Draft Profile: Bio
Kenneth Grant from Merrillville High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Grant joined Michigan after being heavily recruited.

In 2022 as a freshman Grant saw action in 12 games and played a total of 101 snaps for the Wolverines. He recorded just 3 tackles, 5 assists, while adding 2 stops.

As a sophomore for the Wolverines in 2023 Grant played in 14 games and took part in 366 snaps for the Wolverines. He recorded 18 tackles, 10 assists, while adding 15 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 20 total pressures, and 14 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and 4 sacks during the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
  • He’s very instinctive when it comes to countering and solid with overall hand usage.
  • His hand use is excellent; he’s strong in the upper body and consistently swats away blockers.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Despite a bowling-ball build, Grant has good feet and agility, capable of working laterally down the line of scrimmage in pursuit.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks the ability to be a true edge burner. While Grant was able to physically overpower opponents at the college, he will have to develop a wider repertoire of moves in the pros.
  • Grant doesn’t move well laterally and doesn’t have a lot of range when it comes to pursuing on the backside.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
