INDIANAPOLIS _ If the Cleveland Browns want to trade up to the second pick or somewhere in that range to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III, then the Baylor quarterback would welcome it.
Griffin said Friday at the NFL Combine, it would be fun to compete with current Browns starter Colt McCoy and would welcome the opportunity to play in Cleveland or any team that wants him for that matter.
“It would be fun to compete with Colt. I played him one year in college and he beat us. Maybe I’d have to go out there and beat him,” he said. “Other than that, it would be an honor to go to Cleveland, to go anywhere. That’s all I can say about that. As far as the team goes, they just need that motivation, they need that inspiration. They’ve got the coaches in place to be successful.”
Asked if he hopes some team, like the Browns, “falls in love” with him during the draft process, the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner said he would welcome that
“I hope somebody falls in love with me other than my fiancé. That’s what you want. As a player you want a team that really wants you,” he said. “Head coach, GM, owner, everybody that really wants you in that place and the players believe in you. That’s what I’m looking forward to. I’m looking forward to making somebody fall in love with me.”
