Is Clemson’s Bryan Bresee a possibility for the Eagles in the first round? We started our draft previews last week with two cornerbacks, Christian Gonzalez and Joey Porter Jr. . But we know well as Eagles fans that they love to take Defensive and Offensive Linemen early in the draft. And with the Eagles potentially losing Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Linval Joseph, and Ndamukong Suh this offseason, DT could certainly be what they are looking for in the first round.
They took Jordan Davis in the 1st round last year, and they took Milton Williams in the 3rd round two years ago. But as we saw this season, having a deep rotation on the D-Line is something the team highly values. Even if those two are primed to take a big step forward, and they bring back Hargrave, they could still be looking at DT in the draft.
And if you are looking at DT, Bryan Bresee is the name to watch at pick 10. The Clemson product is getting major hype approaching the draft. And a great combine performance could even put him out of reach for the Eagles. But if he is there at 10, should the Eagles grab him? Is there reason to be concerned about the history of injuries? And does his athletic profile suggest greater production in the NFL than he ever had at Clemson? Here are 5 things you should know about potential Eagles draft pick Bryan Bresee.
