The New Orleans Saints have had their struggles when drafting defensive linemen over the past few years. Unfortunately, Marcus Davenport never panned out and Payton Turner has struggled with injuries. However, the Saints may have finally gotten it right with this year’s 1st round NFL Draft pick, Bryan Bresee. The Clemson product has shown flashes all season, but he had a career day this past Sunday versus the Carolina Panthers.
Bresee caused absolute havoc against the Panthers offensive line. He totaled five QB hurries and two QB hits. His seven total pressures were first among any rookies in Week 14. This effort earned Bresee a 79.2 pass-rushing grade by PFF. This grade was fourth in the league among DTs. This was his third game of the season getting a 70+ pass-rushing grade.

This game added to the 22-year-old's impressive campaign, but it was arguably the best game of his career. The rookie just continues to show Saints fans that he has the tools to be an elite pass-rusher in this league. So, Saints fans should be excited for the future of Bryan Bresee.
