TSU's Derrick Griffin on NFL audition: 'It's a dream come true'

HOUSTON, Texas -- In a blink, Derrick Griffin was gone. He adeptly escaped from the grasp of a Prairie View A&M cornerback as he accelerated downfield into a smooth fly pattern.

The former Texas Southern wide receiver easily gathered in a long touchdown catch as a feeble attempt at press coverage was easily broken through by his superior size and athleticism.

Griffin is typically bigger, stronger and faster than anyone he faces on a football field or a basketball court.

Dismissed from the football team after violating team rules last season when he got in an argument with his position coach Griffin opted to declare for the NFL draft and the reigning SWAC Basketball Player of the Year has signed with veteran NFL agent James "Bus" Cook.

On Monday morning on the Rice campus, the physically gifted 6-7, 235-pound former blue-chip Miami and Texas A&M recruit will audition for NFL scouts.
