One name to watch next month at the NFL Scouting Combine will be former Texas Tech wide receiver Jakeem Grant who, despite being smaller than almost all NFL receivers at 5-foot-7, 168 pounds, could still turn a lot of heads.
Sure enough, a video of Grant’s highlights was produced to entice scouts to take a further look at him. Check it out!
Grant, despite his size, was a three-star recruit out of the Dallas area and put up great numbers in Lubbock. He reeled in 254 catches for 3,286 yards for 27 touchdowns while also being a force on special teams, returning 87 kickoffs for 2,169 yards and four touchdowns.
Needless to say, with a strong combine performance, Grant could easily find himself selected not necessarily on Day 1 of the upcoming NFL Draft, but definitely Day 2 or 3.
Stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates from Grant’s path to the pros!
