Default Kesley Griffin is a monster.

watched the Arky game again to evaluate. That drive in the 4th quarter when they had those two big runs and they should have scored that TD, we had just basically emptied the bench on that drive. I saw a number 94 in there and looked up the number, Kelsey Griffin. On the long Williams run the dude shoved the guard into the backfield, he couldn't get to the runner but he tore through everyone in his path and got on his horse and chased the runner the entire 45 yards, all 300lbs of him. The next play they set up a wall to left side of the field and pretty much blocked every single player, Kesley got through that wall too but by then it was too late. He is going to challenge for the starting spot next year I am not saying he gets it but he has a good shot.

In HS, Griffin was a little lighter, but had near DE speed even though he's a natural DT. I agree that he should be a really good one.

No point in him red shirting unless he's injured. A player like him won't be around for more than 4 years. He'll be in the NFL for sure.

Pretty sure he's played a little in every game this year. Want to say he was credited with a sack (or maybe a half-sack) against UNC.

No, he's playing because most likely Quarles will be gone along with Clowney/Sutton. So why not let him play and gain experience?

Kelsey was a great pick up for our program and anyone who is motivated to stomp some puppies is always welcomed in my book.

Default Re: Kesley Griffin is a monster.

I love this kid. Out of all the recruits we got for 2013 griffin was my favorite pickup. Yes even more so than bryant or williams. I followed his recruiting and saw all his highlights and wow is this dude a beast. Really wish that keith bryant also came here instead of fsu, these two as a tandem would have been super nasty in the future. But Abu will do just fine!

He'll get a lot of snaps this weekend if Surratt can't go.

Default Re: Kesley Griffin is a monster.

Yeah he was making an impact in his first game in college football, so I was impressed with that. I know a lot of this stuff can change and there is plenty of time left, but I would have expected quarels stock to have fallen off big time from last season. I don't like it when our guys go early as obvious best-case late second rounders. That's just not a good thing. Either way, we should be able to field a solid DT rotation next season with surratt, dixon, griffin and the other guys. I wish they would let dixon 44 play some more over in Chaz' spot. For all this talk about using the bench, the DL coach doesn't seem to be applying it. We need some more blowouts to get the back-up DE's out there, if for no other reason so they can get slammed around a bit as offseason motivation in workouts.
