We’ve hit the top three of our countdown of the top 21 players on the Beavers’ 2021 squad. Today we’re looking at the team’s top defensive back, cornerback Jaydon Grant.

#3 - Jaydon Grant

  • Position: Defensive Back
  • Class: Redshirt Junior
  • Height/Weight: 6’0”, 193 lbs.
  • Hometown: West Linn, OR / West Linn High School

Grant has emerged as one of the team’s top playmakers in the secondary over the past two seasons. Last season he snagged two interceptions and deflected four passes, en route to earning an All Pac-12 Honorable Mention. With Nahson Wright heading to the Dallas Cowboys, the Beavers secondary will be going through some big changes. Grant’s role in the unit will become much more important as the team’s primary ball hawk. No Beaver is better at getting in on a receiver and breaking up a play.
