BEREA, Ohio — In the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Andrew Berry and the Cleveland Browns have selected TE Harrison Bryant with the 115th overall pick.

Bryant is a tight end out of Florida Atlantic University.

He is a 2019 John Mackey award winner and a first-team All-American. He led all tight ends nationally with 65 receptions for 1004 yards (15.4 per) and scoring seven touchdowns in 12 starts.

When he was a junior, Bryant was a first-team All-Conference USA selection with 45 receptions, 662 yards and four touchdowns.

“Harrison really impressed us throughout the spring, starting at the Senior Bowl, working through the Combine and up to some of the post-combine virtual stuff we did. He is a really blue-collar young man. His work ethic is great. He is going to bring really good leadership," said Assistant Director of Scouting Glenn Cook. "As a football player, his pass-catching ability is probably what stands out the most. You will probably hear that a lot, but he is an athletic, natural sure-handed guy, really tough and competitive after the catch. It got to the point where we were staring at the board and you kind of couldn’t ignore the fact that he was still up there.”

Bryant is the Browns' first pick of the day, joining Jedrick Wills, Grant Delpit, Jordan Elliott and Jacob Phillips who were drafted in the first three rounds of the draft.

"I feel like that can bring a lot of versatility to the team, lining up anywhere I’m asked and really lining up wherever I need to and whatever I need to do to win and help the team," Bryant said.

Cleveland will draft again in the fifth round with the 160th pick obtained in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts Friday night.
