Auburn RB Corey Grant isn't the biggest back -- measured in at 5-foot-9, 201 pounds -- and because of that he isn't talked about much as an NFL Draft prospect. However, Grant is opening some eyes at Auburn's pro day this morning after getting 22 reps up of 225 pounds in the bench press in the weight room before going out and running a blistering 40-yard dash.
Unofficial times are always going to have some error, but with two scouts clocking him under a 4.3 second 40, it's safe to say that Grant will have some teams digging back into the Auburn tape to find out more about him. Grant rushed for 1,040 yards in 2014 and is a terrific kick returner, averaging 24.48 yards per return on kickoffs for his career. With his versatility as a running back and special teams player and showing the speed and strength he did today, Grant could very well find himself on an NFL roster making an impact.
