RG3 unofficially clocked at 4.41, 4.38

For those arguing that Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III should leap Andrew Luck as the top quarterback -- and prospect -- of the 2012 draft, he helped the cause by demonstrating his unbelievable straight-line speed Sunday morning. 

Griffin was unofficially clocked at 4.41 seconds by The NFL Network on his first attempt and ran even faster the second time around, zipping down the line at 4.38 seconds, according to the league's stopwatch. 

The demonstration of spectacular speed was not a surprise considering Griffin's Olympic potential, but it nonetheless gives scouts an actual time to go with all of the Heisman winner's highlights. 

Griffin is currently rated as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 2 prospect in the draft and is projected by Senior Analyst Rob Rang to be the subject of an aggressive trade-up by some QB-hungry team in his recent mock draft.
