Auburn running back Corey Grant carried the ball only 135 times during his college career for a total of 1,040 yards. That’s an average of almost 8 yards per carry. Not to mention, he has wheels. Shiny, well-rested, fast fucking wheels. At Auburn’s pro day, he got showcase them wheels and scouts had his 40-yard dash time around the 4.26 mark. Just watch, dude can fly.

You have to wonder why Grant, who’s limited stats are pretty phenomenal and has break-neck speed, was 1) not utilized more at Auburn and 2) not invited to the NFL combine? Because on top of his speed, the 5’11”, 205-pound running back also has a 37-inch vertical jump, a 10’7″ broad jump, and he can bench press 225 pounds for 22 reps.

In an interview with NFL.com, Grant spoke about his disappointment in being snubbed for the combine and the chip that currently resides on his shoulder.

I know next to nothing about scouting NFL talent, but I’d never bet against a dude who has a motherfucking ax to grind.
