Robert Griffin III Ran a 4.38 40, and Now the Rams Will Ask for a Ransom for the No. 2 Pick

Robert Griffin III, the Heisman winner from Baylor, just ran a 4.38 40 at the NFL combine, destroying the 4.6 Cam Newton ran last year, when he was taken No. 1 overall.

[UPDATE: Michael Vick ran a 4.25 at his Pro Day at Virginia Tech, and then 4.33 40 at the Combine.]

This is tremendous news for the woebegone St. Louis Rams, who hold the No. 2 pick in the draft. The Browns are among the teams who need a QB and covet RG3, and the Rams’ asking price just went through the roof. If I were a Cleveland fan, I’d be very nervous about getting outbid by Washington’s Daniel “Checkbook” Snyder.

Griffin’s blazing 40 yard dash actually beat Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd (4.41). I think it’s safe to say in our next mock draft, we’ll definitely have Griffin No. 2 overall.
