New York Jets’ UDFA Profile: DE Anthony Grady

By Alan Schechter

Anthony Grady, although undrafted, will be at SUNY Cortland looking to earn a spot on the Jets’ roster.

This morning, we are going to take a look at another of our undrafted free agent signings. This one will have a tough road ahead of them, as they play a position where the Jets already have a lot of depth, which is defensive end. From Missouri St., we take a look at Anthony Grady.

According to his page on NFL Draft Scout, Grady stands at 6’6″, and weighs 271 pounds.

For his career at Missouri St., playing in 34 games, Grady logged 108 tackles, 14.5 TFL’s, and nine sacks.  Last season, he earned second team All-Missouri Valley honors.

At his Pro Day last March, Grady ran the forty yard dash in 5.07 seconds.  He ran the 3-Cone drill in 6.98 seconds.

Grady did not have any highlights that I was able to locate, so we will speak in some general terms.  Anybody that has seen him play, please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section.

His forty time is a bit slow, but his three cone drill is very good.  This is evidence of a good ability to change directions on a dime.  Anyone who has a job of getting to the ball carrier needs to be able to change directions.  Anthony Grady should be able to do just that at the next level.

The biggest issue facing Grady is his position.  Cracking the Jets’ defensive line will not be easy, as it is quite deep.  Grady will likely have to show some excellent special teams work in order to make the cut.

We wish him the best of luck in his quest to make the Jets.
