Griffin's Impact on our Offense
 
Assuming we draft Griffin, how will it impact our offense this upcoming season, scheme and personnel wise

With RG3 ability, the offense has the potential to get in the endzone and improve greatly on the 18 points average per game from last season. In college, RG3 has shown not only the potential to run for first downs when pass plays break down and he's unable to find an open receiver, but he has the ability to rush for long gains and outrun defenses all the way to the end zone. Even on the NFL level, expect to see a lot of that from him. Also unlike Rex Grossman, our other RG3, expect Griffin III to not throw a lot of INTs. He only threw 17 interceptions in 4 years at Baylor. In addition to seeing the offense run a lot smoother, I expect to see a lot less turnovers.

I expect to see our run game have a big impact this season between Helu, Royster, and Griffin. Even if he doesn't run that much defenses have to respect the threat of the run, especially with him being the dual weapon that he is. And I have confidence that if teams force him to beat them with the pass, then he can step up and do that too. I don't expect our coaches to throw the whole playbook at him early, but I do expect them to teach him at his own pace.

Whether that's fast or slow remains to be seen, but he seems like a smart kid from all impressions I've gotten so far. I think the speed of the NFL game might suprise him at some point, but he's got speed of his own so I don't think we'll see the Beck deer-in-headlights look we saw last season. Right now I don't think he'll have a Cam Newton type season, but I do expect an above-average rookie season from him. With any luck hopefully we'll be right around .500 at the end of the season, and he could possibly suprise with a 10 win season if his learning curve is minimal and he comes out slinging.

just the whole tempo should be greatly improved. we didnt get a lot of delay penalties last season. but it did seem like the play clock was always inside 5 seconds

I think Griffin's impact on the offense will be limited to how healthy our offensive line as currently fielded stays. And then subsequently how he adjusts when 1-2 of them inevitably get injured. If he can prolong plays after the pocket breaks down, then the wideouts will certainly benefit.

I predict a very good year for our tight ends.

I thought starting the play with less than 5 seconds was one of the pacing goals of an offense? Controls the clock, and keeps their offense off the field.

We should actually have an offense for once. I'd say around 24 ppg

my school of thought is getting to the line, so adjustments can be made. and keeps defenses on their heels, as far as substitutions. and with RG ball control is out. throws a beautiful long ball. should be more quick strike scores

Fewer turnovers + greater playmaking ability + greater big play potential = more opportunity to score. And keeps the defense off the field longer.

Lets say we drafted RG3 yesterday.
Would you trade him straight up for Cam newton?

No, ceiling for pocket passers is higher than run first quarterbacks.

No way! Cam Newton is Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III is Robert Griffin III. These are two young quarterbacks who have the potential to be great in the future. That's like asking if the Rams and the Colts should execute a trade by swapping Andrew Luck and Sam Bradford? No, because it's needless. RG3 and Newton are each special in their own way.

I would with hold judgement until I see how RGIII's talents are utilized.

Re: Griffin's Impact on our Offense
 
Echoing a couple of things said earlier here, his biggest impact IMO will be on the running game. With a QB that can threaten the edge, the backside end must stay at home as well as the backside LB on some reads. This allows the backside tackle to get out on the MLB which can open up huge cutback lanes for the back. Helu has the potential to break off some huge runs if he can get to the second level quickly and is one on one with a safety.

Once the running game is productive, that opens up the play action and boot action passing game, which Griffin excels in. With his accuracy and deep ball arm, the opportunities for big plays should be plentiful.

Interesting article/analysis on RGIII. Never heard of the Lewin Career Forecast before, but Griffin just scored the highest mark EVER.
