Summary: If the Raiders pass up on Griffen in the first round, then he could very well fall to the second round. I have watched a LOT of tape on Griffen and the tape just isn't there to justify a top-20 draft pick. He's a soft football player and I question his love of the game with his physical tools. Griffen seems like a boom-or-bust prospect at the next level, and I'm not leaning towards "boom."
Player Comparison: Robert Geathers. Griffen doesn't have his motor, but he's an average defensive end with good athleticism. I see a similar career for Griffen.
Mike glennon got overpaid, no doubt. However, he's basically on a 1 year prove it deal. The Bears have no intention of spending all that cap money so why not take a flier on a guy like Glennon. And nobody wants to go to Chicago to play on a @[email protected] team, in @[email protected] weather and pay @[email protected] taxes. The bears have to overpay for free agents.
@Bac151 Thank you for pointing this out. I was going off of the fact that there were two charges, and working from the reason the second was dropped, the accuser stating she didn't want the media attention and settled out of court apparently. But you are right he wasn't arrested
