Robert Griffin III: "I'm the Best Quarterback"

New, comments

Think that Stanford QB Andrew Luck might have something to say about that headline? In a recent interview with SI.com, Baylor QB Robert Griffin III said he's the best quarterback in the nation. Seems like a certain soon-to-ex-QB of the Indianapolis Colts said a similar thing when he was up for the NFL Draft coming out of the University of Tennessee.

Peyton Manning warn the Colts that if they ended up taking Washington State QB Ryan Leaf instead of him with the first overall pick, he would make them regret it by beating them for the next fifteen years when he played them. The Colts obviously made the right choice then and plan on making the right choice in Apri when they are expected to select Luck with the first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Griffin told SI.com's Don Banks:

"I hate to talk about myself like that, but if I had to straight up tell a head coach or an owner why they should take me, it's because I'm the best in everything I've done. I'm the most accurate. I have the strongest arm. I may not be the tallest, I may not be the heaviest. But I'm the best quarterback in the nation, and if they pass on me, then I understand. But I'm going to go out and be the best quarterback for somebody else."
