Scouting Report: Strengths
- Greet feel in coverage. Often arrives at the receiver at the same time as the ball, giving up few yards after the catch. Possesses straight-line speed to stay with or chase down receivers in man.
- Has enough twitch and speed to make an impact coming off the edge as a third-down specialist.
- Grubbs has excellent awareness in zone coverage.
- He has a compact build, but Grubbs is a crafty edge player who is very good against the run. He sets the edge and effectively wards off blocks with a strong core, powerful limbs, and natural leverage.
- Has the fluid hips and long arms to turn and run with tight ends, as well as excellent range when dropping into zone coverage.
- Grubbs shows excellent awareness in coverage when dropping into zone.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Loses size battle to many tight ends and is easily pushed away on out routes.
- As good as Grubbs is attacking downhill, he can get overaggressive and overrun plays, opening up cutback lanes for counter runs.
- He’s perfectly capable of converting speed into power when he gets to the ball, but too often he slips off tackles or turns into a grab-and-drag tackler rather than a hitter, failing to keep his legs driving through the hit.
