Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about HUNTER BRYANT: Washington, 6022 248 4.76. Junior entry, three-year starter, Issaquah, WA. Career got off to a hot start in 2017 but a knee injury forced him into surgery which kept him out of all but five games in 2018. Was still fighting through lingering issues from that injury early last fall but he played every game. Sat out his bowl game and earned first-team All Pac 12 honors, falling just short of re-writing the program’s all-time tight end record book. An above average athlete, route runner, and ball catcher who lacks ideal size and strength. Has the look of a tweener but this role is becoming more and more popular in the NFL. If his knee checks out and he stays healthy, he can be a chess piece-receiving option for a team looking to create mismatches. Receiver-caliber route running and ball skills. Gets off the line in a hurry and will consistently gain separation on slant routes. His big body makes him a matchup nightmare against nickel corners. Attacks the ball with his hands, won’t let it into his body. Adjusts seamlessly to the pass away from his body. Shows concentration down the field and in traffic. A reliable pass catcher who can be a quarterback’s best friend on third downs and near the end zone. Speed and quickness is well above average for the position. Credible-enough blocker that gives a lot of effort through the whistle. Will do what he can against defensive linemen. Gets nice initial pop and can block on the move. Will dominate corners in the open field. Lacks height and reach. May not be able to bulk up much more and he is too small to play the traditional Y-tight end role. Doesn’t get movement as a blocker and struggles to stick to defensive linemen. Won’t get past a secondary as a straight line runner. Needs to get north quicker after the catch. 2019 stats: 52-825, 15.9 ypr, 3 TD. OSR:11/19. Third/fourth round. (A-32, H-10 3/8, VJ-32.5, SS-4.46).
