Analysis

STRENGTHS: Griffin passes the eye test with good size for the position. He has quick hands and length to extend and snatch the ball out of the air, using very good focus to adjust to off-target throws. Griffin does a nice job locating and going up to get it to bring it down, securing over-the-middle catches and showing natural ball skills.

He has good initial quickness and route agility, doing a nice job along the sideline to get his feet inbounds.


Griffin is an aggressive blocker in the trenches, blocking more physical and mean than several of his offensive line teammates at Connecticut. He gives up his body for the catch or block and plays with very good toughness, but also showing patience and discipline.


Griffin has a versatile skill-set, lining up inline, in the slot and in the backfield. He played on one of the worst-ranked offenses in FBS the past two seasons, but still managed to be productive as the only player with more than 1 receiving score in 2012.


WEAKNESSES: Griffin has a leaner-than-ideal frame and has room to add some more bulk. He is aggressive and tough, but lacks overpowering strength to always sustain blocks long enough. Griffin is more of a possession target and doesn't consistently do enough after the catch. He is still developing as a route runner and plays a little tight at times. Griffin has never been overly productive and didn't lead the team in catches in any of his four seasons in college.


COMPARES TO: Garrett Graham, TE, Houston Texans - Although overshadowed by Owen Daniels in Houston's offense, Graham is a reliable receiving threat who also gives good effort as a blocker. Griffin is probably more of a No. 2 TE like Graham, but can also step up and start if needed.

STRENGTHS: Passes the eye test…quick hands and length to extend, using very good focus to adjust to off-target throws…nice job locating and going up to get it to bring it down with natural ballskills…good initial quickness and route agility…aggressive blocker in the trenches, playing more disciplined, physical and mean than several OL prospects...tough as nails and gives up his body for the catch or block…managed to be productive for an inconsistent offense and spotty QB play in college.

WEAKNESSES: Leaner-than-ideal frame and has room to add some more bulk and muscle…aggressive and tough, but lacks overpowering strength to sustain blocks long enough…more of a possession target and doesn’t consistently create enough after the catch…still developing as a route runner and plays a little tight and mechanical at times...was never overly productive in college and didn’t lead the team in catches in any of his four seasons in college…only 10 career TDs in 36 starts.

SUMMARY: Was set to play collegiate basketball before New Hampshire and Connecticut offered him a football scholarship...lacks overpowering strength as a blocker, but stays tenacious and square to hold up in pass pro and as a run blocker, earning praise from the coaching staff for his scheme versatility…strong hands and focus to catch everything thrown his way, making smooth adjustments and lining up everywhere on the offense…reliable target w ho projects as a No. 2 TE in the NFL.

Good blocking TE.
Also I like this play for a TE:

UCONN is a solid program, Texans double dipped.

the CBS draft profile compared him to Garrett Graham. Not that this should excite you or anything. :pop:

Looks like a good all around prospect to groom.

If the trend continues, GG will grab a few touchdowns this year and be an effective enough cog in our offense for some other team to offer him a nice contract, and every 2 years we will just plug in late round TE's to take that position

Nice article on the young man.............with lots of interesting in-game screen shots to illustrate his play.

Don't know where Scurfield's getting his weight. He is listed at ~220 everywhere I've seen?

There is tulane QB in the draft around that weight, but I have not seen the TE anywhere under 255

There is a QB by the same name. Here is a site with the TE at 261 - Link

Thanks, you guys are right. Obviously much more appropriate weight for a TE.

I accept that scenario
