BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Senior-year totals included 24/3/2 when he moved to defensive tackle. His career-high 48/12.5/4 came as a junior.
POSITIVES: Penetrating defensive tackle with ability at several spots on the line. Quickly gets off the snap with a good first step, plays with terrific pad level, and shows speed up the field. Smooth changing direction, shows a closing burst, and stays with the action. Rarely off his feet, plays with good balance and body control.
NEGATIVES: Marginally strong and handled by a single blocker. Must improve his hand technique and shed blocks quicker. Seemed to be missing something as a senior after suffering a knee injury midway through his junior campaign.
ANALYSIS: A nice-sized defensive end with growth potential, Grady offers possibilities as a three-technique lineman or even a two-gap end. Must get his game back on track and improve his overall playing strength to have a chance at the next level.
