A ‘Culture Changer,’ Seahawks CB Coby Bryant In Good Company With Jim Thorpe Award

When the Seahawks used their fourth round pick at 109th overall on cornerback Coby Bryant, they selected the 2021 Jim Thorpe Award winner. Since 1986, this prestigious honor chosen by the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame recognizes the top defensive back in college football for that season.

Interestingly, Bryant won the award over his Cincinnati teammate, Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, who was taken fourth overall by the Jets in the first round. Gardner certainly garnered more buzz and hype going into the draft and understandably so. At 6-foot-3 with 4.4 speed, he possesses all the traits you want in an NFL corner.
