Summary

With so many teams using three man fronts these days, three down defensive ends in a 4-3 scheme have become a valuable commodity. Everson Griffin is one of those players. He is a stout run defender who can hold ground at the point of attack and has developed into one of the league's best pass rushers. Griffen is a perfect fit in Mike Zimmer's aggressive scheme. He recorded a career best in both tackles (39) and sacks (12) in 2014 when he was the number six defensive end. He followed it up with 34 tackles and 10.5 sacks in fifteen games last season. Barring injury Griffen is a safe bet to once again grace the top twelve and he may find his way into the top five. (May 27)
