  • Everson Griffen Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths:
  • Good size
  • Very quick first step
  • Nice speed
  • Tons of experience at rush backer
  • Comfortable in coverage
  • Fluid athlete
  • Great in pursuit
  • Rangy
  • Anticipates snap count very well
  • Plays with nice balance
  • Very good agility
  • Plays with great pad level
  • Very high upside
  • Can play 4-3 DE or 3-4 OLB
  • Hard hitter



    Weaknesses:
  • Highly inconsistent
  • Never really dominates
  • Lacks a pass rush repertoire
  • Lacks awareness - struggles to diagnose
  • Below-average instincts
  • Unimpressive motor
  • Underproductive
  • Very raw prospect
  • Poor hand use
  • Should be more powerful
  • Might lack some leadership
  • Doesn't play a high percentage of snaps

    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.
