You don't often see a projected first-round selection as an "under the radar" type of player, but Bryan Bresee is certainly the exception. The physical attributes are all there for Bresee, as is evident by his immense frame and impressive 4.86 second 40 time. The production, however, is not there.

Bresee dealt with injuries during his final two years in college, and with only three years in school, that does not bode well for his draft stock. He is a very high-risk, high-reward player in this draft, as there is no denying that a healthy Bresee could be dominant in the NFL.

He's physically imposing, impressively athletic, and when he's healthy, he has jaw-dropping game tape. The Minnesota Vikings have a glaring need on the defensive interior, and with Bryan Bresee slowly becoming an under-the-radar prospect, he could be exactly what the team needs to fix their upfront issues.
