    PROS: Talk about production, this guy has it. As a first year starter in his sophomore year, Grant recorded 108 tackles with six interceptions, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. With stats like that, saying that he's always near the ball would be an understatement. Knows where the flow of traffic is going and can generally be called upon as a ball stopper on most plays. UCF plays him in a way where he can read and react to the field and where the ball is going -- often out of the quarterback's hands quickly. Anticipates as well as he does react.

    CONS: Though the production is there, the traits are not. Grant is just not fast enough and not strong enough to be thought of as a coveted NFL player right now. That game versus Memphis where he was going up against Darrell Henderson and Tony Pollard was one of the worst outing I've seen from a prospect this cycle. Against NFL competition, he didn't look like he could hang.
