Draft Scout Corey Grant News
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

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
