Pos: 
Athletic college pass rusher who comes off a disappointing season. Fires off the snap with a quick first step, plays with outstanding pad level and shows a variety of moves with his hands to protect himself. Fast up the field, quickly get to the action and bends off the edge. Explosive and rarely off his feet. Effectively makes plays in space and gets depth on pass drops. Displays good technique to get free from opponents. Solid open-field tackler.
Neg: 
More of a first-step lineman. Takes wide angles around opponents. Showed a lot of inconsistency last year and disappeared in spots.
Analysis: 
Bryant offers solid size, growth potential and athleticism for the next level. He's an athletic defensive end who can be used in a four-man line and drop off the line to play in space and on zone blitzes. Bryant has tremendous upside but must get his game back on track and consistently play at a high level.
