After Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III’s performance this weekend at the NFL Combine, the St. Louis Rams are not wasting any time and are talking with teams for their overall number two pick in the draft. According to sources, as being reported by ESPN, the Rams are talking with the Cleveland Browns (No. 4), Washington Redskins (No. 6) and Miami Dolphins (No. 8).
Miami and Washington were among the teams that interviewed RG3 at the combine. The Chiefs had also reportedly visited with Griffin. Both RG3 and Andrew Luck did not throw at the Combine, but their drill numbers were impressive and comparable to last year’s overall number one pick, Cam Newton.
Griffin was officially clocked at 4.41 in the 40-yard dash, while Luck came in at 4.67. Luck also put his versatility on display Sunday. His broad jump (10 feet, 4 inches) was two inches short of quarterback Cam Newton ‘s best in 2011, and Luck’s vertical jump (36 inches) was better than Newton’s (35). Griffin was better than Luck in the vertical jump (39 inches) but fell short in the broad jump (10 feet).
