Ryan Griffin,  6’6″, 254 pounds, 25 Years Old

His size is ideal for an NFL tight end, and he does have some experience as he has started ten games in his two NFL seasons.

Some Background Info;

Drafted in the sixth round out of Connecticut, Griffin has been on the receiving end of only 29 career passes. He has yet to break out in the pros, but has shown some talent catching the ball by recording six touchdowns and 484 yards his senior season at UCONN.

What To Expect This Year;

Griffin has a shot to improve upon his mediocre 2014 season, but has not shown enough to get people too excited about that prospect. If everything falls into place, expect to see Ryan manning the third tight end spot for Houston in 2015.
