Yet Griffin stuck it out, staying in the green room throughout the second day, then staying in his hotel as the draft continued on Saturday.

The Raiders have spent a ton on veteran cornerbacks over the last couple of seasons, only to find that the one guy in the rotation who could consistently play at an above-average level was T.J. Carrie鈥攚ho played outside a lot in 2017 and has now signed with the Browns.

Tremaine Edmunds certainly has an NFL pedigree鈥攈is father, Ferrell, played tight end with the Dolphins and Seahawks from 1988 to 1994, making two Pro Bowls along the way. The Dolphins could do a lot worse in this draft than to give the younger Edmunds the same chance to impress at a different position. The team’s linebacker situation is disastrous at this point, and while he’s very raw, Edmunds displays the potential to be a truly unique player.

At Authentic Tyreek Hill Jersey 6’4, 253 pounds, he brings amazing athleticism for his size, and while his on-field instincts are very much a work in progress, he can outrun many of his mistakes.

He projects well as a 4-3 linebacker, but don’t be surprised if a smart defensive coordinator makes him an edge-rusher in certain situations鈥擡dmunds has all the tools to do that as well.

As fate would have it, Griffin was out of position 鈥?in the bathroom of his hotel room 鈥?when the big call finally came. His brother Shaquill, noticing the 425 area code on an incoming call, burst into the bathroom and demanded that he take the call.

As soon as we walked into Coach (George) O’Leary’s office, he said, ‘I’m not offering one a scholarship without offering one to the other,’ Shaquill recalled for USA TODAY Sports. He knew the message. He said it before I could even get the words out of my mouth.

And look at them now. They are still a package deal, pegged to be roommates again in Seattle.
