 Copeland Bryan Grade: 3.25
 Position: DE
 Class: 5Sr
 Conference: -
 Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 253
 40 Time: 4.96

BIO: Starting defensive end as a senior, posting 39/10.5/7.5. Totaled 29/2.5/.5 as a sophomore in .03 when he started 10 games at outside linebacker.

POSITIVES: Athletic pass rusher who makes a lot of plays up the field. Fast off the edge, plays with excellent pad level and pursues from the backside with speed. Effectively uses hand technique to stay off blocks and immediately alters his angle of attack. Resilient, rarely off his feet and exploits immobile blockers. Has ability dropped off the line playing space.

NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk, strength and can be handled at the point by lesser opponents. Lacks a sense of urgency to his game.

ANALYSIS: A reserve lineman during his junior campaign, Bryan raised his level of play significantly last year. Lacks the dimensions to be a full-time starter in a three-point stance yet has potential as a situational pass rusher or linebacker in a 34 defense.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
