OVERVIEW

It was an up and down year for Bresee who dealt with medical issues and family tragedy. His movement ability for a 300 pounder would be fun to watch alongside Quinnen Williams, but his range (20-35) is off for a Jets landing.

SUMMARY

Bryan Bresee is big frame, athletic interior trench player with high pedigree. Bresee was highly heralded coming into the 2022 season but had to struggle through tragedy off the field and had battle through injury on top of that. Bresee finished 2022 with 3.5 sacks and 5.5 tackles for loss in 10 games.

Bresee has a big sturdy build at 6'5" 305 lbs. His testing showed a fairly unique athletic profile. He's quicker than most at his size running a 4.86s forty with 1.71 10-yard split. Bresee hasn't quite looked explosive recently, though, and none of his testing refuted that.

As a run defender, Bresee is more of a slanter and penetrator than someone who will constantly take on doubles. Despite his size, it's Bresee's quickness that gets him splash plays. He's most effective when he can get a step on OL at the snap and navigate his way into the backfield. Bresee's 2022 film didn't show particularly notable straight-on power against IOL but it's hard to say how much of that was health related after battling through a kidney infection.

Bresee, when at his best, is a good to great pass rusher. He has a solid rip and swim and is good at powering his way into the backfield once he has a step on IOLs. Bresee didn't have too many opportunities isolated against IOLs but usually took advantage in 1-on-1 situations. Bresee is great at stunts and is able to really show off his speed when building momentum in space. Bresee needs to get his change of direction back to where it was in 2020 in order to improving his finishing ability in the backfield.

Overall Bresee is full of talent but is missing the juice he showed early in his Clemson career. Any team investing high with him is assuming he can reclaim that form. If he does, he can be an above average starter at the next level.
