Richard Mann impressed with Martavis Bryant skill set

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers coach Richard Mann believes that his side can utilise the big frame of wideout Martavis Bryant to their advantage next season.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers coach Richard Mann has admitted that he has been impressed with the skill set displayed by rookie wideout Martavis Bryant during his side's practices.

The Steelers selected Bryant in the fourth round of the 2014 Draft out of the Clemson Tigers, and the coach believes that they can use his 6ft 4in frame to their advantage in certain situations as he differs from their other receivers.

"He's a big guy, different from what we've had, as far as his length," Mann told the team's official website.

"We feel like we can utilise his talents in the red zone. He has a big reach. He has good speed. So we can use him in various ways, as far as cleaning things out. He's also a deep threat. He does have the speed."

Bryant recorded 42 receptions for 828 yards along with seven touchdowns in the 2013 season for the Tigers.
