His measurables are very impressive and the little we have seen from him in the Pre-Season showed he has potential. The question is can he come in and make a difference and possibly start for the Carolina Panthers? I'm hoping we see more of Mr. Bryant in the Pre-Season if possible with a quarterback who can actually get him the ball instead of Clausen (Hopefully see how he does with Cam). If this project works out correctly we could have the deep threat and Goal Line receiver we've been looking for

Here are some of his draft notes coming out of college

Notes:

The Newport News, Va., native was a dual-threat quarterback as a prep, who also played wide receiver, free safety and defensive end. Redshirted and spent the 2007 season as quarterback. Was moved to tight end in ’08 and saw action in five games on special teams, where he blocked two punts. In ’09, he caught 18 passes for 251 yards (13.9-yard average) and two touchdowns on his way to first-team all-conference honors in 10 games. Recorded 5-55-0 (11.0) in eight games in ’10, missing three games with a torn MCL in his left knee. Played in all 11 games in ’11, catching 21-371-2 (17.7).

Positives:

Physically talented — intriguing length, speed and athletic ability. Covers ground with long, fluid strides and can threaten the field vertically. Has a 42-inch vertical. Adjusts to throws. Competitive after the catch. Has some upside.

Summary:

Lean, athletic, underdeveloped, receiver-sized, "flex" tight end with raw physical ability and discouraging intangibles. Developmental project requiring patience and has to be managed closely to have a chance.

Here is some videos of Lamont Bryant (sorry it's very limited video sources of Bryant)

personally i think we're due for a total nobody with "questionable intangibles" to break out for us at wide receiver

it's been like 9 or 10 years since the last time that happened

Hopefully during Gettleman's "top to bottom" evaluation of our roster he will ask Ron when does this guy get a chance?

On a side-note...hey Zod...can we have Gettleman's name added to the Huddle dictionary so it doesn't show up with a red line underneath it every time I type his name?

I'm guessing it's this as well.. He's kept quiet throughout the offseason so my guess is he has stopped those ways
