Strike the fact he was a fifth-round pick and has yet to experience game conditions in the NFL — Washington Redskins wide receiver Ryan Grant has wowed just about everyone during training camp.
But this isn’t the first time Grant has been a talking point thanks to his play.
It all started during his very first action with the Redskins at rookie minicamp in May.
“He plays like a 10-year veteran already,” remarked head coach Jay Gruden. “He’s very smooth. He understands route concepts. He understand depths and how important they are and how to set people up… Easy in and out of breaks, effortlessly.”
That calmness has carried over into July and August, as the former Tulane star appears at ease during each snap. It’s something quarterback Robert Griffin III has continually noticed.
