Conference: MAC
Ht., Wt.: 5'10½, 187
40 Time: 4.61
Grade: 2.95

BIO: Second-team all-conference as a senior after totaling 93/1/4. Posted 138/2/5 as a junior after 114/1/8 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Physical defensive back best stuffing the run. Hard nosed competitor who hits hard and goes for the knockout blow. Smart, quick to diagnose the action and always willing to jump into the mix.

NEGATIVES: Indecisive in pass defense and lacks overall cover techniques. Plays out of control and gets caught out of position. Limited sideline-to-sideline range.

ANALYSIS: A defender who likes physical contact, Grant has the mentality to play strong safety or special teams at the next level. Lacks the top size-speed numbers but his approach to the game will help him catch on to a roster.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
