INDIANAPOLIS -- If you thought it was impossible for NFL people to fall more in love with Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, you thought wrong. RG3 proved exactly why on Sunday, shredding the 40-yard dash and looking as fast as expected en route to running an official 4.41 40-yard dash.

Andrew Luck, not exactly known as a speedster, was perhaps more impressive with his unofficial 4.59 40 time, later changed to a 4.67 official time.

Griffin's time (both officially and unofficially) was the second-fastest by a quarterback since 2006, with only Reggie McNeal's time of 4.35 in 2006 beating him out. Russell Wilson of Wisconsin ran a 4.50 40 for the second-fastest time of the day, and Jordan Jefferson of LSU ran a 4.59.

The bump up from unofficial to official doesn't matter too much; Griffin got below 4.4 seconds on an unofficial time and that's all people around the league really need to see.

Griffin ran track at Baylor (and in high school) and his performance at the combine -- on the field, in front of the mic, wherever -- has only continued to cement his status as a lock for top-five status in the NFL draft.

It would be stunning, honestly, if RG3 fell further than the second pick. There's a strong belief that the Rams will hold an auction for the No. 2 pick and that someone will pay a hefty price to move up and grab Griffin.

Which is why folks in St. Louis should be enjoying this almost as much as teams who are chasing Griffin are.

And anyone that saw Terry B play knows he was a pretty good runner, and athlete. I don't know where some of these people get their information.

Aikman, Bradshaw, Kelly, Montana, etc......none could outrun a d lineman but all were pretty dang good.
You can't put Kelly and Montana in the same sentence.  Kelly was a classic pocket passer/statue.  Montana was drafted in part due to his running ability shown at Notre Dame, and how it would fit into the WCO.

You are such a wuss!! To answer your question, yas I would, What are you going to do beat me up? Been in plenty of scrapes in my life. What's one more? Tell you what, change your screen name to SENSITIVE SALLY!!!

You continue to prove that you are a 1st class loser that only a Mother could love. As for naming more QB's? Why? I proved my point. Elway was a dual threat, and you wear panties with cotton in the crotch!!! LOL!!!

I disagree. Elway was a running threat as evidence by the numbers. If a play broke down, he wasn't shy about tucking it and going. And don't be so sensitive. You called me a fool, talked about my life and my wife. Did you see me getting upset? Look, now you're calling me old? LOL!!! And there were runners way before Cunningham. Check your history dude. Lane, Tarkenton, Zorn, to name a few. See this is why I use Knowledge..., LOL!!
