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.
