I know Eric will have the scoop. From what I was told by Kelly, before he departed for FSU, and Roof. Griffin is a beast. His injury set him back one year, and of you can recall, he was set to play as a true freshman. Roof felt like they were deep at Safety and thin at corner. After evaluating the possible players to transition , Roof felt like Griffin would be a good field side corner because of his ability to stop the run and his speed. The problem no one considered was that Griffin never played corner. I am sure you know that corner is a position where you're on a island all by yourself. It takes a lot more skills than Safety. Griffin had to learn the position. Another setback was the move was the move from Safety to Corner was made a couple of weeks before the season began. Factor in the coaching changes and you see it slowed the process of Griffin learning the position. No disrespect to Coach Speed but he is more of a LB/S coach. Not really a corner coach who can train and challenge the corners. Griffin has been working with DJ White as well as a couple of NFL corners. He will get tested by teams this year but he will be ok. Sorry for jumping in Eric. Lol
You answered it better than I could have! Thanks!
The staff is still high on Griffin...he has all the tools.
