TE Harrison Bryant (115th Overall)
This one is a pain to try to figure out. He’s not been bad, as Harrison Bryant has shown potential. The problem is that potential isn’t being properly examined and developed. He’s mostly blocking, which is horrid as he’s not a good run blocker, but shockingly a solid pass blocker.
The problem is that Bryant is in an offense that really doesn’t utilize him. The Browns really only throw to Amari Cooper and David Njoku and sometimes Donovan Peoples-Jones. That’s really it. Bryant isn’t getting used, so he can’t show off what he can or can’t do.
The Browns started putting Bryant out at receiver against Baltimore and that may be his best bet to fit in the offense going forward. He’s not elite fast, with just a 4.7 40-time, but Jarvis Landry posted a 4.8 when healthy. Goalline-to-goalline speed is overrated in the. It’s useful, sure, but it’s not necessary. If he can out-leap defensive backs as a receiver and pull down passes, he can have a solid NFL career.
I see a lot of Brian Finneran in him in that regard, though more mobile and agile. Until the Browns passing offense comes to fruition or Bryant goes to a better team, a C- is the best he’s going to earn.
