Kelly Bryant Discusses His Entrance into the SEC
Following the departure of one of the SEC's top quarterbacks in Drew Lock, the Missouri Tigers could be just fine with how they see succeed Lock.
After playing two seasons for the Clemson Tigers, Kelly Bryant left Clemson through the first four games of the 2018 season and decided to take his services to Columbia, Missouri, for his senior season.
Bryant threw for over 2,800 yards with 13 touchdown passes and led Clemson to an ACC title and an appearance in the College Football Playoff as a sophomore in 2017.
During Missouri's visit to SEC Media Days, Missouri's incoming signal caller discussed the process involved in going from Clemson to Missouri along with what Missouri offensive coordinator Derek Dooley saw in Bryant.
"He (Derek Dooley) saw what I did at Clemson. He loved the things that he saw from a passing standpoint and also what I could do with my legs." Bryant said.
Prior to calling the plays with the Missouri Tigers, Dooley was the wide receivers coach with the Dallas Cowboys for five seasons. According to Bryant, that experience with players such as Dez Bryant, Tony Romo and Dak Prescott can aid his game tremendously.
"Being where he was at with the Cowboys. Seeing Dak (Prescott) then seeing Tony (Romo), having that experience within the Cowboys offense, bringing it to Missouri and being able to put yourself in a position where he's going to make plays for you where you're comfortable. He's not going to call anything where he's comfortable but where the quarterback's not comfortable. He's going to cater to you." Bryant said.
