RG3 sent a warning to NFL owners after Deion Sanders proclaimed that Colorado football stars Shedeur Sanders, Travis Hunter, and Shilo Sanders will have power over where they end up being selected during the 2025 draft: the power shift is coming, and you better be ready for it.

"The power shift is coming, so everyone needs to buckle up,” Griffin said during the March 25 edition of ESPN's "Get Up" (h/t Cowboys Country). “All these college coaches have been running to the NFL because they’re ‘upset’ that the college players have a little bit more power and a little bit more say.

"Well, guess what? Those same kids that they’re running away from are gonna be the ones coming up the ranks and coming into the NFL in the next few years. So, Deion’s saying that either Shedeur or Travis are going to pull an Eli doesn’t surprise me at all. Without the players, all of these sports leagues are nothing. This is the player empowerment age, and you’re seeing it come into the NFL.”

Deion Sanders warns Colorado football stars 'going to be an Eli' at 2025 NFL draft

Coach Prime was the first to fire a warning to all 32 NFL owners by claiming that his sons and Hunter are "going to be an Eli" at the 2025 NFL draft.

"All this is subjective because I know where I kind of want them to go," Sanders said (58:55 mark) (h/t Bleacher Report). "And let's not forget Shilo (Sanders). But I know where I want them to go. There's certain cities where it ain't going to happen. ...It's going to be an Eli [Manning]."

Perhaps there will be no Eli Manning-esque trade demands from the Sanders family's youngest sons or Coach Prime's highest-ranked recruit since Deion is already threatening drama. Sanders may be making a "King's Gambit" move on the chessboard.

And when it comes to getting what he wants of his sons (Hunter included there), Coach Prime may be getting his checkmate with his way-too-early warning flare.
