Grimes in a Tennessee Titans jersey spells disaster for the rest of the AFC South.
Okay, it’s draft time, and all off-season, you’ve been talking about how good of a cornerback prospect Alabama’s Patrick Surtain is right? Do yourself a favor when you have a moment. Go to YouTube or wherever you spend your free time and watch how Trevon Grimes torched Surtain in the most recent SEC Championship Game in Atlanta for a 50-yard strike.
At most schools in the country, Grimes is the go-to guy. At Florida with the Gators, well, you have guys like Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney competing with you for catches.
Here’s the thing though. Toney might be more interested in getting his rap career going at times than playing football (that Yung Joka stuff is hot though), and while the Titans may have a shot at landing Toney in Round 1, there’s no way they’re getting Pitts. Grimes might be a nice late-round consolation prize.
Like the other two guys on this list, Grimes won’t elevate the Tennessee Titans alone, but he does represent the best chance to do so. In the meantime, If Tennessee lands a great prospect early and looks to add another later, this might be their best third-day option.
If none of that convinces you, maybe this will, Imagine how tired opposing defenses are going to be in the fourth quarter after having to deal with a six-foot-three, 247-pound Derrick Henry and a six-foot-four, 218-pound Trevon Grimes all afternoon or all evening, especially on the road.
