NFL Draft Rewind: No. 29 Bryan Bresee


The NFL Draft kicks off with its opening spherical on Thursday in Kansas Metropolis, so Rivals is looking again at its projected first-round picks after they have been highschool prospects. We transfer on to our projected No. 29 – Clemson defensive sort out Bryan Bresee, who was the top-ranked prospect within the 2020 Rivals250.

Bresee can also be the seventeenth Rivals Camp Collection alum amongst our first 29 projected picks.

The place they have been ranked: The Damascus, Md., five-star defensive sort out was the top-ranked prospect within the 2020 class.

Recruitment: Clemson, Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Georgia and Alabama have been the finalists for Bresee. After one other journey all the way down to see the Tigers, Bresee canceled a go to to Oklahoma and set his dedication date within the spring earlier than his senior season. There have been no surprises as Clemson gained out.

Greatest query: Can he keep wholesome? Throughout his time at Clemson, Bresee suffered a knee damage and had shoulder surgical procedure.

Recollections: I’ll always remember Bresee’s aggressive drive and hearth particularly on the Rivals 5-Star Problem in Atlanta.

The five-star defensive lineman had not deliberate to do the weightlifting portion however after seeing Bryce Foster and others get on the bench and pump out reps, you may see Bresee get amped up about it and unexpectedly he was decided to compete in that portion of the occasion as effectively. I don’t suppose he had probably the most reps however simply getting that fired up about it and displaying that aggressive drive was positively one thing to see.

He was additionally extremely pushed on the sector as effectively. With an enormous, thick neck and barrel chest, Bresee was not going to get pushed round by anyone and that is earlier in his highschool profession when he was enjoying a little bit extra defensive finish than defensive sort out.

That occasion was additionally very telling towards one criticism of Bresee by NFL scouts that he doesn’t essentially have subtle strikes.

There’s little doubt the five-star gained quite a lot of reps on the 5-Star Problem and he did have a wonderful push-pull transfer and spin transfer after first contact however generally Bresee leaned an excessive amount of on simply brute energy to win reps. I don’t suppose it ought to maintain him out of the primary spherical as a result of he’s a extremely gifted participant however the damage historical past and that truth may sluggish issues down a little bit bit for him.
