According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III will declare himself eligible for the 2012 NFL Draft before the January 15th deadline for underclassmen to do so.
Griffin, this year's Heisman Trophy recipient, has completed more than 72 percent of his passes for nearly 4,300 yards and has a 37:6 touchdown-to-interception ratio this season. In addition, Griffin was second on the team in rushing with 699 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Last year, Griffin threw 3,501 yards, 22 touchdowns and only eight interceptions in addition to rushing for 462 yards and eight touchdowns.
Especially with USC quarterback Matt Barkley returning to school for his senior season, RG3 will be one of the top two quarterbacks selected along with Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
