Long arms capable of knocking down hands and disengaging blocks. Solid combination of speed, quickness, and agility for his size. Instinctual pass rusher. Knows how to get to QB. Can play OLB due to his size. Rushed the passer as many snaps as he dropped back into coverage. Flashes good vision to knock down passes and intercept them too.
Doesn't look extremely flexible. Isn't laterally quick. Not a truly explosive guy. Won't wow you with straight line speed. Will struggle against shifty RBs.
2015 Draft: Geneo Grissom College Highlights
This is from @mikereiss -> Total breakdown: Patriots draft DE Geneo Grissom in third round http://t.co/IcEnzWCfIg— Adam Bogdan (@PatriotsInform) May 2, 2015
When it comes to what kind of player Grissom is, it sounds like not only did the Patriots target him throughout the draft process, but they knew he would fit right in. He shows the "Do Your Job" mentality and clearly has a passion for the game.
