The Eagles will host Western Kentucky University wide receiver Antwane Grant on a pre-draft visit, according to a report from NFL Draft Diamonds. Grant is one of 30 prospects scheduled to visit the team's facility in Philadelphia leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft.

Grant measures in at 6-1, 205 pounds. He played football at Nassau Community College before transferring in 2014. Grant finished his two-year stint at WKU with 96 receptions 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.

No scouting report or spider graph available on Grant so here's a highlights video instead. (Warning: Music may be NSFW.)
