2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Cory Grant, DT, TCU

Like most defensive players at TCU, Cory Grant had to pay his dues. And like most defensive players at TCU, Grant is an under appreciated player. Grant spent his first three years with the Horned Frogs either redshirting or playing very sparingly. In all, he recorded two sacks in two seasons of play. By 2009 Grant was ready to step into a starting role. On the year he tallied 5.5 sacks, but in the middle of the defensive line Grant did a lot more than the numbers do not show. On many occasions, Grant would collapse the pocket and allow his teammates to make the big play.

Grant had a drop off in production during his senior campaign, totaling 18 tackles, 5.0 tackles-for-loss and 3.5 sacks. However, he again was the catalyst behind many quarterback hurries and sacks that his teammates finished off. Yet, it is that lack of production that is a cause for concern for many NFL teams. Grant is a tough player, but there are stronger interior linemen out there who will wow scouts.

Grant will not be too impressive in pre-draft workouts and that will keep him as a late round draft pick at best. Grant has a good chance of making an NFL team since he does his best work on the field and once he gets on the field coaches will find him tough to take off.
