Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior after totaling 48 tackles/12.5 tackles for loss/6.5 sacks. Junior totals included 34/8/2.5.
Positives: Somewhat athletic college pass rusher who has flashed skill the past three seasons. Displays solid movement skills, fluid if asked to twist or stunt and fast getting out to the sidelines to chase the action. Keeps his feet moving on contact, displays a good closing burst to the action and can bend off the edge then collapse down the line. Plays with leverage, keeps his pads low and displays the ability to make plays in space.
Negatives: Lacks bulk and is easily controlled at the point of attack. Possesses more of a short burst of speed that he cannot sustain.
Analysis: Bryant has displayed flashes of pass rushing skill the past two seasons and may have a spot at the next level as a pass rush specialist standing up over tackle or out of a three-point stance.
