I thought I would mention something about him, because many Clemson fans think he will turn pro this year. He is only a sophomore but did a year of prep school so is eligible for the draft.

The man is an absolute physical specimen (6-5 and runs a 4.4). They say no one on the team can beat him in a foot race, including Watkins. I honestly think it would be a mistake for him to come out this early as he hasn't really lit it up on the field yet and could use another year of coaching. But supposedly comes from a very poor family and could use the $$$. And with the game he had last night against GT on national TV, who knows..

If he does decide to come out this year, watch him light up the combine and shoot up draft boards. He's definitely be a project type, but this guy has HUGE upside.

Interesting..... Got a good article or source on this?
I would like to read into it more.

Whenever I catch Clemson on TV this dude just pops off the screen. I will definitely be taking him in round 3 if he's still there.

Love his size and receiving ability. I haven't seen a ton of their games but he always seems to be a factor on the outside and I can't remember seeing him drop any catchable passes. Also, I was unaware of his speed and if that forty time holds up he will definitely see a huge bump in draft stock.

I've had my eye on him for most of this season and the kid is a beast. The Clemson coach said that he is easily the fastest guy on the team, including Watkins, and can jump through the roof. He looks pretty raw in terms of routes but he has nice, big hands and is physical at the catch. If you can get him in the 3rd, that would be a steal but, after the combine, I don't think he will that big of a secret anymore.

Yea this kid won't be a secret to anyone because guys that size who can run like him are highly coveted in the NFL. Brian Quick was the 33rd pick of the NFL draft for being a size/speed specimen, Jerome Simpson went early 2nd also, neither guy had much of a resume to speak of. After Bryant had himself a nice game, and has a big combine, I expect him to go no later then the 2nd round in the NFL draft, and in fantasy rookie drafts he should be jumbled in the late 1st/2nd with a ton of other WR's. A lot will have to do with his fit. If the Ravens or Lions take him in the 2nd I'd be a lot more excited about him then if Tampa Bay took him, so team fit will break a lot of ties.

I will be watching him closely during drills, want to see how fluid his hips are and it's hard to tell that sometimes with vertical or jump ball routes. He could be another Tommy Streeter, so I won't be taking him over more proven WR's until I see him go through more drills.
