Luck doesn't throw the prettiest deep ball either.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. Griffin is probably the best deep ball thrower in the country right now. Consistently puts it in a good position for the wide receiver. He didn't do a good job of that in the Bowl Game, but his ability to go vertical is what really elevated his game this year.

True, but he really does have excellent ball placement (a la Rivers). Rarely do you see the WR ever have to break stride or wait on the pass (which I see almost every game from Barkley [and I'm not trying to pick on Barkley because he does throw a lot of nice deep balls, too - I've just seen more games of him than any of the other QBs]).

RG3 is very much a "see it and throw it" type of QB right now, as opposed to playing with great anticipation. And he'll need to improve as an anticipation thrower, because he doesn't have the kind of power arm to make up for it.

He seems to generally understand how routes synch up with drops when he drops back from under center, and that's usually the hardest aspect to teach in regards to the offensive transition. So that's a plus.

Really, the main thing I'm concerned about is shrinking/getting small under pressure, perceiving pressure at times, and holding the ball too long.

really? he didn't connect on them all, but his deep passes in the bowl game even were on the money. one to kendall wright hit him in his right pocket. he is just amazing at those bucket throws.

His bucket throws are great and his screen game is very nice.

His intermediate game is almost non-existent which makes him hard to evaluate.

I don't doubt his ability to make any throws or his timing and sharpness. The big thing about him is his rawness and his ability to run a pro style offense. Might not be as smooth of a transition as it was for Cam Newton, can't expect that from every QB who comes from that run and shoot spread. Using proper footwork on his drops and learning to read and assess a defense are huge parts of being a successful NFL QB and those will take him time.

Very true. With no lockout this year, he'll have an opportunity to get accustomed to his new NFL offense a bit earlier which may or may not help. It couldn't hurt though the earlier the better. right? He's a hard worker, no reason to think he won't take footwork and the nuances lightly. I think he'll hit the filmroom hard and put in more than enough work to make himself translate well. That's just me though. We'll see.

Why is RGIII taking forever to declare??

I can't believe there's one person inside or outside the Baylor program who's telling him he should return to school.
You don't defer the NFL for a year or 2 because you want to start law school, or play for a team that will be even worse next season.

If his goal is to play in the NFL, the time to go is NOW.

He has until the 15th, why not wait? He hosted 7 sports agents this week, he is leaving, no need to announce it.
