You need to know about Jakeem Grant if you’re an NFL scout. He’s not the biggest WR entering the Draft, but he’s definitely the fastest player in the crop. Since he was not invited to the NFL Combine, he had to wait until Texas Tech’s pro day to show off his speed.
Allegedly, two teams clocked him at a blistering 4.10.
Texas Tech WR Jakeem Grant just clocked a 40 yard dash in the 4.1 range. #Saints scout had him at 4.10. Fastest 40 ever.

I do not rep him, but I'm at Texas Tech Pro Day & 2 teams text me saying they had Jakeem Grant clocked in "4.1s" on 40-yd dash w wind.

Big if true. Faster than Bo Jackson. Although when it came down to his official lasered time, he was only clocked at a slow 4.34. Unless the laser was too slow to clock him.

Kid can fly though. Just look at some of these moves.
Pretty sure he hurt that LSU DB in the second video with that juke. Hey Jakeem, Steelers are in need of a WR after Bryant went full Josh Gordon..
