09/06/15 - RB Corey Grant faced some long odds as he was No. 6 on the team's list of running backs at the start of training camp. He only moved up one spot, but it was enough to secure him a place on the team.
Grant is one of three undrafted rookies who made the final roster. The former Auburn standout used a strong showing in the Jaguars' fourth preseason game to increase his chances of making the team. The 5-11, 205-pounder who has been clocked in a 4.29 40-yard dash time rushed for 74 yards on just five carries against Washington. Included in the total was a 40-yard run in which he outran the Redskins secondary once he got pass the line of scrimmage.
"You saw his speed right there - legit fast," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said. "(He runs a) 4.29 and I think he used all of it on that touchdown run."
Grant had come into the game with just eight yards on five carries in the first three games. He had been much more effective as a receiver, catching four passes for 43 yards. The Jaguars will also use him as kickoff returner. He posted a 24.5 average return in his career at Auburn, seventh best in school history.
