After beginning his career at Ohio State, Trevon Grimes quickly pivoted to Florida (2018). After transferring there, he found a home and settled in during his time in Gainesville. Showing positive signs in 2019, he became a more featured player during his final season with the Gators. Grimes is a big-bodied receiver that is best when placed along the boundary. With below-average speed, but long strides, he has the ability to threaten defenders in front of him. A go-up-and-get-it style on vertical patterns, he has the ball skills necessary to haul in tough catches in man coverage situations. A mainstay as a run blocker, he provides extra value during short motions to in-line positions on the backside of runs.
Ideal Role: WR3 or WR4 that’s used mostly as a Z receiver. Grimes can be a chain-mover that’s also a frequent target in the red zone.
Scheme Fit: West Coast or Erhardt-Perkins “Z” Receiver or big slot option.
