just to compare a little bit, here’s Tim Tebow’s 40-yard dash.
