Robert Griffin III talks Heisman Trophy

IRVING, Texas -- The man who won the 2011 Heisman Trophy award at Baylor, Robert Griffin III, is now a professional and he won't reveal who he would vote for this year.

But Griffin was asked about the presumed favorite Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel.

"I can't disclose my Heisman vote but I've been able to see (some games)," said Griffin III, who plays for the Washington Redskins. "It's funny that I say this, I was able to see the youngster play and he's done a good job that’s a lot coming from a Baylor Bear, so right now its up in the air for me. It's been a difficult year and I've talked to some other Heisman voters, it's been a difficult year for the Heisman, just to who to vote for. It's going to come down to the last couple of weeks, he’s in the talks."

Griffin said he would have like to see the award stay within the Big 12 and that's where Kansas State's Collin Klein comes in.

"He's a Big 12 quarterback it would be nice to keep it in the Big 12," Griffin said. "But like I said, you don’t know what could happen. My team lost a few games but we won six straight down the stretch and did some great things in prime-time games. You never know what’s going to happen, Klein might end up winning it, Manti Te'o might. It's up in the air."
