DE Everson Griffen Scouting Report

DE Everson Griffen, Southern Cal
Pos. Rank: 5 Grade: 1st-2nd Round Height: 6-3 1/2 Weight: 273 40: 4.65 Year: 3-Jr.

The Good: Athletic defensive line prospect with a nice degree of upside potential. Plays with terrific pad level, fluid moving in every direction of the field, and makes plays laterally or in a straight line. Loses little momentum when he must immediately alter his angle of attack, displays a burst of speed, and shows ability in pursuit. Covers a lot of area on the field and makes a lot of athletic plays.

The Bad: Marginally productive the past three seasons. Slow locating the ball and not very instinctive. Lacks great power and is handled at the point of attack.

The Verdict: Griffen is a solid defensive lineman yet a prospect whose play on the field does not match his headlines. Needs a lot of development in his game, and he really must improve the ability to read and react to the action quicker before he'll ever move into a starting lineup at the next level.
