From MSNBC: A HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE BACK in college, he slipped to the fourth round because he’s 5-7, 195. That doesn’t bother the Broncos because 2002 offensive rookie of the year running back Clinton Portis also weighs about 195 pounds. What’s more important is Griffin has the timing and patience required in Denver’s ground game.
After the Broncos’ recent minicamp, Griffin’s quickness was the talk of the locker room.
Portis is unhappy with his contract, but he is expected to show up for training camp. If he doesn’t, the Broncos have another option.
