Scout's Take: Maccagnan on rookie TE Ryan Griffin

Posted May 15, 2013

Texans director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan shares his thoughts on tight end Ryan Griffin, the Texans' 6th-round draft pick out of Connecticut.


Texans director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan reviewed the 2013 NFL Draft with Texans insider Nick Scurfield. In this “Scout’s Take” series, we’ll share his thoughts on each of the Texans’ nine draft picks, from tight end Ryan Griffin in the sixth round to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the first.

TE Ryan Griffin (6th round, 201st overall)
6-6, 247 | Connecticut | Londonderry (N.H.) H.S.

“He’s been a very productive receiver at Connecticut. When we evaluated him, he has a very good size and frame. He is a good athlete. He did not actually go to the Combine, but we actually went to his pro day and (he) had a very, very good pro day. So he was a kid that we liked going through our process. We felt he had the ability physically from a size and stature standpoint to be an effective blocker on the line of scrimmage. He has really good hands when you watched him on tape and a good catching radius and can catch in traffic. He’s a very smooth, fluid athlete that presents a big target underneath when you’re watching him as a short-to-intermediate receiver. He has a nice feel as a route runner. He shows pretty good ability to get open in terms of separating from defenders into and out of his break, and is a good runner after the catch. It was a kid later on in the draft where he still has some aspects of his game he needs to be a little more consistent and develop, but he definitely has the physical tools that excite you as a developmental-type prospect.”
