RGIII is NFL’s seventh most-liked player

October 16, 2013

Forbes put together a list of the NFL’s most-liked players, and Robert Griffin III was ranked as the seventh in the league.

Forbes, who used E-Score to rank the players, explained how they narrowed down their list.

“In this case, we’re narrowing the focus to likability and awareness – who do people “like” or “like a lot” among NFL players that register a minimum awareness level of 10% of the public.”

Drew Brees, Aarron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Peyton Manning all came before RGIII on the list. According to Gerry Philpott, the CEO of E-Poll Market Research, the firm behind E-Score, Wilson can thank Griffin for his appearance on the list.

Philpott points out that Wilson probably would have missed the awareness threshold (he wound up sneaking in at 11%) if not for a pair of impressive playoff performances in Washington and Atlanta last January. Beating RG III head-to-head certainly didn’t hurt.

Griffin did beat Andrew Luck, who came in eighth, so he has that going for him. Which is nice.
