 Draft Scout Corey Grant News
03/03/15 - The pro guys smiled when they clocked Corey Grant at Auburn's Pro Day on Tuesday. The former Auburn running back came in as low as a blazing 4.16 seconds in the 40-yard dash on some stopwatches, and even the time of 4.26 that Grant said some NFL guys told him was an eye-opener. "I think I had to prove a lot," Grant said. "I think I proved I really should have been at the Combine. I didn't get an invite, but that's OK. I came out and tried to take advantage of the day. " So did 22 former Tigers who ran and jumped and went through various drills in front of dozens and dozens ofprofessional football types in Auburn's indoor facility. It was a welcome home party for the players. - Auburn Football
03/03/15 - Running back Corey Grant entered pro day with a chip on his shoulder. Unlike seven of his teammates, Grant was not invited to the NFL combine, and said the lack of an invitation motivated him to perform to the best of his abilities Tuesday, March and by most accounts he did. “I think I had a lot to prove,” Grant said. “I really had to prove that I should have been at the Combine. I didn’t get an invite, but it’s ok. I came out and tried to take advantage of the day." After posting the highest vertical jump of the day at 37 inches, Grant put up an impressive 22 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, which Grant said was a personal record. Then came the 40-yard dashes, giving Grant a chance to show off his best attribute, his blazing speed. Unofficially, Grant’s second attempt at the run was a 4.28. “To hit that, that’s pretty good,” Grant said. “I knew I was probably going to hit around 4.2, so I was kind of expecting that, but it’s a good feeling to know that.”

Grant said that his pitch to teams to draft him included agility and looseness. “Overall I think it was hand skills with the ball,” Grant said. “Also speed and shiftiness, and my hips. I know it was a big question with me with tight hips, but I think I came today and through the L drill and short shuttle, showed that I had worked on that and improved.” The senior said he’s found two current NFL players to compare himself to. “Probably (Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren) Sproles or (New York Jets receiver) Percy Harvin,” Grant said. “Because of their body size, their hand skills, and just the way they play the game.” - David McKinney, The Auburn Plainsman

08/13/14 - Other Auburn prospects worth watching: RB Corey Grant, RS Senior...The search is on at Auburn to replace Mason, the Heisman finalist who rushed for 1,816 yards and 23 touchdowns a year ago and the winner could ironically enough be Grant, a player who first signed at Alabama. Grant, an Opelika, Ala. native, redshirted with the Tide in 2010 and sat out the 2011 season per NCAA transfer rules. He saw limited duty on special teams in 2012 but finished second to Mason among running backs a season ago with 647 yards, averaging an eye-popping 9.8 yards per carry. Grant's vision and speed make him a legitimate breakout candidate, though scouts would like to see him turn upfield to run between the tackles more often, rather than rely on his speed to attack the perimeter. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/08/14 - 2014 PRESEASON ALL-SEC THIRD TEAM (MEDIA): RB Corey Grant, Auburn (52)... One prong of Auburn's triple-threat tailback attack in 2013... 647 yards for season, averaging 9.8 yards per carry ... 146 yards rushing, including a 75-yard TD run, against Washington State, his first 100-yard game ... first career start came against Arkansas State. - Auburn football
04/02/12 - Corey Grant took the handoff and darted into the hole behind fullback Jay Prosch, who cleared out a linebacker and gave Grant a little daylight up the middle. Grant cut back and hit the afterburners. Forty yards downfield, cornerback Jonathan Mincy used the angle and tracked Grant down for a touchdown-saving tackle, but the run served to show Grant's teammates what most have expected all along. Grant, a transfer from Alabama who walked on to the team this season in order to play at Auburn, may be able to contribute at running back next season. "Corey Grant works so hard," Auburn linebacker Daren Bates said. "I've seen him do a lot of things when he was on scout team last year and could see he was going to be a great player." A four-star running back at Opelika High, Grant chose Alabama over his hometown school and spent a redshirt year learning the Crimson Tide's offense. Then Grant surprisingly decided to transfer. Convinced that he wasn't going to be able to get the playing time he wanted at Alabama, Grant chose to play at Auburn, a decision that forced him to redshirt again and compete for a year without a scholarship. "I just wanted to come in and work," Grant said. "I knew I wasn't going to be able to play, and I knew that time I had just to sit out, I could get bigger, faster, stronger and use that for when the spring came around." - Joel A. Erickson, Columbus Ledger-Enquirer
