    WR Martavis Bryant

    This guy is one to watch, was in the shadow of Sammy Watkins at Clemson. The first clip shows him getting open deep and then making a really nice adjustment to catch the deep ball. The second clip to me is a bit striking in the acceleration that he shows immediately after making the catch, after breaking open deep. He just explodes after adjusting for the catch, right into the endzone. That kind of acceleration for a guy who's 6-4 is pretty remarkable imo. We could use a receiver like that- fast, explosive, tall, will go up to fight for and catch the ball. Could be a 2nd or 3rd round steal.

    I think we could get him at the start of the third rd, but we would have to trade up. At 6'4", he is definitely a big target. The main knock on him is that he has a slight frame and he does not have the power to fight for the ball.

    He'll put some weight on that frame as he gets older. He measured in at the combine at just under 6-4 and 211 lbs- that's closer to ideal than a problem. I don't see any issues as to Bryant being able to fight for the ball, whatsoever. If you want to see skinny look at WR Paul Richardson from Colorado.

    Just listening to Greg Cosell say Bryant's the most interesting and intriguing receiver in the draft this year (and he rates this WR draft as the best in a decade).

    Loves Beckham Jr. and Moncrief too.

    As far as his frame is concerned, he's close to what you would want. In my other thread on this guy (linked above) I put some links in for some ESPN highlights as well as the draftbreakdown stuff. If you take a look, this kid is quite physical - one of the better blockers in the draft - and he does put his body in there to make the catch. You can tell that the will and the fight are there.
