has been levied a four-game suspension by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to Adam Schefter.

Earlier in the day, ESPN ranked Bryant as it's No. 1 NFL prospect.

"Last year, Bryant was only the second rookie receiver since 1995 to gain over 20 yards per reception (minimum 25 catches)," ESPN said. (Kenny Stills in 2013 was the other.) "An offseason elbow procedure put Bryant a bit behind Markus Wheaton in Steelers training camp, which could keep him from becoming a starter until late this season or perhaps next season. But in all truth, the only thing standing between Bryant and stardom may be a little waiting time."

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

His suspension has been appealed according to Schefter and could be reduced down to two games.

At Clemson, Bryant had 61 receptions for 1,354 yards and 13 touchdowns along with a 17-yard carry and 291 yards on 14 kickoff returns in 1,020 snaps over 37 games (13 starts) in his career ... first in school history in yards per reception (22.2) and tied for 10th in receiving touchdowns.
