With the 115th pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected TE Harrison Bryant (6-5, 240 lbs, Florida Atlantic). Bryant was the team’s fourth round selection and the first of Day 3.

Scouting Reports

Here is a scouting report from CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler, who projected Bryant to be a 3rd-round pick and the 3rd-best tight end on his board.

A three-year starter at Florida Atlantic, Bryant lined up at “F” tight end in head coach Lane Kiffin’s spread offense, occasionally seeing snaps inline, but mostly detached. He led all FBS tight ends in receptions and receiving yards as a senior and became the first tight end from a non-Power 5 program to win the Mackey Award as the nation’s best tight end.

Bryant is an athletic receiver with the agility and ball skills to be productive in the quick game (slants, hooks, etc.) or down the seam. He is an efficient, try-hard competitor as a move blocker, but doesn’t have the power to face off against NFL defensive linemen on the edge. Overall, Bryant doesn’t have ideal bulk or power for the position, but he is a versatile pass-catcher with the savvy routes and adjustment skills to handle “F” tight end duties in an NFL offense.

Here is what Pro Football Focus said about Bryant:

How He Fits the Browns

The Browns have David Njoku, a former first-round pick, and then also signed Austin Hooper this offseason. Now, they add Bryant, who is a versatile pass-catcher as well. For a team that lacked receiving tight ends a year ago, Cleveland is now full of them.
