Clemson Tigers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is an intriguing second day prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft due to his combination of size and speed, and his raw tools make up for his struggles with drops. Bryant caught 42 passes for 828 yards and seven touchdowns last season, and he did an excellent job of stretching the field deep as the No. 2 wide receiver opposite of top WR prospect Sammy Watkins. This year’s draft is incredibly deep at wide receiver, and Bryant is one of those prospects who could go just about anywhere between the second and fourth rounds.

Per a league source close to the National Football Post’s Aaron Wilson, Bryant is visiting the Indianapolis Colts on a pre-draft visit today, and it’s yet another visit for one of the hottest wide receiver prospects in the pre-draft process when it comes to visits. He’s met with the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, and St. Louis Rams, and there’s no doubt that he could be a great vertical threat at the next level.

Drafting Bryant would give the Colts an embarrassment of riches at the wide receiver position, and they also have a talented tight end duo in Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener to supplement their WR corps of Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks, and more. Blessed with 4.3s wheels and a 6’3″ frame, Bryant can make plays downfield as well as anyone in this year’s class, and he might be like Markus Wheaton was last year; the best deep threat in the class.
