2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report – Hunter Bryant

2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Hunter Bryant #1

University of Washington | Tight End | 6’2″ | 240lbs | Junior

Accolades: 2019 All-America First Team (TheAthletic.com), 2019 All-America Third Team (Phil Steele), 2019 All-America Honorable Mention (Pro Football Focus), 2019 All-Pac-12 First Team. According to UW’s athletic website, Bryant was named UW’s most outstanding offensive player at the postseason awards banquet.

Blocking: A willing blocker but the lack of strength and power due to his frame will limit him in this area. His technique is inconsistent, mid-level ceiling and low floor. His effort is not a question here.

Hands: Above average hands. Focus drops occur and can be frustrating. A hands-catcher who should improve in this area as he develops.

After the catch: This is Bryant’s most prolific area. Dynamic with the ball in his hands and possesses deceiving speed. Breaks tackles and creates YAC with his athleticism and vision.

Character/Injury concerns: No notable character red flags. Missed 13 total games between the 2017-2018 seasons.

Production: A productive player who in 2019 reeled in 52 receptions for 825 yards (15.9 avg) but only three touchdowns. A career stat line of 85 receptions for 1,394 yards (16.4avg) and five touchdowns.

Projection/Grade: I project Bryant to go on Day Three of the 2020 NFL Draft. With a weak tight end class and athleticism and speed is king in the NFL, Bryant may sneak into the second round. My grade is a mid-round-two grade.

A valuable chess piece for an offense with a creative offensive coordinator. Can line up as an H-back, in-line, or out in the slot. Getting Bryant into open space is key as his most valuable asset is his athleticism and dynamics with the ball in his hands. Really reminds me of Evan Engram, although not as talented. Bryant’s biggest concern is his ability to stay healthy and be available to produce for his team. His injury concerns stretch back to his high school days.
