Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Sports a pro-ready NFL frame with good weight distribution. He generally plays with very good initial quickness. Shows impressive lateral agility and balance to recover. He plays low to the ground and locks out well, showing good functional strength absorb the bull rush. He's an ideal match in Oregon's zone-blocking offense due to his agility when blocking on the move. Grasu is quick to get to the second level and can adjust to hit and sustain against a moving target.

WEAKNESSES: Can be caught flat-footed, on occasion. Can be guilty of trying to do too much when he senses a blitz up the middle, trying (sometimes in vane) to slow two defenders, rather than stoning one of them and relying on teammates. Grasu has a bad habit of dropping his head on contact (which provides defenders an easy swim move over the top.

COMPARES TO: Max Unger, C, Seahawks -- like the other former Duck, Grasu relies on athleticism and technique rather than power.

--Rob Rang (7/16/14)

Player Overview

The Los Angeles native was a two-way starter at Crespi High School and a first-team all-state selection as a sophomore. By the time he was a senior, Grasu was a stalwart on an offensive line paving the way for 1,958 rushing yards.

Like many Oregon recruits, Grasu wasn't highly coveted by all the major programs. A three-star recruit by ESPN.com, Grasu was valued by the Ducks for his athleticism.

After redshirting in 2010, he jumped in as a 14-game starter redshirt freshman. Grasu enters his senior campaign with 40 career starts, a two-time first-team all-conference pick.
