CBS Sports' Dane Brugler writes that scouts want to see "improved discipline and sustained confidence from play-to-play" out of Ohio State senior CB Doran Grant.

The 5-foot-11, 191-pounder is Ohio State's lone returning defensive back starter. "Grant struggled to crack the starting line-up his first two seasons in Columbus before becoming the full-time starter opposite Bradley Roby last season," Brugler wrote. "He is patient and trusts what he sees with adequate size, speed and ballskills for the position, but scouts want to see improved discipline and sustained confidence from play-to-play." Grant runs a 4.54 forty.

Doran Grant and Armani Reeves will begin the season as Ohio State's starting cornerbacks, according to position coach Kerry Coombs.

Both will be thrown into the fire due to Bradley Roby's suspension (misdemeanor assault charges) for the the Aug. 31 opener against Buffalo. Grant has played in every game over the last two years, but only has one career start. Reeves played in six games as a true freshman in 2012 and missed six more with a knee injury.
