OVERALL

Breeze is a great overall football player with good instincts and intelligence for the game, but he lacks some overall athletic ability. Best when in the box, he's an aggressive player with an explosive tackling style. He does a good job tracking the ball and filling in running lanes between the hashes, but he can get extended a bit on the sidelines because of a lack of speed.

In the passing game, Breeze does his best work when he's able to read the quarterback's eyes and track the ball in the air. He struggles most when asked to carry receivers deep in man coverage. His football intelligence and short-area quickness allows him to cover routes in front of him. Breeze is a great special teams player because of his physicality and aggressive play style. He may never become a starter but will have a defined role as a backup and special teamer.

     

GRADE: 7.1/10 (Future Role Player/Spot Starter, Round 4)

OVERALL RANK: 150/300

POSITION RANK: S10
