BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter used at both cornerback and safety. All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 70/3/18. Junior-year numbers included 41/3/3. Champion sprinter and holds several Arkansas track and field records.
POSITIVES: Athletically gifted defensive back with a large degree of upside. Remains disciplined in centerfield, takes good angles to the action, and displays an explosive break to the throw. Fast, possesses a closing burst of speed, and has the ability to recover from mistakes. Defends the run and quick up the field to stop screen plays.
NEGATIVES: Shows marginal recognition and ball skills. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball and slow locating the pass in the air. Shows hesitation to his game and tends to lose his sense of where he is in man coverage.
ANALYSIS: Grant is a phenomenal athlete who.s still trying to transition his natural abilities to the football field. A developmental prospect, he's best suited in a system where he can face the action and run to the ball.
