Quarterback Robert Griffin III remains a work in progress as he transitions to being a pocket passer. The Redskins would be wise to still incorporate his legs, but he does not have to be defined by them. Griffin needs more experience in this situation and coach Jay Gruden understands it will take some time. Griffin has not had a bad camp; he has not had a phenomenal camp. He’s better than he was last summer.
Griffin owned the #3 PPG in his rookie season, but that fell to #17 last season due to the inefficiency of the team’s offense and his ability to run on his surgically repaired knee. The knee should be close to 100 percent entering the season, but there is a new coaching staff in town, led by HC Jay Gruden. The team added DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts in free agency, so RG3 has a great receiving corps at his disposal. We like RG3, but feel he is being overdrafted relative to other passers in the same tier.
