Alfred Morris feels 'faster, stronger'

The accolades keep on coming for Robert Griffin III.

After an electrifying rookie campaign that launched him into a unique stratosphere of NFL superstardom with fans all across the country, Griffin’s latest honor came from his peers. The NFL Network ranked the Redskins quarterback No.15 on their “Top 100 Players of 2013”, a list voted on by players around the league.

Griffin’s ranking marks the highest for any Redskins player since the network began the list in 2011, as well as the highest by any rookie. Immediately after his place on the list was revealed, Griffin reacted on Twitter.

RG3 won the AP’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award in 2012 after throwing for 3200 yards, 20 touchdowns and 6 interceptions to go along with 815 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns while leading the Redskins to their first NFC East title since 1999. 

Griffin was the fourth and final Redskins player to appear on the list. Others named included Trent Williams (99), London Fletcher (86), and Alfred Morris (64).
