Chicago Bears Round 5, Pick No. 148
Trevon Grimes has all the traits to be a great wide receiver at the next level. He is 6′ 4″ and could potentially run in the 4.4s. He’s additionally a great jump-ball wide receiver and surprisingly good explosiveness.
Grimes though needs work. He has a very limited route tree from his time at Florida. He is a complete red zone threat though with his size and jump-ball ability. He didn’t get a lot of action from Kyle Trask, but he still caught nine touchdown passes on only 38 catches.
He could at the least be a big-bodied slot wide receiver that offers constant mismatches. He is a great run-blocker as well. It’s hard to gauge whether he peaked in college as he hasn’t improved much since coming in, but if a team can figure him out, he will be dangerous.
Grimes could essentially replace Javon Wims as the run-blocking, big-bodied wide receiver, at the least. He could eventually evolve into a starter at the slot position or even at the ‘X’ wide receiver if he develops into his traits.
