George Bryan NFL Draft Profile

George Bryan, Senior, Tight End, North Carolina State



After redshirting in 2007, George Bryan was forced into action as a freshman. The top two tight ends on the depth chart struggled through some injuries and <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 />Bryan stepped up and did a superb job considering the circumstances. On the year Bryan started six games and caught 18 passes for 201 yards. Bryan also used his 6-5, 265 pound body as a great target in the red zone and ended his freshman season with four of his 18 receptions going for touchdowns.

By 2009 Bryan was a huge part of North Carolina State’s passing offense. He ranked second on the team with 40 receptions and six touchdowns. Bryan did not put up gaudy numbers in 2010, catching 35 passes for 369 yards and three touchdowns.


Final Projection:

At 6-5 and 265 pounds, Bryan has the size to be a great tight end in the NFL. He has good hands, decent quickness and is a good enough blocker to hold his own at the next level. With another decent year at UNC, Bryan could be the second or third best tight end in this class and be a second round draft pick.
