How does Bryan Bresee impact the Saints’ roster?

New Orleans selected the Clemson DT with the 29th pick of the 2023 NFL Draft

New Orleans selects Clemson DT Bryan Bresee 29th overall   85.7 pass rush grade since 2020 (2nd among ACC DTs)

Clemson added two more former five-stars to the NFL with the picks of Myles Murphy and Bryan Bresee, and fellow former five-stars Trenton Simpson (2020) and K.J. Henry (2018) are prime candidates to be selected tonight.

Bryan Bresee makes three Maryland public school products drafted in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Bresee has a larger frame for an NFL DT, standing at 6’5 and 300 pounds. However, even with his size, he is remarkably quick off the line.

Bresee will be entering his first season as a stellar talent at defensive tackle.

Clemson DT Bryan Bresee went through a lot over the past two years, but he looked like a star in 2020. The Saints  bet on the upside and take him at No. 29.

Bresee was ranked the nation's top prep recruit by 24/7 sports coming out of Damascus High School in Maryland.

Bresee suffered from a torn ACL and a kidney infection while at Clemson, which made him miss some time. He also battled a shoulder injury that required offseason surgery in 2022.

Bresee is a Lott Trophy quarterfinalist in 2022, which is an award given to a defensive college player who demonstrates excellence in the field and personal character off the field.

Bresee is not only a star football player, but he was also a standout basketball player in high school. He averaged a double-double of 13.7 points and 11.9 rebounds.

Bresee is on record books after being named the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020. He was only the second player in Clemson history to win the honor.
