Robert Griffin III is not the star many make him out to be, not quite yet. In due time, though, the second-overall selection of the 2012 NFL draft, Heisman Trophy winner and the NFL’s newest enigma holding down the quarterback position for the Washington Redskins will evolve into a very special player.

In a few short months, Griffin has solidified himself as a leader determined to develop into the player he is unquestionably capable of being. He hasn’t shied away from taking the reins in D.C., holding offseason workouts back home in Waco, Texas and declaring himself as the team’s leader on more than one occasion.
The rookie carries himself like a veteran and appears as focused if not more than must-watch rookie passer Cam Newton did last season. Nothing rattles him.
“I don’t ever shy away from expectations or people trying to put pressure on me to be great,” Griffin said in an interview with the media, via the Associated Press.
