INDIANAPOLIS, IN (The Spread) – Former Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III turned heads at the scouting combine over the weekend with his impressive 40-yard dash time.
Griffin ran the sprint twice Sunday and was unofficially clocked with a two-run average of 4.38 seconds. Andrew Luck, the Heisman runner-up and favorite to be the No. 1 pick, later ran twice, getting clocked at 4.66 and 4.59.
Griffin's early time was ranked in the top five at midmorning. The best overall time Sunday was a 4.30, turned in by Georgia Tech receiver Stephen Hill.
Miami's Travis Benjamin (4.32), North Carolina State's T.J. Graham (4.35) and Wake Forest's Chris Givens (4.37) all ran faster times than Griffin, but all three are receivers.
More than 300 draft hopefuls are working out in Indianapolis. Drills will run all day Sunday.
Griffin paid out –140 to beat Wisconsin’s Russell Wilson (+100) for the prop, “Which quarterback will have the faster 40-yard dash time at this year’s scouting combine.” Griffin also paid out –135 in a separate prop bet to beat LSU’s Jordan Jefferson (-105).Want More From TheSpread.com?
