Carl Granderson – Noteworthy
Former University of Wyoming defensive end Carl Granderson had a successful Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine, although legal issues that could have made him ineligible to compete here remain unresolved. Granderson, the former high school wide receiver who was measured at 6-foot-5, 254 pounds, displayed his athleticism with an official 40-yard dash time of 4.79 seconds. The time was 11th-best among edge rushers, a position group noted for its speed at this combine. Granderson’s broad jump of 119 inches was sixth-best in the group. Granderson, a first team All-MW selection as a junior and a second team pick as a senior, prides himself in his athleticism and feels that is what he can bring to an NFL team as a pass rusher.

“I’m also an outside linebacker, that’s what I played in high school,” Granderson said. “I can drop, rush out of a two-point stance, whatever they need me to do.” Last month, Granderson was charged with third-degree sexual assault and sexual battery in Albany County Circuit Court in Laramie. According to the affidavit, Granderson made unwanted sexual contact with two women while they slept at an off-campus apartment in November. The alleged incident occurred after UW’s season ended. Granderson hasn’t entered a plea and did not address the incident when asked by reporters at the combine. “As of right now it’s still an on-going investigation, I’m not allowed to talk about it,” Granderson said. – Wyoming Tribune Eagle
