Looks like he has a shot to make a roster.

All the best for RG to make a roster! There are much worse jobs than a QB clipholder in the NFL. :-D

cbssports.com has him rated at the 11th bet QB in the draft and going in the 6-7 round.
Saints don't have a 7th rounder and I don't they will use their 6th rounder on him.
If he becomes an UDFA; then, I certainly think he gets a call from Loomis.

Griffin's mother is a Cowboys fan so perhaps he lands in Dallas? Seriously?

That's all he needs - to be mentored by Romo! :roll:

You might actually do some real reporting and mention that his college coach was a Saints coach a year ago, which might provide a legit connection.

He'll be drafted in round 5 or 6.

I hope you are right. He seems to be climbing the board a little. I worry because we've had several guys in recent years projected to be 6-7th rounders give or take and then they end up not getting picked. But then, none of them were QBs, so that may have an effect.

The number of players projected to be 6-7th rounders is dramatically higher than the number of 6-7th round picks.

Yeah I know. Thus the concern over RGs chances. It's not that he isn't worthy, it's more of a numbers game. but i think GSx is right, he will pull through.

If Griffin is drafted, will he be the first Toledo recruit to be drafted? I think he would be, but my usually stellar memory fails me on this one.

Ryan Griffin was just drafted...too bad it was TE Ryan Griffin from UConn. For half a second I got excited.

His sister has tweeted:

I notice he didn't get drafted. He's good enough to be on someone's roster.

It's a really good spot for him. He'll learn from the best and the Saints have room for him, to let him grow and improve.

Obviously being a free agent is better than a late round draftee because the player can choose where he wishes to work but what about pay. Basic economics tells me that some free agents wanted by multiple teams should get "bid up" so that their comp exceeds that of late round draft slottees.

Does that happen or does NFL successfully enforce pay caps on undrafted free agents from college as well?
