Bryan Bresee was selected by the New Orleans Saints as the 29th pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Bresee was a highly-regarded recruit out of high school and chose Clemson over schools like Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia.

He battled injuries during his time at Clemson, including a torn ACL and a severe case of strep throat that led to a kidney infection.

Despite his injuries, Bresee had an impressive start to his college career, earning ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman.

Bresee's younger sister passed away from brain cancer in September, and he dedicated his performances on the field to her memory.

He offers strong athleticism for a defensive tackle, running a 4.86 second 40-yard dash and recording a 29 inch vertical jump.

Bresee registered 51 tackles and nine sacks over 25 games played during his three years at Clemson.

He was twice named first-team USA Today All-American in high school and earned Freshman All-America honors from The Athletic, ESPN, and Rivals.

1Despite his injury history, there were no signs during the evaluation period that his health issues would slow him down in the NFL.

With injuries limiting his experience in college, Bresee has the potential to develop even further in the NFL.
