Clemson (WR) Martavis Bryant has been overshadowed the past couple years by teammate Sammy Watkins and former teammate DeAndre Hopkins (Texans, 2013 1st round pick). Bryant has great length, 6-5 200 lbs, similar body type to Sidney Rice. Bryant is one of Clemson's fastest players and is supposedly faster than Sammy Watkins, although I don't know that he is as quick off the line of scrimmage. Bryant was a highly recruited player coming out of high school who has had his struggles with dropped passes and as well as maturity issues. He is only a junior but I think he is highly likely to declare for the draft because his QB is leaving for the NFL after the season and Bryant has two daughters to support. Bryant is a prospect with huge upside and his best football may be ahead of him as long as he can mature and stay out of trouble. Bryant reminds me of former Bengals WR Chris Henry, similar body type, athleticism, and a little bit of a knuckle head. Way too early to predict what round he would go, but I could see him being an option for us in rounds 2-4.
There isn't any scouting video yet of him, but here are a couple of highlight plays I found of him on youtube.
In this picture he can see how much bigger (longer) he is than Sammy Watkins.
