Everson Griffen, DE - Southern Cal

Pick made by TheAngelsColts:

Flashes a quick burst off the snap. Has a quick counter move to spin back inside. Must use his hands more consistently to break free from blockers once engaged. Uses rip and swim moves, but neither is effective enough to be a go-to move in the NFL. Good use of strength for the bull rush. Has a good closing burst when he has an open lane. Struggles locating the football. Is so concerned with getting upfield that he will run right by the action on inside running plays...Appears to have the bulk and strength to hold up at the point of attack, but too often is engulfed and pushed back. Quick enough laterally to extend the edge. Rides the tackle outside and keeps contain. Good enough lateral agility to play in space and handle the pitch against the option...Flashes an explosive first step, but is largely inconsistent in his initial quickness off the snap...Good weight-room strength, but it doesn't necessarily translate to the field. Plays with leverage, but is inconsistent in his ability to hold up at the point...One of his more intriguing assets. Has good balance and agility to break down in space and make the secure stop against elusive athletes. Brings his hips through the tackle, leading to some impressive hits. Good strength for the drag-down tackle...Some around the USC program question Griffen's work ethic and willingness to do the little things necessary to become great.

Why Everson Griffen? Well although I took [Ndamukong] Suh who is a DT he will not be moving over in the 4-3 scheme and DT and DE are there two biggest needs and after that it is WR and S. There are definitely some great players on the board however with 2 picks in the top 15 in this round I feel that going DE with someone who can easily be a 1st round pick is not a reach. Playing along side a top player in the Draft in Suh will have him an advantage as Suh will draw some Double teams and you can’t double two people. I thought about going WR or S but in this draft those positions seem to be falling a lot especially WR. To me there are two 1st round talent S and probably 2 WR as well that will never be taken in the first just because of the depth of the draft and the fact that this season most teams are focusing on the Lines.
