Nick Florence - Baylor

After losing 2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III to the Washington Redskins as the second pick in the NFL draft, Baylor looks towards Nick Florence to fill Griffin’s big shoes. Griffin transformed the Baylor football program into a force and finally gave the Baylor fans something to cheer for. Florence has the pressure of not only living up to the expectations set by Griffin, but also maintaining the new-found hype surrounding Baylor football.

Florence does have some experience, starting seven games as a freshman in 2009 when Griffin was injured. Florence already holds the Bears’ single-game passing record (427 yards).
