2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #29

Return to Mock Draft

New Orleans
Bryan Bresee



Using the pick acquired from the Broncos in exchange for the rights to (almost retired) head coach Sean Payton, the Saints grab a great fit for the black-and-gold defense. Bryan Bresee started games in all 3 years he was at Clemson. The disruptive D-lineman recorded 15 TFLs, including 9 sacks in 25 games. Still only 21 years old, Bresee could provide a significant upgrade to the interior of New Orleans' defensive line. An excellent blend of size, athleticism, and competitive toughness, Bresee is also a versatile player who lined up all over the front line at Clemson.

Once Derek Carr was signed to take over the reins of the offense it was clear that GM Mickey Loomis' next mission was to fix the D-line which last season ranked 27th in run defense and lost starting defensive tackles David Onyemata and Shy Tuttle in free agency. The tenacious Bresee will join free agent additions Khalen Saunders and Nathan Shepherd on the DL.
