RG3 becomes RG 4.38 as combine rolls on

By Mike Sando

INDIANAPOLIS -- Watching Robert Griffin III back up a 4.41-second time with a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash left no doubt about the Baylor quarterbacks athletic credentials.

And while it's an overstatement to say the St. Louis Rams are cheering the results, anything Griffin does to enhance his standing figures to help the Rams get value for the second overall choice in the 2012 draft.

Or, perhaps more accurately, we might put it this way: The fact that Griffin has done nothing to diminish his standing among NFL teams bolsters the likelihood another team will want to acquire the second overall pick with an eye toward selecting Griffin.
