First check the front brake heat shields and make sure they have good clearance away from the rotor. It does not take a lot to make them scrape the rotor and then they only get worse. Remember when you pull them in one place they bend in another, so they can take some time to get straight.
Look for marks in your rotors to lead you to the source of the grinding wheter it is the heat shields or not.
If it does not appear to be the heat shiels, grab the hub witht the wheel off and the axle out and turn the bearing to make sure it moves smoothly and freely.
