Auburn redshirt senior RB Corey Grant "does not get much love in scouting circles," observes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.
Grant finished with 647 yards last season on an incredible 9.8 yards per carry. "Grant does not get much love in scouting circles but based on the film he looks like a tremendous third down back/situational player," Pauline wrote. "He’s a blazer that can take it the distance any time the ball is in his hands. Grant is also a terrific pass catcher out of the backfield who creates yardage, making defenders miss and beating them into the open field. He lacks the size to be a feature runner and I’d like to see Grant add return skills to his game but I really like him as a late rounder next April." Pauline grades him as a Rds. 5-6 prospect.

Auburn redshirt senior RB Corey Grant's "vision and speed make him a legitimate breakout candidate," believes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

The Tigers may turn to an Opelika, Ala. native -- and former Crimson Tide signee -- to replace Tre Mason, a Heisman finalist who rushed for 1,816 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2013. Grant redshirted at Alabama in 2010, sat out the 2011 season due to transferring rules, and has been backing up Mason since. "Grant's vision and speed make him a legitimate breakout candidate, though scouts would like to see him turn upfield to run between the tackles more often, rather than rely on his speed to attack the perimeter," Rang wrote. Grant finished with 647 yards last season with an incredible 9.8 yards per carry.

Auburn junior RB Corey Grant is also listed as the school's backup slot receiver.

"Grant appears to be the prime candidate to replace Onterio McCalebb as the "speed" back in the Tigers' offense, which will feature Grant more prominently than in years past," beat writer Brandon Marcello writes. "He will play receiver and tailback in the offense." Quan Bray is listed as the starting slot receiver.
