Geneo Grissom: Combine and Draft Overview

New, 1 comment
Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Geneo Grissom was a player that never really found a home on the football field during his time in Norman. Switching from TE to DE to LB surely led a player that never really reached his full potential while in a Sooner uniform. Grissom had some brief flashes of dominance as he utterly destroyed the Alabama offensive line in the Sugar Bowl and had an INT return for a TD against Tulsa. In addition to position moves, he also had several injury setbacks which cut short his senior year. The biggest question for Grissom is where does he fit at the next level? Does he find a role as an OLB in a 3-4 or a DE in a 4-3. His is the definition of a tweener and therein lies the problem. Here is Grissom's combine overview as well as draft prediction.
