PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – The Steelers drafted wide receiver Martavis Bryant in the fourth round of last year’s draft, and that pick has paid off big time for the team as the rookie has burst onto the scene the last two weeks recording seven catches for 123 yards and three touchdowns.
Starkey and Mueller talked with Bryant’s wide receiver coach at Clemson, Jeff Scott, to learn more about the receiver and what the ceiling is for him.
“I think the sky’s the limit for him,” Scott said. “I really think Pittsburgh got a first-round draft pick in Martavis just because he had to kind of sit and wait his time at Clemson behind Sammy [Watkins] and DeAndre [Hopkins] maybe they were able to get him at a lot cheaper spot, but I think in the years to come he’s going to be playing just like a first-round draft pick will for the Steelers.”
Scott also told us what it is about Bryant that makes him such a special talent.
“Obviously, his size,” Scott said about Bryant’s 6’4, 211-pound frame. “He’s got really good height and good length and he can really run. A lot of times, some of the bigger receivers that you find, maybe they’re more possession guys or just a jump ball type receivers, but he’s one of those rare talents.”
