BIO: Four-year starter used at both corner and safety. All-Conference selection as a senior after 86 tackles and 15 pass defenses. Junior numbers included 68/2/6. Outstanding special-teams player throughout college.
POSITIVES: Physical cornerback with good upside potential. Jams opponents at the line, fluid turning his hips and easily runs downfield with receivers. Quickly breaks to the throw, has a burst of closing speed as well as a hard-hitting style. Active in run defense, attacks ball carriers and shakes the ball loose with jarring hits.
NEGATIVES: Mentally hesitant, slow locating the ball and gives up receptions when he should not. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball.
ANALYSIS: A terrific athlete with good upside, Griffin could start at the next level in the proper system. Best in a zone system or press coverage.
