The early reviews were mixed in training camp.
Undersized rookie Jakeem Grant, who is 5-foot-7, was up and down in practices. The sixth-round pick dropped passes and muffed punts during training camp, and Grant entered Friday’s preseason opener against the New York Giants as somewhat of a wild card.
However, Grant might have produced his first “turning the corner” moment of his NFL career in Miami’s 27-10 victory. When the lights came on, Grant played under the spotlight and led Miami with four receptions for 68 yards and 113 return yards.
The story said Grant played a clean game with no drops and had two plays of 20 yards or longer. It’s the kind of effort that could have the rookie well on his way to earning a role with the Dolphins in the regular season.
