Accolades: Senior Bowl, John Mackey Award (2019).
Athleticism: Bryant is very athletic, but in a very sneaky way. Because of his long frame, it doesn’t look like he’s moving and that allows defenders to misjudge just how fast he is moving.
Route Running/Footwork: Bryant could use more consistency in this department, and it all starts with his length. While he is long and moves well for it, his inconsistent stride length is going to hold him back from really improving this trait.
Catch Ability: There is no doubting Bryant’s catch ability, as he has a good pair of hands. Uses his frame well to protect his catch against defenders and was able to bully defenders a little bit in the CUSA. He won’t be able to do that as much when he goes pro.
Blocking Ability: Bryant isn’t primarily a blocker, but he is a capable one. Offers limited support in run blocking. Struggles with hand usage and can get beat by finesse.
Football IQ/Awareness: Seems aware enough on the field. Finds soft spots in zone coverage with ease. Get’s open often.
Overall: Harrison Bryant certainly produced in his senior season, being the only tight end to finish the season a 1000 yard receiver. He led the country with 65 receptions (more than any tight end) and tied for the third highest touchdown total in the country. Bryant even produced 6 catches for 79 yards against Ohio State, the highest totals allowed by the Buckeyes to a tight end all season long. Bryant is a fantastic prospect, because of his length and athleticism, he can become a solid vertical threat in the league.
