NEW YORK — Robert Griffin III had other things on his mind this weekend other than the NFL draft — like winning the Heisman Trophy.

"We had an agreement that the one thing we wanted to do was stay focused so (Baylor) could finish well," said his father, Robert Griffin Jr. "The draft boards are great, but once he makes a decision, everyone will know. Right now he told me, 'All I want to do is focus on Washington.'"
