Bio:Four-year starter named Gateway
Conference Defensive Player of the Year last
season after totaling 129/8.5/3. Handed numerous
All-Conference, All-American and national
awards throughout his college career.
Hard-working, run-defending linebacker who
leads by example. Quickly fills gaps upfield,
displays explosion at the point of attack and
wraps up tackling. Disciplined, stays with
assignments and quick to key or diagnose the
play. Efficient, takes good angles to the ball
and moves well laterally. Solid job making the
defensive calls. Displays speed in pursuit with
the ability to chase plays out to the flanks. Gets
depth on drops.
Negatives: Easily wired in blocks
or caught in the trash scraping laterally. Does
not show great speed on the blitz. Marginal
coverage skills and hesitant reacting when the
ball's in the air.
Analysis: Ultra-productive on a
small-school level and a linebacker who can be
used in a number of ways, Grigsby offers a lot
of intangibles and intensity. Best off in a system
that protects the linebackers and lets them freely
flow to the ball. Potential backup whose playing
style lends one to believe he'd be productive on
