Robert Griffin III sat down in front of cameras and reporters today to confirm rumors that he'd decided to forgo his senior season and enter the 2012 NFL Draft, and he did it wearing Barney the Dinosaur socks—because he "loves everybody." It's a different look from the Superman socks he sported at the Heisman ceremony in December, but it's also the perfect swap. Barney?!? This kid is so goddamn charming he might even steal Tebow's Jockey endorsement by draft time.
