Martavis Bryant

Yes, Tajh Boyd has Sammy Watkins to throw the ball to, but a threat many may not be aware of is Martavis Bryant. Bryant caught seven passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in the Tigers' spring game.

The lengthy receiver's speed is comparable to that of Sammy Watkins and he can go up and get the ball in traffic. It will be interesting to see if he emerges as a go-to receiver this year with the added attention that will be given to Watkins. Bryant is second on the depth chart behind Watkins.

Head coach Dabo Swinney said he expects Bryant to be one of the receivers to fill the void left by Deandre Hopkins. Bryant saw limited action last season, catching 10 passes for 305 yards and four touchdowns. He has the talent to improve those numbers immensely.
