The next chapter has officially begun for former Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant.
Bryant applied for the NFL supplemental draft earlier this month, and his application was approved on Friday, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
In three years at Mississippi State, Bryant played 37 games, totaling 157 total tackles, five interceptions and one touchdown. Bryant has "draftable talent," according to Pelissero.
Even if he has draftable talent, it is still a question as to whether he will be selected. If a player is selected in the supplemental draft, the team must forfeit a draft pick of the same round the player was picked in the following year's NFL Draft.
Bryant, alongside Virginia Tech's Adonis Alexander and Western Michigan's Sam Beal, is one of three major prospects entered in the supplemental draft who will hold pro days at their respective schools.
