1. Harrison Bryant, Tight End
As good as all the aforementioned players have been for the Cleveland Browns, no one has been standing out more in camp than Harrison Bryant. The rookie fourth-round pick came into the practices as the third option behind Austin Hooper and David Njoku, but then started to put pressure on Njoku with his performance.
Njoku, who had a down season in 2019, struggled out of the gates and Bryant was taking advantage. He was running crisp routes and catching absolutely everything thrown his way. That led to many calling for him to take the job from Njoku — who had requested, then rescinded, a trade.
Over the past few practices, Njoku has gotten back on track and even had a solid performance in the team’s live scrimmage. For that reason, the talk of Bryant supplanting him should fade away but that takes nothing away from what this kid has done.
Bryant has looked the part of an NFL tight end and his receiving prowess should surprise no one. He was phenomenal in this area for FAU and it was really surprising to see him fall into the fourth round.
What this really means for the Browns is they’re incredibly deep at this position. Austin Hooper has looked every bit as good as advertised and there seems to be big plans for Njoku. Bryant, right now, serves as a very talented third option with the upside to start down the road.
