Robert Griffin III has shown this past college football season that he is one of the most athletic players in the game. During the NFL Scouting Combine, the Baylor Bears' quarterback posted an unofficial time of 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash, and was later clocked at an official time of 4.41. Damn.

As for Andrew Luck, the QB out of Stanford put up an official time of 4.67. Griffin III was the fastest among all quarterbacks and has been the fastest QB since Michael Vick posted a 4.33 a decade ago. Cam Newton had a 4.59 last season.

The fastest player at the combine was Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech. The 6'4" wide receiver had an unofficial time of 4.3 before getting his official at 4.36, just a little faster than RGIII. There's one thing for sure: that second overall pick by the Rams' has just gotten 20 times more valuable.

Take a look at RGIII pull off his 40-yard dash below:

The Cleveland Browns could definitely use that.
