2014 Redskins Camp Battles – Wide Receivers

6 of 6

5.  Ryan Grant – Age: 23, 6-0, 193


  • Grant was a fourth round pick in 2014 and Jay Gruden clearly likes him.  So that gives him an advantage.
  • He possesses nice versatility as Grant can play outside or inside in the slot.
  • He has good enough speed to go deep and can make acrobatic type catches.


  • He’s a rookie and it may take him some time to develop before he can make an impact.
  • Grant has similar size to other receivers on the team, so he will need to find other ways to stand out.

Ryan Grant’s status as a draft pick by a new coaching regime indicates there may be future plans for him even if he isn’t expected to start this season.  So if he performs well enough in camp, then he should have a good chance for one of the last receiver spots.    Redskins camp battles
