Let’s take a closer look at one of most intriguing prospects of the New Orleans Saints: Ryan Griffin. Westlake Village, California is his hometown where he was born on November 17, 1989. He spent his high school years at the Chaminade College Preparatory School in California where he brought the team to the state semifinals as a junior. After his senior year there he moved to Louisiana for his collegial studies at Tulane University; he recently graduated with a major in business management. In four years he appeared in 42 games with the Green Waves, started 39 of them and set a number of school records.

Curtis Johnson, Griffin’s head coach at Tulane and former Saints’ wide receiver coach, was recently interviewed by Larry Holder, Saints beat writer for NOLA.com: Johnson told the journalist that Ryan is very smart, talented and has what it takes (i.e. sensational footwork, quick release and ability to anticipate throws) to fit perfectly in a West Coast type of offense. He added that Mickey Loomis went to a couple of games to take a look at him and loved what he saw; Sean Payton was there at their Pro Day, asking him a lot of questions about Griffin and was very impressed. “He’s a perfect fit for this team” he concluded.

I would say we do quite well with QBs coming off of shoulder injury's.

Considering every team passed on him 5 or more times in the draft. He is probably not on anyone's radar and may have no choice. If he doesn't there will be 5 more rookie classes to choose from.

2 or 3 good preseasons and teams will come calling, just as they did with Chase Daniel.

Perhaps PS for 2 seasons, then actual back-up for a couple more, then maybe we can talk about him being the man.

Has any elite QB ever waited 5 years for their turn to start?

Not 5.

Rogers got his shot in his 4th season. He went 3 seasons untouched.

Not the normal rule but it happens.

I'm pretty sure Steve Young waited 5 years.

He was a starter in the USFL and with Tampa Bay before he sat behind Montana wasn't he? And that was over 20 years ago.

He would have been the starter in year 2 if Favre didn't keep un-retiring.

Well Drew Brees is 34. I am not sure Griffin would have to wait 5 years. I would hope Brees plays as long as he can but there are no guarantees.
