Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AUSTIN BRYANT: Clemson, 6037 271 4.75. Two year starter from Pavo, GA. First-team All-America in 2017 and second-team All-ACC. This past season was third-team All- ACC and voted most outstanding player in the Cotton Bowl in win over Notre Dame. A rangy end who had to wait his turn to get a starting nod on Clemson’s defense. He broke out in 2017 with 15.5 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks. Even though he is underrated by some, he shouldn’t be overlooked. He brings as much power presence to the table as any defensive end in this class. Moves well enough to account for some edge threat, but his real game is once he gets in contact with blockers he can really do damage. A flexible athlete with excellent initial quickness. A sure tackler who is instinctive and reactive. Uses a hand swipe off the blocker’s hand as he works upfield. Good motor and effort to get at the ball. Good long trap awareness. Gets his hands up in the throwing lane. Makes the quarterback throw out of a well. Could get stronger on runs right at him. Gets tall at times and blockers can roll him out. Must develop more hand rush tools. 2018 stats: 43 T, 14.5 TFL, 8 sacks, 5 QBH. Medical exclusion at Combine, right pec. Second/third round. (A-34 5/8, H-9 5/8, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
