We caught up with Dwayne Gratz at Athletes' Performance in Gulf Breeze, Florida. 

The football world was introduced to Dwayne Gratz at the 2011 Fiesta Bowl. Although the University of Connecticut got blown out 48-20 to Oklahoma, the Huskies cornerback picked off Landry Jones for 46-yard touchdown.

UConn had a disappointing 5-7 season in 2012, but finished 10th in the nation in total defense. The team has four players from that defense in the 2013 draft and none is more motivated to succeed than cornerback Dwayne Gratz

Gratz, like he did at the Fiesta Bowl, turned heads once again at the combine this year as he ran an impressive 4.47 time in the 40. He also showed great quickness and strength.

Where will this aggressive corner go in the 2013 NFL Draft? Let us know in the comments below if Gratz will shine in the NFL
