Draft Zone Spotlight: Armonty Bryant, DE, East Central University
Some players will have to answer character questions this year, and one of those players who will be asked questions will be Armonty Bryant. The very talented Defensive End from East Central University will have to answer many questions about his 2012 arrest for supposedly selling $20 dollars worth of Marijuana to an undercover Cop, during practice. Armonty has since tried to shed that bad name and has been a work horse. There was nobody at the Texas versus the Nation game that could block him, which has now opened the door for him to attend the NFL Scouting Combine in Indy. I expect the athletic Bryant to have a very good combine, and if he answers the questions correctly his stock could get up to the high 3rd round area. Keep an eye on this kid; he is a beast on the football field. He has great moves and is extremely talented.
