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.

Elway is the only player to throw for over 3,000 yards and rush for over 200 yards in seven straight seasons (1985–1991). He could do it all. Averaged 4.4 yards per rush, with 33 rushing TD's. That's dual threat my friends, even if you have trouble admitting it.

I'm done with this topic. I just hate when people try to tell me I'm wrong, when I know that I'm right.

Now you're dismissed!!!

Wrong Johnnymc24! Elway ran in the 4.5 range coming out of college which was considered amazing for a QB in that day and age. Cosign, on not knowing what a player will do in the NFL. The draft is a crapshoot. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...



And I'm not going anywhere..., LOL!!!

Clear the man juice from your eyes, or learn how to read! Are your parents brother, and sister? Show me where I stated that RGIII is underrated. I clearly was talking about Andrew Luck. You are really sad. Go get your mom to explain things for you before you post again. It's obvious that you don't understand basic english.

Can all of you please change te subject? NONE of you know who will do what in the NFL. as far as Elway being a "duel" (spelling doesnt count I guess) threat.....he wasnt credited with being fast, he could extend plays...there is a big difference. Ben R isn't fast, he extends plays. (and I'm not talking about the extenze that you guys take to make your manhood bigger either)

Now, you're all dismissed.

Johnnymc24, I just point out the obvious when dealing with idiots. And it's not ok to joke about anyone's heritage/race in my opinion. I don't deal in race. I'm way past that. Right is right, and wrong is wrong, period! I take people for who they are. And who still uses words like colored anyway? Now that was funny...

Once again, you stuck your foot in your mouth moron. I was talking about Andrew Luck, who didn't win the Heisman. See, I knew that you were clueless, and don't watch football. Someone please save this tool from himself!!! LOL....
