Ryan Grant, WR, Tulane


Redskins, Round 5. Goes to a Redskins team as maybe the third or fourth WR. Has a lot of receiving skills and should stick on a middling WR corps and potentially start next to Garcon and Jackson.

All-Star Games: Senior Bowl.

Positives: Slightly above-average height and bulk, with above-average hand size. Above-average quickness. Above-average hands when extending, and can make difficult catches – though looked bad in Combine gauntlet drill. Strong hands and can snag the ball going past him. Shows good concentration on contested passes, and wins a lot of jump ball situations. Runs above-average routes and gets good separation on double moves. Fairly elusive after the catch. Aware of where the 1st down marker is. Adequate vertical leap. Above-average lateral quickness and excellent ability to change directions in Combine testing.

Negatives: Suspect balance making cuts and slips often. Below-average game speed and track speed for the position and for his size. Fairly week upper body.

Projection: Worth a flier in the 3rd round or later.
