The ranked criteria to make the cut included being drafted in the third round or later, entered the NFL between 2012 and 2014, fewer than five games started, has not signed a contract extension and age 26 or younger.
"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.
