2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SHAQUEM GRIFFIN: Central Florida, 6003 227 4.46. Two-year starter from St. Petersburg, FL. A unique player who lost his hand to a birth defect. Despite this he has been an outstanding and productive player during his career. Played on the edge both backed off and on the line. Explosive player with outstanding speed, change of direction, and a non-stop motor. Rarely lets a blocker get a clean shot at him as he plays with power and is quick to avoid or slip a block. Good chase player showing range and incredible closing speed in pursuit. Can chase across the field and make plays in the backfield. Explosive into tackles with the ability to drop a ball carrier in his tracks. Has an upfield burst as a blitzer with the ability to get around the corner and close. Reads pass well and takes good pass drops. Has good zone awareness and breaks quickly on the throw. Shows the ability to match up to backs and slot receivers. Quick reacting to route breaks and the speed to cover up the field. Powerful blockers can give him some trouble. Is prone to broken tackles if he isn’t squared up or chasing to the sideline. Has to be precise not to overrun or under run a tackle as that’s where a miss can occur. Prone to cut blocks as he plays a little tall at times and blockers take advantage of his aggression by going low. An elite athlete that teams will have to decide whether he can play in their scheme. His limitation can affect his draft status. Has been outstanding on cover teams. A team may see him as a special team and sub-package player. His cover skill could give him a shot as a hybrid. 2017 stats: 74 T, 13.5 TFL, 7 sacks, 3 PBU, 9 QBH, 2 FF, 1 INT, 1 FR (1 TD). Edge speed:left 2.00, right 1.94. OSR:5/17. Fourth/fifth round.
