Robert Griffin rookie cards are going to be some of the hottest football cards of 2012. Robert Griffin III will most likely be the second quarterback taken in the 2012 NFL draft. The Baylor, Heisman Trophy winner, has all the intangibles that make up a top 5 draft pick. The NFL has been seen a conversion from the typical drop back passer to the new age quarterback that can press a defense by running and scrambling to buy time and extend drives. NFL quarterbacks like Michael Vick and Tim Tebow have proven that running quarterbacks can be very successful and a nightmare for opposing defensive coordinators who have to game plan for them. Griffin not only has all the scrambling and running skills but also a gun for an arm and pin point accuracy that rivals Andrew Luck’s from Stanford. There are more than a few NFL teams that are in desperate need of a QB. Some of these teams include the Cleveland Browns picking 5th, the Washington Redskins 6th and Miami Dolphins 8th. All of these teams would be thrilled to draft the franchise quarterback and stake their teams future on Griffin’s back. These are just a few reasons why collectors are going taking notice.
