Scouting Report
Only a handful of teams are expected to have a chance at Sammy Watkins, but this fellow Clemson standout would surely be a nice consolation prize. Watkins and Bryant formed one of the most dynamic receiver duos in the country, with Bryant hauling in 42 receptions for 828 yards and seven touchdowns during his third and final season with the Tigers. A dangerous deep threat and big-time playmaker, Bryant averaged 19.7 yards per catch to rank eighth in the FBS in 2013 and decided to leave school after his junior year. Bryant's combination of size and speed should make him a hot commodity come draft day, and he certainly has the tools to excel at the next level. With good body control and a great ability to separate from defenders, the sky is the limit for Bryant, who projects as a late second- or third-round pick. Bryant likely helped his stock at the NFL combine, where he finished tied for fifth at his position with a time of 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He also tied for sixth among wideouts with a 39-inch vertical jump and completed 16 bench press reps. While there's a ton to like about Bryant, some are concerned about his feel for the game. He isn't nearly as polished as Watkins - a likely top-10 pick - or some other receivers in his class, and he'll likely need to clean up his routes if he's going to reach his potential. Like most prospects, Bryant could also benefit from adding some muscle.
