Bucs Go Linebacker/Safety With Cody Grimm

April 24th, 2010

With the third pick in the seventh round, the Bucs have scored an overachieving, undersized linebacker, Cody Grimm out of Virginia Tech.

If the name sounds familar, it should be. His dad is Russ Grimm, Hall of Fame offensive lineman who was a member of the famed Washington Redskins’ Hogs and is now an offensive line coach with the Arizona Cardinals.

Sirius NFL Radio analyst Gil Brandt said Bucs fans should expect Grimm, just 5-11, to be a special teams warrior and a backup safety.

The Washington Post just wrote a neat feature on the kid. He’s projected as a strong safety in the NFL.

    He definitely needs to be locked in the weight room for a year, but he could be the steal of the draft.
