"I think he’s going to be a Pro Bowler in the next two years," said Boyd to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I definitely see him having 1,000 yards this year."

Bryant had 26 catches for 549 yards (21.1 YPC) and eight touchdowns in his rookie season (9 games, started 3). The eight touchdowns were tied for fourth most among NFL rookies and he was only the eighth Steeler's rookie to reach 500 yards.

"It’s funny, because the roles are reversed a little bit now," said Boyd. "I was at Clemson before he got there, and now I’m coming here and asking him questions about what’s going on. To see how much he has grown in a year, just from his mentality and seeing his approach now. ... It’s only his second year, but his mindset is of a fourth or fifth-year veteran. The guy is going to be special."
