Scouting Report on Curtis Grant

by Barry Every - 08/09/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeAs Good As It Gets
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Tall, wide-shouldered athlete with a very well-developed lower body. His build is similar to Ohio State junior Etienne Sabino.
Needs Improvement: Working on flexibility may help some of the stiffness issues he has when flipping his hips in coverage. Also, recognizing play-action pass quicker and getting good depth is another area of pass defense he could improve upon.
Most Impressive: He possesses magnificent size for a linebacker and really plays downhill versus the run. Grant has the size and speed to also rush off the edge and wreak havoc in the backfield.
Conclusion: Size and speed alone make him an early candidate for all special teams at the next level. It is foreseeable that he will have an impact as an extra rusher during passing downs. He has the ability to become a three-year starter and an all-conference performer.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
