Von Miller Isn't A Huge Fan Of Robert Griffin III

In 2011, Texas A&M Aggies linebacker Von Miller went No. 2 overall to the Denver Broncos. One year later, former Denver Broncos head coach and current head coach of the Washington Redskins Mike Shanahan traded up for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft for Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III. The former No. 2 pick doesn't believe the future No. 2 pick will be successful (via ProFootballWeekly):

"He can throw the ball pretty well, and he's fast. But if you hit him enough times, he's going to wear down," Miller said of Griffin. "He can run and throw, but I wouldn't put him in that same class as (Michael) Vick, Cam (Newton) or (Josh) Freeman."

In other words, RG3 should be lucky that he doesn't need to face Von Miller on the pro gridiron any time soon.

But it's all in good fashion. Miller is also quoted as saying that he wants Griffin to prove him wrong.
