The wide receiver from East Carolina has been plagued by injuries his entire career but has the ability to be a consistent threat on the outside. Although, this past season, he hauled in 59 catches for 886 yards and 6 touchdowns in spite of nagging injuries.
At this year’s NFL Combine, Grayson ran a 4.51 40 yard dash and had a 34.5 inch vertical. He had 19 reps on the bench press and a broad jump of 124 inches. Just for comparison’s sake, all of those stats were better than Antonio Brown’s combine stats. Odds are Grayson will not become the next Antonio Brown, but based on the combine and college stats, he has the raw talent to.
With proper coaching and the motivation to get better, Grayson would have the chance to become a productive receiver in the NFL.
