Weight: 199 Ib
With their 5th round pick and 142nd overall the Washington Redskins have selected wide receiver Ryan Grant out of Tulane. Grant may not be the tallest receiver at 6'0 but he is able use his compact frame to his advantage. Grant's has smooth acceleration and is a natural pass catcher.
Despite possessing natural pass catching ability and body control, Grant does lack ideal speed and physical tools to be a complete receiver. The Redskins have a project slot receiver in Grant who will need proper coaching to become a consistent contributor on offense. With the plethora of wide recievers the Redskins have Grant won't have any pressure to perform right away. Expect Grant to be an instant special teams contributor and a possible offensive weapon down the road.
