Notes:
Named to the All-Pac-10 Second Team as a junior at USC, prompting him to forego his senior campaign and make himself available for this draft...Griffen appeared in 12 games for the Trojans, accounting for a team-best 45 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks, tying him for the team lead...As a sophomore Griffen lost his way, posting a mere 18 tackles as he was forced to the bench...One of the top players in the state of Arizona in his final year of high school, Griffen arrived at USC expecting to make an immediate impact and he did to the extend of appearing in all 13 games and posting 5.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles...Has all of the attributes one wants in a defensive end, but he needs to be more consistent and committed to his craft.
