Coach Jay Gruden called second-year WR Ryan Grant the Redskins' "best pure route runner" at wideout.

Gruden acknowledged the "only issue" for Grant is playing time; he's behind Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson on the depth chart, and that isn't gonna change. Grant could be a name to consider if something happened to Garcon.

Coach Jay Gruden said WR Ryan Grant could see more playing time this season.

"Ryan Grant, he’s awesome, man. He really is. He runs every route exactly like you tell him to," Gruden said. "He doesn’t make any mental mistakes. Plays like a 10-year veteran." The Redskins limited Grant to 187 rookie-year snaps, but have been talking up his development. Grant is Washington’s No. 4 receiver behind Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson, and Andre Roberts.

ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim believes Ryan Grant "has a ways to go" to be anything other than a fourth receiver.

A 2014 fifth-round pick, Grant played just 187 snaps despite being active for all 16 games as a rookie. He'll enter 2015 no higher than Washington's No. 4 receiver. Grant isn't a candidate for a second-year leap.

Ryan Grant caught 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

A fifth-round rookie, Grant ended up catching just seven passes despite being active for all 16 games. A slight 6-foot-0, 193 pounds, Grant won't be a realistic candidate for a sophomore leap.

Redskins WR Ryan Grant was held without a catch on one target in Washington's Week 4 loss to the Giants.

Grant now has just one target over his past two games, and has been held without a catch in 3-of-4 contests. He's miles from re-draft relevance.

Ryan Grant caught five passes for 57 yards in Sunday's Week 2 blowout of the Jaguars.

Grant played in all three-wide sets as an outside receiver following DeSean Jackson's first-quarter shoulder injury. The fifth-round rookie, who was one of the revelations of Redskins camp, impressed with really strong hands on some tough sideline catches. Grant clearly had some chemistry with fellow backup Kirk Cousins, who came on in relief of Robert Griffin III (ankle). Grant will be on the WR4/5 radar against the Eagles next week if Jackson sits.

Fifth-round WR Ryan Grant has been a "surprise standout" at Redskins camp.

"I love watching him run routes," said beat man John Keim. "He's very fluid in and out of breaks and does well selling fakes with his body lean and the crispness of his cuts." The problem is that Grant goes 6'0/199, is slow by NFL wideout standards and may have trouble getting off jams. His ceiling is as a possession slot receiver.

CSN Washington considers Redskins fifth-round WR Ryan Grant a "lock" for the 53-man roster.

Fifth-rounders are rarely "locks," but they get the benefit of the doubt. Coach Jay Gruden gushed about Grant in OTAs, saying he "plays like a 10-year veteran already." Standing in at 6-foot-0, 199 pounds with sluggish 4.64 wheels, Grant will have to contribute on special teams to get on the field as a rookie.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim projects fifth-round WR Ryan Grant as a future slot receiver.

Grant is 6'0/199 and speed deficient, with a 4.64 forty at February's Combine. He's not going to win on the perimeter in the NFL. Grant may open his career as a healthy game-day scratch, unless he contributes on special teams. The Skins use Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson outside, with Andre Roberts in the slot.

Following rookie minicamp, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said fifth-round WR Ryan Grant "plays like a 10-year veteran already."

Grant's understanding of route-running was evident at rookie camp. The former Tulane star won't be any higher than the No. 4 receiver as a rookie, barring injury, but the coaching staff really likes him. Grant will compete with Aldrick Robinson for a role behind Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson, and Andre Roberts.

Redskins signed fifth-round WR Ryan Grant to a four-year contract.

Grant doesn't have supreme athleticism -- 4.64 forty, 35.5-inch vertical, and 9-foot-11 board jump -- or great size (6-foot 3/8, 199), but he has plenty of experience as a three-year college starter. He'll compete for a roster spot.

Redskins selected Tulane WR Ryan Grant with the No. 142 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Grant (6-foot 3/8, 199) was a 31-game starter for the Green Wave, tallying 196 catches for 2,769 yards (14.1 YPR) and 21 touchdowns. He earned first-team All C-USA recognition as both a junior and senior. At February's Combine, Grant ran 4.64 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-11 broad jump. An excellent college wideout with limited athleticism, Grant would do well to forge an NFL career as a No. 3/possession receiver.
