Browns' potential future on display Thursday

If you haven't seen Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III play this season, and are wondering if he's good enough for the Browns to potentially select him as their franchise quarterback, Thursday is your lucky day.

Griffin and the Bears play in the Alamo Bowl against Washington on Thursday night. The speedy QB with a big arm hasn't yet declared for the draft, and there are rumors he might return to Baylor for the 2012 season.

Still, Griffin is worth watching, and his play is enticing, even if you're just an average football fan. This season, he threw for 3,998 yards, 36 touchdowns, six interceptions and completed 72.4 percent of his passes. He also rushed for 644 yards and nine more scores. He's 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, runs the 40 in the 4.4s and is an Olympic-ready hurdler.

Plus, all signs point to RG3 being a good kid. He's the total package, and has all the makings of a franchise NFL quarterback, if he declares for the 2012 draft. The Browns should be picking in the top 5 of the first round. RG3 to the Browns could be a reality, if Mike Holmgren and Co. feel he's made for the West Coast offense.

If you are a Browns fan, you know the team desperately needs a franchise QB, so check out RG3 on Thursday night. The Browns had better be watching too.
