Hype video highlights Texas Tech WR Jakeem Grant

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.
