His final throw was a screen to highly touted receiver prospect Kendall Wright. After releasing the ball, Griffin sprinted deep on his own pass pattern. Wright lofted a long, high pass that Griffin caught and ran into the end zone. His teammates raced over and mobbed him.
With the pro day behind him now, Griffin has to wait to learn where he’s headed. Indianapolis Colts brass also was here Wednesday, and the Colts could decide Griffin is worth the top pick instead of Luck.
In the meantime, Griffin will take a deep breath and prepare for what’s next.
“I think everything will start sinking in,” he said. “I still don’t think it’s sunk in that I won the Heisman. I’ll be able to reflect back on the season, appreciate those types of things and realize that although I wanted to ‘be like Mike‘ when I was growing up, now I get to go out and be in the NFL.”
