    Sun Sentinel: Dolphins met with Clemson WR Martavis Bryant

    Bryant's visit list includes the Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steeelers and Detroit Lions.
    The 6-foot-4, 211-pounder is projected as a second-round draft target. Bryant ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds at the NFL Combine. He has run 4.3 hand-timed. He had a 39-inch vertical leap and a 10-4 broad jump at the combine and bench pressed 225 pounds 16 times.

    Last season, Bryant averaged 19.7 yards per catch. Two of his three receptions in the Orange Bowl victory over Ohio State went for touchdowns. As a sophomore, Bryant averaged 30.5 yards per reception with 10 catches for 305 yards and scored four touchdowns.

    Interesting point, but hopefully maturing and becoming a father of two has helped him to turn the corner:

    I want to take a closer look at him and Jordan Matthews and see which WR I think is the better fit for us, both have compelling size/speed/ability and Matthews has the solid character track record.

    If your looking for the professional and the guy who has his act together and will be ready to work I think Mathews is the guy, he is in the same tier group as Bryant and should be drafted around the same time, has similar measurable a, is much more polished and ready to contribute day 1 with upside to become go to WR.

    Bryant is all potential! He has incredible potential but so do a lot of other highly drafted WR's the past decade. Can he put maturity issues behind him, get to work, get disciplined and become a leader? If yes he's got all world ability, if not he'll be just another coulda-shoulda-woulda!

    Most of the all, the single most important criteria we must strive for is to bring impact players at impact positions to impact our seasons so that we can impact the post season!

    This is my feeling. I expect Bryant to go in the 3rd, and given the other WR's in this class, I wouldn't look at him until the 4th. Very talented, but he's a shot in the dark. Matthews is a 1st RD WR in most drafts, and I think he goes in the 2nd, but some of these WR's are bound to slip. There are scenarios where I'd draft Matthews at 50, and scenarios where I would not, but I wouldn't let him get by me at 81.

    Yeah I really would be happy with Mathews, me personally I'd go after Moncrief first at 50 because upside appears to be much higher, which of course he may not be there , but Shazier in the first and a receiver like Moncrief, Mathews, or Robinson would really set this team up talent wise! Lee, Cooks, or Beckham in first, then I'd look at Telvin Smith or Pierre-Olsen in later rounds, they are as athletically gifted but don't possess the polish to be plug and play, to get that OLB/WR talent that is sorely needed and is so overlooked.

    While fathering two children with two different women is not the smartest thing to do, I do not see how that equates to prison?

    Jordan Mathews would be nice as well. Mathews should have learned a good work ethic. His cousin is the great Jerry Rice
