NFL Draft Rumors: Martavis Bryant a good fit for San Diego Chargers?

Former Clemson Tigers’ wide receiver Martavis Bryant is one of the biggest questions in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Bryant has great size (6’5, 200 pounds) and is very talented, but was extremely inconsistent and at times, he disappeared from games.

Tom Krasovic of U-T San Diego wonders if Bryant would be a good fit for the Chargers.

How it could work out: The Chargers seek a fast, downfield receiver, judging by their offer to Steve Smith last month. Philip Rivers has clicked with several tall receivers over the years, and another tall pass-catcher could pay off in the red zone, where the Chargers need to improve. In time, a player such as Bryant could be of help, more so if his ongoing workouts with Hall of Famer Cris Carter pay off.

How it may not work out: Bryant may be too raw in several aspects to fit into San Diego’s offense as a rookie or even a sophomore. Some draftniks project him for the second or third round. The Chargers would be reaching there. For them he could make some sense in the fourth or fifth round.

Bryant made 42 receptions for 828 yards and seven touchdowns for the Tigers in 2013.
