In each of the past three seasons, the winner of that year’s Heisman Trophy left another season of college football eligibility on the table for a shot at the NFL draft the next year.
Robert Griffin III, the 2011 winner of the Heisman Trophy, has another year of eligibility remaining “thanks” to a season-ending injury in 2009 that earned him another year courtesy of the NCAA.
The question is, should RGIII use that extra year of eligibility to bulk up his draft résumé, or should the Baylor quarterback strike while the stiff-armed iron is hot and bolt for the NFL?
I know how Cam Newton, who came from a spread system that simply doesn’t work in preparing a QB for the NFL, would vote. The question is, how would you vote?
Say it below. Vote. And don’t be shy, either in your votes or in your comments.
