NBA: So you want to be a sports wagerer...huh?? You had better have a cast iron stomach, because if you let it, sports capping can ruin your health. Case in point, with about half the third period over...the Thunder, yes the Thunder are up by 7. Same club that a couple of days ago got DESTROYED by this same Spurs club.....Absolutely NUTS. We will see,...but Damn.
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.
