Draft Analysis:

"Bryant has a crazy wide receiver skill set, but he's a one-year wonder. This guy has some scary talent, but also some immaturity issues." -- Mike Mayock

  • 6'4" Height
  • 32 5/8" Arm Length
  • 211LBS. Weight
  • 9 1/2" Hands

Overview

Was a non-qualifier as a South Carolina prep and spent 2010 at Hargrave Military Academy (Va.). Joined Clemson in '11 when he played all 14 games (two starts) and tallied nine receptions for 221 yards (24.6-yard average) and two touchdowns. Appeared in 10 games in '12, managing 10-305-4 (30.1). Did not play against Boston College or Georgia Tech (groin), and was academically ineligible for the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Started 11-of-13 games in '13, totaling 42-828-7 (19.7). Did not start against Wake Forest as punishment for a throat-slash gesture, and gave way to a fullback and tight end against Maryland. Also returned 14 career kickoffs for 291 yards (20.8).

Analysis

Strengths

Superb body length with a long, rangy frame. Very good straight-line, separation speed. Can drop his hips surprisingly well for as tall as he is and is fairly shifty after the catch. Good red-zone target -- effective making back-shoulder catches. Flashes the ability to climb the ladder and highpoint the ball. Has return experience.

Weaknesses

Shaky hands -- tends to double-clutch the ball and makes too many easy drops. Is not a polished route runner -- is stiff in and out of his breaks. Lacks toughness desired to work the middle of the field. Must prove that he is willing to work to assimilate a playbook and learn the finer points of the game.

Draft Projection

Rounds 4-5

Bottom Line

A lean, long-limbed, rangy, outside-the-numbers, big-play receiver, Bryant declared for the draft early with underclassmen nipping at his playing time late in the season. Will require additional seasoning to make a mark in the pro game. A better tester than football player at this stage of his development, he has tools to be molded if he learns to hone his focus.
