To anywhere that wants a beast.

I think he can fit into a 3-4 or 4-3 team.

He and Romeus are my two favorite junior pass rushers...would love either on the Jets.

Top 15 pick as a DE or OLB. I think he will have a Dwight Freeney type impact of w/e team he is on. Love to have him hear in Oakland

I think unless you are going to use him like Dallas uses Ware (nothing wrong with that) then he's not suited for a 3-4 OLB. Looks to me a 4-3 DE.

I would agree that he's a Top 15 pick and it could be to either a 4-3 team or 3-4 team. Griffen's too good a player and too exceptional an athlete to fall very far in a league always looking for the next versatile pass rusher.

Back to college. Pete Carroll is really good at getting his underclassmen to return to USC and the idea of contending for a National Championship with a more experienced team next year will be hard to ignore.

And if they don't he whines and bitches about it during a press conference.

Once the measurements are taken, Everson will skyrocket. He has the production, he has the triangle numbers, looks terrific on film. He will go in the top 10.

He's quickly becoming one of my favorite players for the Jaguars. The Jaguars are expected to draft from 12-18, where Griffen is widely projected to go right now. Griffen can play both 4-3 and 3-4, which allows us to keep experimenting with the 3-4 while keeping our star pass rusher on the field.

Hm you can afford to throw Groves under the bus/use him in the 3rd rusher role but Derrick Harvey must be salvaged. And didn't you get the Tebow memo? :D

His salary will probably be more at USC next year than the first year of his rookie contract anyway so I don't blame him.

Seconded. I'm pretty sure he's been struggling with an ankle injury recently but when he's healthy he's one of the most dominant players in the country. Before the season started I thought he had out grown being an OLB but his quickness and ability in the open field is still very good (not to mention a ton of experience lining up there at USC). Probably in my top 4/5 players in the draft.

What's not to like? He's a freak athletically who has shown the ability to dominate.

Showed that he can (consistently) be effective this year (opposed to last year where he was shaky and got benched). Stocky build at 6'2.5, get's great leverage, and is very adept in bullrushing. Visually (and It's been said more than once) he looks something like Dwight Freeny. His future is at DE (4-3). He can play 3-4 olb, and has held his own as a 3-4 DE at times, but he's a 4-3 DE.

Immature, and not the sharpest tool in the shed. He's got a good heart though, and won't cause any trouble though.

Yeah, he did that all of...one time.
