The San Francisco 49ers hosted Clemson WR Martavis Bryant for a pre-draft visit on Monday.
The 49ers are looking for a vertical threat who can make plays down field, and Bryant definitely fits that mold. Not only does Bryant have speed (4.42 forty) but he brings size to the table at 6'4, 211 pounds. Bryant played opposite of Sammy Watkins, and averaged 19.7 yards a catch, finishing with 828 yards overall and seven touchdowns. The Clemson wideout has been compared to the late Chris Henry.

The Dolphins invited Clemson WR Martavis Bryant to visit team headquarters for a pre-draft visit.

No word yet on if the invitation has been accepted or when the meeting would take place. Bryant is a strict vertical weapon with imposing measurements at 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds with forty times in the mid 4.3s. He's been compared to Justin Hunter and the late Chris Henry.

The Lions hosted Clemson WR Martavis Bryant for a pre-draft visit on Thursday.

NFL teams are allotted 30 such pre-draft visits. "It was good to show people what I could do," Bryant said. "Some people though I’d run a 4.5, but I always knew I was fast. It was just good to get out there and showcase what I can do along with all the other great players out there." Being paired across from a superstar WR, in this case Calvin Johnson, is old hat for Bryant, who was Sammy Watkins' running mate in college. Bryant also knows his strengths pretty well. Asked what the best aspect of his game is, the wideout said: "The deep ball."

ESPN's Todd McShay sees "Justin Hunter qualities" in Clemson's Martavis Bryant and believes the Tigers' WR could be good value pick.

"[Bryant] didn't have a particularly productive college career (just 61 career catches) and was never a good fit in Clemson's offensive system," McShay wrote. "But he would be a perfect fit for an NFL system like the Ravens, as a big-armed QB like Joe Flacco could maximize Bryant's potential as a vertical route runner. Bryant has elite size and speed." Bryant is an athletic freak who, at 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, ran unofficial forty times of 4.34 and 4.35 seconds at the combine (and posted a 39-inch vertical and a 10-yard split of 1.53 seconds). He's also been compared to the late Chris Henry.

The Jets are showing "heavy interest" in Clemson WR Martavis Bryant, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

This would be an interesting situation, since Jets fans are still trying to get over Stephen Hill's lack of development. Bryant is not as raw as Hill was, but he's more of a vertical target than anything right now. The Clemson product is an outstanding athlete, although projection must heavily be factored into his evaluation.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl says Clemson WR Martavis Bryant "flashed big upside on tape."

Bryant is an athletic freak who, at 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, ran unofficial forty times of 4.34 and 4.35 seconds at the combine (and posted a 39-inch vertical and a 10-yard split of 1.53 seconds). "He is a bit straight line and can have trouble dropping his weight and separating from underneath coverage. However, in Bryant’s defense, he was not a great fit within offensive coordinator Chad Morris' scheme at Clemson which relied heavily on quick hitting underneath throws," wrote Weidl. The analyst believes Bryant will be a nice value selection on Day 2. "Bryant has the talent to become a strong No. 2 with a few years of development," he wrote. Weidl sees some of the late Chris Henry in Bryant.

Clemson WR Martavis Bryant is a "high ceiling, low floor" talent, according to's Daniel Jeremiah.

"Ton of drops early in the year, much better on later tape," Jeremiah said of his film session studying Bryant. The wideout is an athletic marvel -- at 6'5/200, he ran two unofficial forty times of 4.34 and 4.35 seconds at the combine, leaped to a 39-inch vertical, and logged two 10-yard splits of 1.53 seconds -- but his production vacillates wildly. Playing opposite Sammy Watkins in a WR-friendly system with a solid college QB (Tajh Boyd) should have produced bigger accolades for such a prodigious athletic specimen. Evaluators are torn, and they are right to be.
Mar 3 - 1:38 PM

One NFL scout believes Clemson WR Martavis Bryant is "a little bit of a knucklehead."

"He's got talent," the scout said. "He's had some drops... but he can make all the catches. He's a build-to-speed guy. Would I draft him in the first round? No. Does he have first-round talent? Pretty close." Another scout, who spoke to Packers' beat writer Bob McGinn, said Bryant could be a first-round flier if he blew up the Combine. Bryant did just that, posting a 44.42 second forty and a 39-inch vertical.

Clemson WR Martavis Bryant ran two unofficial forty times of 4.34 and 4.35 seconds at the NFL Combine.

He also posted two 10 yard splits of 1.53 seconds. Bryant played opposite Sammy Watkins but lacked consistency. He is an upside pick at this rate that might take a while to develop, but that athletic ceiling is high.

Clemson junior WR Martavis Bryant joined teammate Sammy Watkins by declaring for the NFL draft.

In a text message to beat writer Aaron Brenner, Bryant wrote "I have decided to enter the draft, it's best for me and my family." Bryant started the season slowly, losing opportunities at the catch point while dropping a few targets, but he progressed and started winning contested situations. That could be where he shines in the NFL, since he boasts a 6'5/200 pound frame.
Jan 5 - 1:32 PM

Clemson junior WR Martavis Bryant had five receptions for 176 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's victory against Georgia Tech.

Bryant snagged a 76-yard touchdown pass from Tajh Boyd in the second quarter. The junior wideout hadn't previously cracked 90 receiving yards in a game. The 6-foot-5 Bryant is a nice vertical threat who figures to receive a nice bump in usage next season when Sammy Watkins is playing on Sundays.

Clemson junior WR Martavis Bryant will play in a limited capacity this weekend against Wake Forest as punishment for his throat-slash TD celebration against North Carolina State.

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney announced the terms of Bryant's "team discipline" on Tuesday, but he wouldn't specify exactly when Bryant would be restricted from the field. Bryant accrued 10 catches for 160 yards and two TDs over his last two games, so Swinney's lenient punishment is understandable. While the throat-slash celebration is no longer tolerated in this country (outside of the UFC, that is; Josh Barnett famously celebrates victories thusly), it was especially embarrassing for Bryant to use the gesture on national television to taunt a team that was a double-digit underdog and had led for most of the game until that point.

Clemson junior WR Martavis Bryant has moved from a backup role into the starting lineup.

"He’s matured off the field. He’s matured on the field," Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd said. "And I think he realizes how big his role is on this team. Martavis is going to do everything possible in his nature to help his team." Bryant has reportedly displayed acrobatic skill and is currently starting opposite Sammy Watkins.

Clemson sophomore WR Martavis Bryant has been suspended for the school's bowl game due to academic reasons.

Bryant is not a huge part of the Tigers' offense, but as the fourth receiver he tallied 305 yards and four touchdowns on 10 receptions. As a kick returner, the sophomore accounted for 10 returns for 210 yards.

Clemson sophomore WR Martavis Bryant will miss the next two games with a groin injury that occurred prior to Tuesday's practice.

He is expected to return for the Tigers game against Virginia Tech. Bryant was featured much more during Sammy Watkins' suspension, specifically as a returner. For now, he is only a tall, vertical threat.
