Jakeem Grant – WR
When it comes to speed, Jakeem Grant and Matt Breida are the two on the Dolphins roster that has it.
Grant is fun to watch and when he gets his hands on a kick-off or a punt, anything can happen. Fans, including myself, view Grant as one of the most electric players on the roster and a can’t miss player that will elevate the offense. But has he?
Reality is a bitter pill and while Grant has shown the athleticism to be special, he hasn’t quite arrived just yet. Entering his fifth NFL season, it’s time for Grant to take that next big step because if he doesn’t, the Dolphins may have to look at 2021 for a replacement.
In his four seasons, Grant has missed games, six in each of the last two years and his entire rookie season. His 53 receptions have come in a total of 52 games which means he averages one reception per game. He needs to be more involved for sure.
We like to look at that speed and boast about he matches up with corners and linebackers but he has yet to really have any kind of breakout season. 2020 may be that year with the opting-out of Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson. The possibilities are there for him to take.
Hopefully, Grant does just that. He has the talent but not exactly showcasing to the level that he could.
