I voted for Robert Griffin III for the Heisman Trophy, who won the award, this year, and while he is a different player than Denard Robinson, Michigan’s quarterback, I do see parallels.

Robinson figures to go into next season as a leading candidate for the Heisman.

The similarities are that Robinson and Griffin both have extraordinary speed and do their best work out of the spread, although each do take snaps under center regularly. Robinson runs a lot more – over 1,770 yards as a sophomore and 1,100 going into the bowl game this season.
