Scouting Report
Grant had 33 receptions for 515 yards and four touchdowns in his sophomore season at Tulane in 2010 and was poised to be a major contributor in 2011. He got off to a strong start that year with a 27-yard TD catch in the opening game but suffered a season-ending sports hernia injury. Grant received a medical redshirt, and he bounced back from the injury to post consecutive first-team all-Conference USA selections in 2012 and '13. Grant totaled 153 catches for 2,188 yards and 15 touchdowns in his final two seasons, putting him on track to possibly be selected as high as the fourth round. His transition to the pro game could be smoother than others since the Green Wave ran an NFL-style offense, but his lack of top-end speed - he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 seconds at the NFL combine - will likely force him to be a slot receiver. At the Senior Bowl in January, Grant said he needs to get better on deep routes, particularly judging deep throws and adjusting to underthrown passes. Many scouts believe he has some of the best hands in the draft, and he proved that in college by making numerous impressive catches. His size may also prevent him from playing the outside receiver position, and he showed little strength at the combine with just eight reps in the bench press. He was a top performer among wide receivers at the combine by tying for fourth in the three-cone drill (6.68 seconds) and finishing 12th in the 20-yard shuttle (4.11 seconds).
