Clemson’s other receiver pretty darn good Dan Leberfeld

While Sammy Watkins gets a ton of attention, and rightfully so, the other Clemson receiver in this draft isn’t too shabby.

Martavis Bryant is an exciting prospect as well. He’s got really good triangle numbers at 6-4, 211 pounds with 4.42 speed.

Bryant doesn’t mind all the attention Watkins gets.

In fact, on the field, all the attention Watkins got from opposing defenses, opened up some mismatches for Bryant, which he did a nice job taking advantage of, en route to earning Honorable Mention All-ACC honors in 2013.

Bryant’s height, long arms and good leaping ability help him win a lot of jump balls over smaller defensive backs.

“It allows me to block out defenders on the high point of the ball,” Bryant said. “I got a little vertical in me too, so it helps me gain an advantage over the defender.”

Where does Bryant expected to be picked in the draft?

“Hopefully first round – whatever happens, happens,” Bryant said.

He’s likely to go in the second or third round. And could end up constituting a very good post-first round value.
