Overview:

Griffin finished his career at Central Florida, where he played in 38 career games, had 163 tackles, 30.0 for loss, 17.0 sacks, 2 interceptions, 13 pass breakups, 4 forced fumbles, and 5 fumbles recovered. He has good size height wise, he has good speed, and is a tackling machine. He is very relentless on defense, and a ferocious defender. He is also a tough nosed player, a hard hitter, and a solid cover linebacker. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. On the other hand, while he has good speed, he does not have elite linebacker speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view Griffin as a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
