There are statues made of stone, bronze and other metals but have you ever seen one made of barbecue chicken? If you head to the Subway sandwich shop in Manhattan you can see one that's been made of Heisman winner Robert Griffin III, appropriately titled RG IV. RG III is the latest celeb to endorse Subway. The 3 foot tall statue is made up of 30 pounds of grilled barbeque chicken.


It's all part of the hype going on prior to the NFL draft which starts Thursday night with the first round and continues Friday and Saturday. The former Baylor quarterback, RG III, is expected to go as one of the first two picks. He's thought to be headed to the Washington Redskins. The other top pick, Andrew Luck of Stanford, will go to the Indianapolis Colts.

Griffin tells the Associated Press it's pretty "cool" but he's not sure how much it actually looks like him. Go here to check it out. I'm not sure of the favor but it's an unusual gimmick.
