Pos: 
Long, instinctive safety who effectively reads and diagnoses the action, plays aggressive football and goes hard after opposing ball carriers. Does not bite on play-action passes or ball fakes, displays a terrific head for the ball and fires up the field to defend the run. Disciplined, stays with assignments and wraps up tackling.
Neg: 
Average athlete with limited speed and no burst. Slow to the flanks. Better in the box and up the field.
Analysis: 
Brees is a long, smart defensive back who comes with a special-teams mentality. He'll be limited to strong safety but could add value on coverage units.
