Robert Griffin III’s statement that he signed with Ben Dogra of Creative Artists Agency (CAA) was anticipated. His decision to wear Barney socks at the press conference where he made his representation announcement, less so. RG III joins a CAA NFL Draft class that is known year-in-and-out to be among, if not the best in the country. Joining RG III as CAA clients eligible to be selected in the 2012 NFL Draft are Janoris Jenkins, Ryan Kalil, and Dontari Poe. There will undoubtedly be many more players who decide to join CAA as clients prior to the start of the NFL Draft.
RG III has shot up draft board in the past few months and certainly benefited from being named the Heisman Trophy Award winner. Not only does he have a great arm and a wonderful set of legs, he will probably test very high on the Wonderlic and be rewarded for the way that he interviews with teams.
RG III and his family did their due diligence when it came to selecting an agency. Reports have stated that they met with at least five agencies recently and involved Baylor’s compliance department in the process. CAA was one of the agencies the Griffins met with and was the ultimate selection of RG III.
