Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 50 tackles (three for loss) with three pass breakups in 2017. Led the Yellow Jackets with 82 tackles (five for loss) and added two interceptions and three PBUs as a junior. Started one game in 2015 and made 21 tackles. Made one start as a redshirt freshman and posted 15 tackles, one interception and two pass breakups.
Pos: 
Nice-sized safety with average speed. Instinctive, remains disciplined with assignments and keeps the action in front of him. Displays a solid burst of closing and recovery speed and plays faster than his 40 time. Plays heads-up football, reads the quarterbacks eyes in coverage and does a good job recognizing routes in zone. Wraps up tackling and brings opponents down in the open field.
Neg: 
Does more chasing than playmaking in coverage. Lacks great range.
Analysis: 
Griffin is a hard-working safety who plays within himself and the system but lacks the pure athletic skills for the next level. He could back up in a zone system if he plays well on special teams.
