With just 57 days until kickoff, let’s talk about second-year running back Corey Grant and his 57-yard touchdown in a Jacksonville Jaguars loss to the Indianapolis Colts to close out the 2017 season.

“There’s nothing I fear...”

First, let’s just get this out of the way — I have a lot of reservations about posting this video, even for parody purposes.

That aside, Grant is a nice piece in any running back group. He flashes speed last year and the ability to run between the tackles as well as solid special teams play. If he’s able to cut down on fumbles and become the Jaguars’ primary pass catcher out of the backfield, he could make T.J. Yeldon expendable. And now with the addition of Leonard Fournette as well as another year of Chris Ivory getting use to this offense, the Jaguars backfield isn’t all that bad.
