Cody Grimm

School: Virginia Tech
Position: S
Bio: Posted career numbers of 106 tackles as well as 12.5 tackles for loss and 4 sacks as a senior when he became a full-time starter. Junior totals included 71 tackles, with 14 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks and two interceptions.
Positive: Physically aggressive safety best playing up the field or in the box. Smart, remains disciplined with assignments and plays heads-up football. Crashes up the field to defend the run and sells out to stop ball-carriers. Nicely flows the action, wraps up tackling, and brings opponents down on initial contact. Efficient and takes good angles to the play. Sells out on the blitz and flies up the field to make plays behind the line of scrimmage.
Negative: Possesses an average change direction and loses momentum when he must immediately alter his angle of attack. Marginal ball skills.
Analysis: Grimm is a high-revving defender who goes very hard and chases around the field to get involved in the action. Used more as a linebacker type of defender at Virginia Tech, his responsibilities were to make plays in the box or up the field. Needs work on his ball skills and lacks classic defensive backs size, yet he has the mentality and approach to the game, which could help him make a roster as a traditional strong safety.
