If Bryant were AJ Green coming out of college, he would have been the first WR off the board...
As a 4th round pick, he has the athleticism to develop into a credible threat...perhaps not at Green's level, but that will be just fine with me...
AJ Green was at a completely different level coming into the draft compared to Bryant. However, if there is anyone to model your game after, AJ Green would be high on anyone's list.
The good thing is we dont need him to be AJ Green
2015 NFL Draft
1) Shane Ray-OLB
2) Quintin Rollins-DB
3) TJ Yeldon-RB
4) Jeff Heuerman-TE
5) Adrian Amos-FS
6) Kyle Emmanuel-OLB
6) Antwan Goodley-WR
7) Shane Carden-QB
I think he probably wont dress for more games than he plays in as a rookie, but thats just me.
1.22 OLB Shane Ray 6'3" 245 lbs. Missouri (1)
2.56 CB Jalen Collins 6'1" 203 lbs. Louisiana State (2)
3.87 TE Clive Walford 6'4" 251 lbs. Miami (2-3)
4.121 DE Henry Anderson 6'6" 294 lbs. Stanford (4)
5.160 WR Stefon Diggs 6'0" 195 lbs. Maryland (5)
6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel 6'3" 255 lbs. North Dakota State (6)
6.212c CB Quandre Diggs 5'9" 196 lbs. Texas (7)
7.239 RB John Crockett 6'0" 217 lbs. North Dakota State (7-FA)
Its actually an interesting comparison from a physical standpoint. Same exact height and weight.
Bryant had the better 40, short shuttle, vertical
Green had the better arm length, 3 cone, and most important stat...production
Same bench, same broad jump +/- 2
Bryant is insanely raw, while green was insanely polished. I still think the best (ceiling) comparison for him is Chris Henry, another bengal...which would be a great return on a 4th round pick.
For as much as i didnt like the pick, it sure would be nice to land a gem in the 4th round like a chris henry or brandon marshall

Justin Brown is clearly ahead of Heyward-Bey. 85 with camp bodies.
Justin Brown with an encouraging practice. Soft hands, has big catch radius.
Lovin' the positives from camp regarding JB.
We all know AB is gonna his usual sick self. Stiff competition for the #2WR between Moore, Brown and Wheaton.
When the cream rises to the top, this team will be quite deep at the WR position. They are deep because the talent is not only there, but also at the QB spot. That is a dangerous combination.
With the addition of Munchak and the talent that surrounds that O-line, this team is a ticking time bomb. And there are sticks of dynamite all over the place.
