Michael Griffin, FS, Texas

Michael Griffin saw most of his action on special teams and some occasional spot duty at safety for his first two years at Texas. Griffin's play during his first two seasons earned him a starting role at safety for the next two seasons. He made the most of his opportunity as a starter, leading the team in tackles for two consecutive seasons. Griffin possesses decent size and speed for his position, but relies on his athletic ability and his knack for being around the football. His ability to read the offense and receivers allows him to be in position to make a play. He is very instinctive on the field and excels at calculating the proper angle to pursue the ball carrier or receiver. Griffin is aggressive on the field and not afraid to press the line of scrimmage against the run. He hits much harder than his size would indicate. His size is not ideal for a safety at the next level, which has drawn some to question his durability against bigger receivers in the NFL. Griffin was an impact player on special teams while at Texas, which could parlay into an addition role for him in the NFL. He is a physical and athletic safety who can support the run and cover the pass downfield. Griffin should expect to hear his name called late in the first round, but don't be surprised if he slips to the second round.
