Analysis

Strengths

Shredded physique. Enjoys playing a physical brand of football and is willing to engage offensive linemen at the point of attack. Gets into blockers with his hands and works to shed. Has plus play strength. Tackles with authority.

Weaknesses

Straight-line linebacker. If he starts downhill, he stays downhill. When run plays become fluid and changing, Grant doesn't feature the lateral change of direction to flow with them. Doesn't make enough plays. Has played less than 50 percent of the Buckeyes' snaps over the last two seasons.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Looks the part, but has limitations in terms of instincts and overall nose for the ball. He's a physical inside linebacker with pass-rush and pass-coverage limitations. He might get a look based on measurables.
