Deon Grant is not Pro Bowl bound. He doesn’t hurt guys like Roy Williams. He form tackles, and does so pretty well. Grant gets his picks, but has never run one back for a score. He’s not "dynamic" in the open field. But what Grant is is one of the best free safeties in the NFL. He does play an excellent center field, combing good quickness with exceptional anticipation and awareness. He does make smart gambles, grabbing picks when a miss wouldn’t hurt. And Grant does play pretty fine strong safety for a free safety.

In my eyes, this pick is a real steal. Grant has already proven to be a top cover safety, started with the Hawks in his prime, and has a very good chance of staying very productive for 5 of the 6 seasons he’s under contract. The Sliders will move him to safety to accommodate its manager’s personal opinion about his strengths and weaknesses. I think that counts as pretty good value for the bottom of the 12th.
