  • Where's the love for Everson Griffen's 40?

    Why he's not a first rounder in Scott's mock is beyond me. Is anyone not impressed by a 4.66 time from a 270 lb lineman anymore?

    As a comparison, Sergio Kindle ran a 4.71 while being 20 lbs lighter. Griffen has Shawn Merriman kind of measurables and should be picked in the same range in the draft. He's bigger and faster than Graham and is built more compact than Dunlap while having a better motor.

    I like Griffin a lot and I suspect Scott will include him in the nest mock draft. They guy is big, fast, and has a good motor, He can play 4-3 DE and probobally 3-4 OLB. Personally, I have him rated higher than Dunlap and Piere-Paul and as a mist 1st round pick.

          Probably because some touted him at 4.5, i'm a fan of his though and if Seattle goes to a 3-4, which i've predicted for some time, i wouldnt mind them pulling the trigger on Griffen. Realistically he probably goes 20s-30s.

            Apparently he kind of tanked in his interviews. I'd still expect him between 17 and 26. I don't but the Top 15 talk and I don't think is going invest a pick quite that high on the Trojan product.

              Yea I didn't see him making a lot of plays on the few USC games I got a chance to watch. I believe Mel Kiper's only knock was that he doesn't always play to his measurables. I personally don't know b/c I didn't see enough games.

                Griffen will be a super steal!!!

                He reminds me a lot of Orakpo/Merriman with total scheme diversity;34 OLB, 43 DE/or OLB.

                He's much more fluid and athletic than most draftniks give him credit for. He should go 1st round.

                  That would be scary.

                    What are the knocks on the guy? Was he another Mauluga off the field?

                        He's always had everything you physically want in a DE, but he was inconsistent. He only seemed to show that he had a motor this year, he was getting by on pure physical talent along before finally getting it this year.

                          id think he would be picked up by the saints if he is still around cuz charles grant got cuz, however with the jags bringing in kampman the saints might actually have a choice of DEnds (hopefully)


                          Saints 2014 draft wish list:
                          - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
                          - Corner or Wideout in the first
                          - No reaching
                          - No Kelvin Benjamin

                            Im a big fan of Everson Griffen, wouldnt be at all perturbed if the Ravens took him at 25. I think hes gunna be a stud in a 3-4 at the next level, although it wouldnt shock me to see a 4-3 team like the Falcons take him and play him at the weakside end position. Hes got top notch measurables and skills, just has to put it all together at this point. I like him almost as much and Kindle and Hughes as a 3-4 OLB.

                              I thought he stock was gonna soar after he ran his 40 also. I would mind getting him at the top of the second.
