  • USC: Everson Griffen to enter 2010 draft, Allen Bradford stays

    http://sports.espn.go.com/los-angele...ory?id=4773500

    SAN FRANCISCO -- USC junior defensive end Everson Griffen said after Saturday night's 24-13 Emerald Bowl victory over Boston College that he will skip his senior season to enter the 2010 NFL Draft.

    "I've known for a while," Griffen said.

    Griffen, who has rare speed for a 6-foot-3, 280-pounder, is viewed in most draft projections as a late-first or early-second round selection.

    "I'm ready," Griffen told ESPN.com's Joe Schad. "I know it's the right decision because I've talked it over with my coaches. I will bring speed, a pass rush and the ability to stop the run."

    Griffen injured his ankle in Saturday's game and watched much of it from the sideline.

    "I think I was prepared for this game, but stuff happens and I've just got to bounce back and be strong," Griffen said.

    He made the All-Pac-10 second team this season, recording 44 tackles and a team-high eight sacks.

    Junior receiver Damian Williams, who was the game's offensive MVP with 189 receiving yards, said he is undecided about whether he will return for his senior season. Williams said he will fly home to Arkansas Sunday and talk it over with his family.

    Most observers expect Williams to enter the upcoming draft.

    Junior running back Allen Bradford said he will return.

    The more pass rushers the better.

      Sadly it doesnt help where he will be drafted though. His combine is HUGE to him after a somewhat disappointing bowl game.

        <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
        <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

          Glad to see Allen Bradford staying; I like what I saw last night.

            He'll look good at the combine. Disappears at times but great potential.

              I'm not surprised by this decision. The decision that will truly impact us is Damian Williams' for our young QB's sake. We could be losing a **** load of talent on offense and we all saw what that did to our defense this season. I would respect him if he came out though, because I don't feel we have legitimate NC aspirations with an inconsistent sophomore QB surrounded by an inexperienced supporting cast.

                  Most likely won't be available for Arizona when we pick but I would love to have him, he just helps the depth of the class

                        I dont think he would make a good 3-4 DE. Maybe a 3-4 OLB and 4-3 DE.
                        I would say he looks like a great prospect, but Frostee still has me bitter on USC DE's. Though I wouldnt completely upset with him in stripes.

                          Still waiting on Lawrence Jackson too. Would agree not a 3-4 DE.

                              Expect both Griffen and Williams to go in the middle of the 2nd.
