4. Olaijah Griffin

Olaijah Griffin was an undrafted free agent that the Buffalo Bills signed during the offseason. He was released shortly before the season but was re-signed to their practice squad and has been with the team since then.

Griffin has enough height to play outside at 6’0″ but doesn’t have great size at 175 pounds which could allow him to be overpowered by bigger wide receivers in the NFL. The scouting report on The Draft Network though describes a player who is competitive and not afraid to support in run defense:

"Olaijah Griffin plays with a competitive streak that assists him in pass coverage. In the run game, he is instinctive and a willing tackler when he is the force player. He predominantly aligns in press coverage. He uses his length to get a good stab at the line of scrimmage. He is a ball-hungry player who demonstrates competitiveness at the catch point. He also demonstrates good awareness in zone, easily passing off routes while showing good understanding for route combinations. He has had injury issues that need to be monitored as the process continues."

There isn’t much to base Griffin’s rank on with limited action in preseason but if he has shown improvements during the course of the season on the practice squad, it wouldn’t necessarily be surprising to see him signed to the active roster based on his potential.

For right now though, he is probably the least likely to replace Tre’Davious White and take over the starting role.
