Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M

After redshirting in 2003, Bryant was a Freshman All-America honoree in 2004 after registering 34 tackles (3.5 for loss) and starting 12 games for the Aggies. He kept it up the next year, making 28 tackles (7.5 for loss) and three sacks. Bryant missed the last three games and four of the last five in 2006 because of injury and was held to 19 tackles (2.5 for loss) and one sack. But, he's come back with a vengeance in his senior season, posting a career-high 45 tackles in the regular season (six for loss) and one sack. As a result, he was named All-Big 12 honorable mention. The most obvious thing about Bryant is his big body, which makes him the perfect hole-clogger at nose tackle. But, he has great speed for his size and by using that speed and great strength, can get into the backfield and cause problems. That size also means that he can bat down passes (nine pass breakups in his career) and block kicks (three career blocked kicks). Bryant is widely rated as a second-round pick, so he won't have to wait to know where he is going. He'll be an asset to a team looking for an active, disruptive big body in the middle of their front line. Update (12/30/07): Bryant was held to a single tackle in Texas A&M's 24-17 loss to Penn State in Saturday night's Alamo Bowl, finishing the season with 46 total tackles (13 solo, 33 assists). Update (1/31/08): In Saturday's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., Bryant had a solid outing, picking up two tackles (both solo)-- one of which was for a loss of two yards and he also recovered a fumble in the South's 17-16 win over the North. Update (3/14/08): At Texas A&M's Pro Day on the 5th, Bryant ran a best of 4.9 seconds in the 40 (better than the 5.0 40 that he registered at the combine). Currently, Bryant is projected as a second or third round pick by most draft services.
