FORT WORTH, Texas — Robert Griffin III looks forward to sitting down and talking with NFL executives and coaches during the NFL combine.

While Griffin set plenty of records with big numbers while becoming Baylor's first Heisman Trophy winner, he says he's excited about explaining the offense to pro teams. He says it's not as simple as many people made the potent high-scoring spread offense to be and is based on many pro principles.

Griffin, who accepted the Davey O'Brien Award on Monday, says he will run the 40-yard dash and do some of the drills at the combine.

He likely won't throw in Indianapolis this week, and instead save that for his pro day March 21, which he moved up a day to avoid going the same day as Andrew Luck's pro day.
