INDIANAPOLIS - Robert Griffin III showed Sunday morning he is just as fast on his feet as he was at Friday's news conference.

The Baylor University quarterback posted unofficial times of 4.41 and 4.38 seconds in his two 40-yard dash attempts. The former became his official time.

For an NFL quarterback -- 4.41? That's ridiculously fast. In fact, it's the third-fastest QB time at the Scouting Combine since 2000, behind only Michael Vick's 4.33 in 2000 and Reggie McNeal's 4.40 in 2006.

There are six other speed, agility and strength tests at the combine, which RG3 and the other quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers completed Sunday.

As for the one quarterback rated higher than Griffin, Stanford's Andrew Luck, people rave so much about his passing abilities that they usually fail to take note of his speed, his athleticism or his deft ability as a rusher.

On Sunday, Luck posted unofficial times of 4.66 and 4.59 seconds in the 40. The 4.59 time was the third-fastest unofficial time among all the QBs. His official time was later recorded as 4.67.

Luck rushed for more than 900 yards in his college career, and finished second on the Cardinal team in rushing in 2010 with 400-plus.

Yes, those John Elway comparisons are beginning to make more sense.
