How would he fit

Harrison Bryant would slot in as the #1 TE on the roster and would compete for the second option in the receiving game. Outside of McLaurin, there will be plenty of competition vying for targets between the receiving corps. With his size, fluidity, and ability to stretch the field, Bryant would provide a reliable playmaking target for Haskins.
