It looks more like a katydid
It looks more like a katydid nymph-not sure which one though

 
Agreed. Long antennae rule out grasshopper.
Sometimes you can sorta figure these out by looking at the face. (Most times not!)

 
Angularwinged katydid.
This is the nymph of a species of Microcentrum (relatively short hind legs, speckled pattern on the body). It also has something wrong with the hind edge of the pronotum (top of thorax). Something is either lodged underneath it, or it had a molting problem.
