Do not want. Stephen Hill clone.

 no not really. He is a great talent but needs a fire lit under him. When it is lit he can light it up. Good speed good hands. Wouldn't want him as a #1 because of concentration issues, he tends to get lost for games at a time.having said that he would benefit greatly spending time with a coach like Proehl. I say he would be worth a look in 4th or later.

Another guy you might want to watch is a small school guy named Jeff Janis.  Saginaw Valley State I think.  Pretty fast kid and also fairly tall.

 Absolutely I think he will be a good player. my sleeper in the draft. Another late round WR to watch is Jeremy Gallon.

 

 I would not begrudge picking either of these or Bryant.

 The only issue with Gallon is his size but he is a playmaker.

Big Clemson fan here and the guy is a project.  Great, great speed and height.  Needs to put on some weight to fill out his frame.  Has a lot of mental lapses.  For every big, great play he'd make he'd drop 1 and disappear for a 1/3 of the game.  

 

Poor man's Stephen Hill is a good comparison.  

 I think he is better than Hill. I never saw Hill make the kind of catches Bryant has when he was "on".

I've been talking about Bryant for a couple weeks. He's certainly a boom or bust prospect, but I'd be hard pressed to find a WR with the height to speed ratio Bryant has. He probably would've benifitted from another year at Clemson but I can understand leaving when you lose your starting QB. I fully expect him to go in the 2nd round.

If he runs a high 4.2 and looks good in drills, he'll sky rocket into the second round just on potential alone.

 I don't know where this came from but Bryant ain't running no 4.2. I would probably look for 4.4 -4.5

He ran under a 4.3 at Clemson last year and was one of the fastest players on the team up there with Watkins. He could easily run a 4.27/4.28. He's pretty comparable to Watkins speed wise and I'd honestly be shocked if he ran a 4.5.

we won't have to wait too long to find out.

Huge Clemson fan here. I'll reiterate other people's thoughts. Great size, elite speed, and good hands. He has been the fastest kid at Clemson(including Watkins) the past 3 years. My biggest issue is his production. He's played in a pass happy offense and had Watkins on the other side of him all year and still struggled to make plays. All last offseason we heard he was lights out in practice and was going to be a star this year but it just never came to fruition. I love him as an athlete but not as a football player. I think he really could've helped his stock by staying in school one more year. I'd be willing to spend a 4th/5th if our coaches think they can coach through his learning curve.
