Mann high on Bryant
Receivers coach Richard Mann believes Bryant will have a role on offense as a rookie. The staff wanted to draft a tall receiver with speed to stretch the field and Bryant remains the only player on the roster who fits that bill.
“I think he’s going to contribute, I really do,” Mann said. “He’s got good speed, he’s a big guy and he can run and catch, that’s the bottom line.
“Martavis is a big guy; he’s different from what we’ve had. As far as with the length, we feel like we can utilize his talents in the red zone. He’s got a big reach. He’s got good speed, so we can use him in various ways.”
