Heisman Trophy winner and second overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft Robert Griffin III is struggling in his first NFL training camp. According to a report on CBSsports.com, Griffin is holding onto the ball too long and making bad coverage reads, both of which are signs that the rookie is having some trouble with the new offensive scheme.
The report did note that Griffin has looked good outside the pocket and has impressed with his accuracy while on the run.
Fantasy owners thinking of taking Griffin late as a starting quarterback may want to consider taking another Quarterback as well in case the former Baylor star struggles early in the season. There is no doubting his talent, however, it may be a little premature to assume that Griffin will be a viable fantasy starter out of the gate.
