Before joining the Huskies, Bryant was a four-star recruit out of Eastside Catholic in Bellevue, WA. He was heavily recruited by schools like Auburn and Oklahoma before setting his sights on Washington.
In three years, Bryant has emerged as one to top-100 players in the nation. His connection with transfer quarterback Jacob Eason was on display in 2019. The two connected for 52 receptions, 825 yards and three touchdowns. His receptions were second-most in UW single-season history by a tight end.
For his stellar season, Bryant garnered first-team All-Pac-12 honors and was named All-America First Team by The Athletic, All-America Third Team by Phil Steele and a finalist for the John Mackey Award.
Hunter is expected to be a high second-round pick.
NFL.com has given Bryant a 6.20 prospect grade, which means he’s a good backup with the potential of becoming a starter.
- Run after catch skills
- Undersized TE
- Needs more physicality at top of routes
- In-line work
