BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 126/4/10. Blocked four kicks as a junior and accumulated 124 tackles.
POSITIVES: Explosive safety who is an intimidating force in center field. Diagnoses the action, fires up the field in run defense and aggressively lays his shoulders into ball handlers. Displays outstanding sideline-to-sideline range and gets to the flanks to help.
NEGATIVES: Has tackles broken. Occasionally shows some hesitation to his game. At times is too quick moving up the field.
ANALYSIS: A rangy center fielder with a complete game, Griffin offers starting potential at safety and could be a dominant special-teams player.
