If you are saying he isn't, then you make the case why, because you just saying it doesn't make it so.
And no one was throwing out multiple picks for Griffin at this point last year. The Griffin frenzy was just starting to pick up steam when he received the Heisman and built to a crescendo at the Combine. Same thing with Cam Newton. (And that guy had a dog shit combine - I've never seen a QB throw that poorly in a structured setting than that, but again, you can't necessarily predict that that means anything. The guy is a gamer and shows up on the field.)
Sorry, but because the ****ing stupid Washington Redskins pissed away three first rounders on Griffin isn't the sole measuring stick of why he was a better prospect than Smith. (And remember, the Redskins gave Albert Haynesworth 100 million dollars. Their decision making in football hasn't been the best.)
You'll have to do better than that to convince me otherwise.
First, it isn't just the skins. Every draft expert believed he was an elite prospect. Some even wondered if he would go ahead of luck. Multiple teams were making offers for aggressive trade up. Don't act like the skins were some crazy team going Rogue. Rgiii was a consensus blue chip prospect.
And again, their passing skill sets are similar. Geno is probably more polished in the pocket. But Rgiii ability to also be an elite athlete adds a whole dimension to his gMe that Geno does not have. And yes, I view Rgiii as a Pocket passer who can use his legs as a weapon only as needed.
