No. 118 overall pick Clemson WR Martavis Bryant will have a chance to start as a rookie, according to Steelers WR coach Richard Mann.
Bryant slipped down the board because he's a one-trick pony who needs a lot of technique work. That said, his trick is pretty neat: The 6-foot-4, 211-pound wideout ran a 4.42 forty at the combine and was one of the class' best deep threats. "He'll be a great weapon for us in the red zone. What he does really well is track the football. I'm surprised he lasted long," Mann said. Bryant, a fourth-rounder, should duke it out with Markus Wheaton and Lance Moore in camp for playing time.

Steelers selected Clemson WR Martavis Bryant with the No. 118 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

The Steelers get the big receiver they badly needed. Bryant (6-foot-4, 211) played the second-fiddle deep threat role to Sammy Watkins in Clemson's Tajh Boyd-led offense, posting a 42/828/7 stat line as a junior before turning pro. He averaged over 22 yards per catch in college and clocked a scintillating 4.42 forty at February's Combine. Bryant's athleticism is legit, with a 39-inch vertical and 1.53 ten-yard split. He's drawn Chris Henry comparisons for his body type and straight-line speed combination. Bryant is a long, lanky field stretcher, but there is little on tape that suggests he'll be an asset at the first and second levels. He's something of a one-trick pony.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock believes the Chargers would be a good fit for Clemson WR Martavis Bryant in the second round.

Mayock said the Tigers' burner had "an awe-inspiring skill set" but also called him a "one-year wonder." The 6-foot-4, 211-pound wideout ran a 4.42 forty at the combine and is one of the draft's best deep threats. After catching lightning in a bottle with Keenan Allen in the second stanza last year, will San Diego swing for the fences on a prospect that needs plenty of coaching in the game's finer aspects? We'll see. Mayock added that the Seahawks also might be interested in Bryant in Round 2.

Clemson WR Martavis Bryant worked out for the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, St. Louis Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Aaron Wilson.

"Bryant has a combined total of 22 visits and private workouts, including visits with the Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions," Wilson wrote on Sunday. The 6-foot-4, 211-pound wideout could hear his name called in the second round of the draft.

After selecting a CB in Round 1, Steelers RCB Ike Taylor believes Pittsburgh will tab a WR such as Clemson WR Martavis Bryant in Round 2.

It's interesting that Taylor mentions Bryant by name, particularly because the club needs to take a WR early, and covets a size/speed prospect that can get downfield. Essentially, that describes Bryant perfectly. The 6-foot-4 Bryant ran an official 4.42 second forty at the combine, tied for the fifth-fastest amongst wide receivers. If Bryant ran better routes or caught all the balls he should, he'd be a first-round pick. But his strengths -- a big burner who can pop the top off a defense -- make him an intriguing Round 2 option.

Clemson WR Martavis Bryant visited and worked out for the Bucs, according to Aaron Wilson.

"Bryant has a combined total of 22 visits and private workouts, including visits with the Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions," according to Wilson, who added the receiver privately worked out for the Rams. Bryant had a high drop rate of 12.5 percent, according to Greg Peshek, but he has plenty of vertical speed.

Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports that the Baltimore Ravens have interest in Clemson WR Martavis Bryant.

"Although the Ravens aren't among Bryant's 22 combined visits and private workouts, a source says they've maintained interest in him throughout the draft process and conducted a meeting with him at the NFL scouting combine," Wilson wrote on Saturday. Bryant has already visited the San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steeelers, Miami Dolphins and the Detroit Lions. The 6-foot-4, 211-pound wideout could hear his name called in the second round of the draft.

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 NFL.com'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.

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.
