PROSPECT SUMMARY - BRADY BREEZE

Brady Breeze has aligned both to the field and boundary as a defensive back. He plays with adequate reactive athleticism, as evidenced in his agility and body control. In the run game, he comes downhill with urgency and is eager to get to the football. He needs to be more consistent as a wrap-up tackler but has shown the ability to do so. In the passing game, he plays with good instincts. It helps him to get off the hash quickly and to his position in zone coverage. He also projects as a good special teams player.

Ideal Role: Backup safety, core special teamer.

Scheme Fit: Any defensive scheme.

FILM EVALUATION

Written by Drae Harris

Games watched: Wisconsin (2019), Cal (2019), Washington St (2019)

Best Game Studied: Wisconsin (2019)

Worst Game Studied: Cal (2019)

Football IQ: He plays the game with good football IQ. This is demonstrated with his instinctive and savvy play. His football IQ makes up for his athletic limitations.

Tackling: He is eager and willing in the run game. However, as the last line of defense, I'd rather see him be more of a consistent wrap-up tackler. There are several instances of him being a cutter as a tackler, which may not be as effective in the NFL.

Versatility: He has less than ideal versatility. He is a player that could play both safety positions and should be relegated only to that. He won't give you much coverage upside in the slot.

Range: Although he doesn’t have great speed, he plays the game with good instincts. This helps his range as he's able to anticipate and get to his deep zone quicker. He shows a sufficient level of ability to get to a deep 9 route from the single-high position.

Ball Skills: He could use some improvement in the passing game with regards to ball skills. He is a contact seeker at safety and it sometimes deters him from finding the ball. There are moments where he seemingly settles to make the hit when he could have gotten his hands on the ball.

Run Defense: He is eager and willing as a run defender. He comes downhill with urgency in the run game. He needs to be more consistent as a wrap-up tackler, but there are no indications that he won't be able to do that in the NFL.

Functional Athleticism: He is an average athlete overall. Although he doesn’t have elite straight-line speed, he plays faster due to his good instincts. He does have some quickness, but his overall athleticism doesn’t seem to be the strongest part of his game. 

Competitive Toughness: He is a competitor who plays hard. He also demonstrates his good physical toughness in his eagerness in the run game. 

Flexibility: He lacks true positional flexibility. He should be relegated to only playing safety. He only gives you adequate coverage potential in the slot. 

Special Teams: He projects as a good core special teams player in the NFL. This is due to the physicality in which he plays the game. He also has some quickness which will help him as a coverage player.
