    Nelson doesn't fit our system very well playing in the box/SS

    He's more of a center fielder/true FS and ballhawk

    Griffin is stronger and better in run support

    I've been advocating the Griffin pick for months and while my opinion on grabbing a safety round one changed, I still believe he is a better player than Nelson. He has great speed and can drop back in coverage, but is also an excellent hard hitting tackler who actually led the Longhorns the last two years. Griffin is also a special teams demon, I believe he blocked 8 kicks himself during his career.

    Griffin was absolutely the right pick. Nelson is a system guy... Griffin is a differnce maker. Great first choice.

    I saw on several sites that Griffin is the best in the draft. And plus, I think he will end up being on a Roy Williams level.....GREAT PICK!
