Antwane Grant joining Bengals as UDFA

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers wide receiver Antwane Grant is joining the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent.

NFL Draft Diamonds was the first to report the news:

Grant measures in at 6'1" and 205 pounds. He played football at Nassau Community College before transferring to WKU in 2014.

Grant finished his two-year college career at WKU with 96 catches for 1,210 yards (12.6 average) and 13 touchdowns. He also ran the ball three times for 65 yards and one score.

In an interview with NFL Draft Diamonds, Grant compared himself to a former Eagles receiver.

I would have to compare myself to a Michael Crabtree or Jeremy Maclin. The way I can use my body against smaller defenders and again the knowledge of the game they both possess is something I can relate to.

It's hard to see Grant making the final roster this year, but he's got a good shot to make it if he just comes in, makes an impact on special teams and show he can be productive when called upon on offense.
