Buffalo Bills 2023 NFL Draft Target: Bryan Bresee

The final defensive tackle is Bryan Bresee out of Clemson, who had an excellent first year in college with 23 total tackles, four sacks and 6.5 tackles for a loss. However, he wasn’t really able to build on it much after suffering a torn ACL early in the 2021 season.

This past season, Bresee was able to return but looked like he hadn’t gotten back to full strength even with 3.5 sacks and 5.5 tackles for a loss. During workouts this draft season, Bresee looked like he was close to regaining his form pre-injury with a Relative Athletic Score of 9.59.

Similar to Kancey, Bryan Bresee likely would require an early pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, either their first round pick or if they traded back an early second round pick. The question will be whether or not the Bills want to use an early pick on that position however, Bresee has tremendous upside and could be a difference-maker for this defense in the near future.
