Meet the Saints’ Newest Addition: Bryan Bresee
The New Orleans Saints have added Clemson defensive tackle Bryan Bresee to their roster as the 29th pick of the 2023 NFL Draft. Bresee, who stands at 6’5″ and weighs 300 pounds, is known for his speed, strength, and agility on the field. He is expected to make an immediate impact on the Saints’ defensive line and help the team push for a playoff spot this season.
Bresee played two seasons for Clemson, recording 83 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, and 14 sacks in his college career. He was ranked as the No. 1 defensive lineman in the 2023 draft class by many NFL experts and was widely considered a steal for the Saints at pick 29.
What Experts are Saying About the Saints’ Draft Pick
Many NFL experts are praising the Saints for their selection of Bryan Bresee in the 2023 draft, noting his impressive college career and potential for growth in the NFL. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. called Bresee “a game-changer” and predicted that he would be a pro bowler within three seasons. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah also complimented the pick, saying “Bresee is a dominant interior player who will create havoc for opposing offenses.”
Head coach Sean Payton has also expressed excitement about Bresee’s addition to the team, saying “We are thrilled to have Bryan join the Saints family. He brings a level of talent and energy to the defensive line that we have been looking for to take our team to the next level.”
What This Means for the Saints’ Future
The addition of Bryan Bresee to the Saints’ defensive line is expected to bolster the team’s defense and increase their chances of making a deep playoff run in the upcoming season. The Saints finished the 2022 season with a 12-5 record and a wildcard playoff berth, but were knocked out in the divisional round by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With the addition of Bresee, along with other key signings and draft picks, the Saints are poised to make a serious push for the Super Bowl in the upcoming season and establish themselves as one of the premier teams in the NFL.
