Richie Grant, a safety with the Atlanta Falcons who was selected in the second round of the 2021 draft out of UCF, appeared in 16 games for the Falcons as a rookie and earned a significant role on special teams while also garnering incremental snaps with the defense. After the season was over, the 24-year-old had a total of 35 tackles, including two tackles for loss, and he had two passes defended.
Despite the fact that Grant did not necessarily have the rookie season that many people expected after being taken in the top 40, Falcons coach Arthur Smith feels the former Knights star is on the precise path the franchise envisioned when they selected him. Going into his second year, Smith has high hopes that Grant will be able to break into the starting lineup.
Grant had brief stints of playing time at safety on the defensive end, but in the fourth quarter, after Isaiah Oliver suffered an injury, he was moved to the nickel corner position.
Despite this, Grant possesses the skills and athleticism necessary to become a versatile player for Atlanta’s secondary. The Falcons will try to give Grant a clear role. Grant hopes to make the usual improvement in his second year, probably at his natural safety position.
