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 doesnt 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 didnt 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:
I can honestly say I like this one more than the Bonner pick
UCONN is a solid program, Texans double dipped.
Nick Scurfield ‏@NickScurfield 27s
TE Ryan Griffin: 6-6, 261, 4.90. 4-year starter at UConn with 23+ catches every season
We'll, there's the token TE of the Texans draft.
the CBS draft profile compared him to Garrett Graham. Not that this should excite you or anything.
Looks like a good all around prospect to groom.
Garrett Graham is in the final year of his contract.
Tough crowd lol
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.
No-Huddle Series: UConn TE Ryan Griffin
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
