Heisman Winner Robert Griffin III Earns NCAA Football 13 Cover

Former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III will star on the cover of NCAA Football 13, publisher EA Sports said today.

The Heisman Trophy winner and projected #2 NFL draft pick will join one of eight other athletes on the game's box art. EA said in a press release that starting March 12, fans will be able to vote on Facebook for Griffin's partner:

The candidates include former University of Southern California running back Marcus Allen, former Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie, former The Ohio State University running back Eddie George, former The University of Michigan wide receiver Desmond Howard, former Oklahoma State University running back Barry Sanders, former University of Georgia running back Herschel Walker, former Florida State University quarterback Charlie Ward and former University of Houston quarterback Andre Ware.

I'm voting for Doug Flutie in hopes that the picture is just him dropkicking Griffin.
