Griffin was selected with the 74th pick in the fifth round of the 1975 draft by the New Orléans Jazz.

He played 240 games over three seasons with the Jazz and put up very respectable numbers. In a little more than 20 minutes a game, Griffin averaged 4.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and two assists.

After leaving the Jazz, Griffin spent four more productive years with the San Antonio Spurs before retiring.

Wow, Eaton was a beast. I forgot what a monster he was.

This article could have at least given an honorable mention to the 1979 draft pick (Paul Dawkins) who made the team while the #1 pick that year (Larry Knight) was waived and never saw the court. Dawkins was a 10th round pick and probably the only player ever taken in that round to ever make an NBA team. He had a productive rookie year on a poor Jazz team. Also there were other noteworthy low picks such as Greg Deane out of the Universty of Utah who made the team and contributed.
