    A slight edit: Gil Brandt timed RGIII at 4.34 in the 40

    I love how the media is having an orgasm with his 40 time. IDK why, but this year the combine is just so funny b/c of the media.

    How is his durability? I mean Vick is fast but he can never play a full season. These fast scramble QB's usually don't last as long in the NFL. It's almost like clockwork. Put up amazing stats in the regular season, fold in the playoffs.

    Thats the only big concern with him, IMO. Hes a little taller than Vick and weighs more, but he is still a pretty damn good passer so he shouldnt run the ball as much and take unnecessary hits. He will stay in the pocket and not panic and run every time.

    Yeah. RGIII is a better passer than Vick was coming outta college. RGIII should hang out in the pocket a bit more than Vick. I also think he has the frame to take more hits. He is pretty much a Cam Newton Micheal Vick hybrid.

    You know, I almost hate to compare him to such a great player, but the only comparison I can make is Randall Cunningham - and we all know how much of an athletic passer Cunningham was.

    Just saw the video of RGIII's broad jump. Very Impressive. It came in at 10 flat, but he exploded up as well as forward. Most guys dont get very far off the ground. Griffen was a solid 2-2 and 1/2 feet up.

    Interesting to not Luck posted a 10'6" broad, so he actually bested RGIII

    Maybe OLE Brandt's stop watch "hand-eye" coordination is on the fritz. :?!:

    Anyway, I'm not sure his straight ahead speed is all that important, that is unless he gets to Tebow's size. :sly:

    Another thing, what if in that Baylor/OU game, that one pass wasn't tipped and caught into the Baylor WR's hands for a long TD? I'd bet OU would win that game, b/c that play just sucked the life out of OU. I mean, it really wasn't until after that game did RG3 get some serious attention.
