Feeling better about Griffin

After my initial disappointment in the Titans’ selection of Michael Griffin as their first draft pick, I’m beginning to become more encouraged.
While I still believe a defensive end first and receiver second were more pressing needs, that wasn’t my gripe against Griffin. I thought then that if the Titans wanted a corner they could have had a true corner and better one from among several still on the board.
I’ve also moved off that position after finding out more about Griffin.
His combine agility tests were impressive with times of 4.10 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle, which was third best among all the defensive backs, and 6.60 seconds in the three-cone drill, which was second best among all the defensive backs.
Titans head scout C.O. Brocato said Griffin can turn his hips and run with a receiver as well as any cornerback in the draft.
He also noted Griffin’s size (6′ 0″, 202 pounds) and said he was going to give Griffin a top grade.
I believe the guy can be a quality corner and be a big help to the Titans for years.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be doing further reviews on the rest of the Titans draft picks.
