2012

Grigsby had his best season in 2012 (82 catches for 1307 yards and nine touchdowns), and quickly emerged as the favorite target of JUCO transfer David Fales. Grigsby does an excellent job of gaining separation with his routes, displaying quick feet, precise cuts, and a knack for selling fakes to defensive backs. He is very lean at 5-foot-11 and just 175 pounds, but still manages to effectively shield defenders from the ball, and is not adversely affected by contact at the catch point. What makes him stand out among this class is his body control and ability to adjust to catch the football. He simply makes catches other receivers do not. While he is best classified as a possession receiver, Grigsby has ample speed to stretch the field as well, a part of his game that may become more prevalent with a more accomplished deep passer than Fales. -Jeremy Hyde, 07/02
