Height: 6' 4", Weight: 257 lbs
Strengths: Grimble has excellent field vision. Although his speed is not great, his large frame means he takes long strides to gain separation. He is not afraid of getting hit. He seems to enjoy fighting through tackles. He has good extension to match his reliable hands. He also uses his good hand-eye coordination to make difficult catches. He finished up his career at USC with 25 catches for 271 yards and two touchdowns.
Weaknesses: Grimble's last season at USC was not as productive as he had hoped. His numbers dropped off in every category. He is not quick off the line or a speedster down the field. He can be knocked off balance by smaller defenders. He suffered a chest fracture in the spring of 2013 and a shoulder injury caused him to miss some time, although never an entire game.
Bottom Line: Grimble has the build that NFL teams are looking for. His low production last year means that he will slip in the draft and possibly be a good value.
Projected Round: 5-6
Team He Fits Best On: Redskins, Falcons, Buccaneers
