“Jarrett Grace is a really physical player. He runs faster than he looks and will relentlessly chase down the running back even if he’s behind him 20 yards. He’s a rabid dog out there when he wants to be.”
Watching last year's videos of some practices, I had to stop and look up #59 because he looked like a nasty pit bull in the drills but I didn't know who it was. He hit conspicuously harder than anybody else and was quick as a panther on the whistle. I was really surprised he didn't get more time at LB in games where Teo was needed every down. I have every anticipation that he will be 1.Himself, not a clone and 2.A top linebacker for ND. I expect to hear his name a lot from day one.
In last years spring game, Grace's strength was in pursuit. His weakness was in getting overpowered and driven backwards. I hope that a year later he has figured out how to handle a guy coming right at him because, obviously, we need him to be an excellent player this year.

Did Grace make any impact on special teams last year?
