KC Joyner: 10 reasons why Robert Griffin III could be drafted No. 1

+

Reason No. 3: RG3 had better stats when not throwing to his top target Some have argued that the reason Griffin III had better downfield numbers is because he was able to throw to Kendall Wright, a speed merchant whom Mel Kiper and Todd McShay both have listed as a late first-rounder in their most recent mock drafts. The issue in taking this tack is that Griffin III actually had better vertical numbers when throwing to someone other than Wright last year. RG3's vertical numbers on passes to Wright: 45 targets, 693 yards, 15.4 vertical YPA (VYPA) RG3's vertical numbers on passes to other players: 70 targets, 1,146 yards, 16.4 VYPA Luck was the exact opposite in that his vertical totals dropped off dramatically when not throwing to his best vertical target (tight end Coby Fleener).
