Number Three: Skill Set

Now let’s get into the fun stuff.

Nigel Bradham has a skill set that with a full healthy season starting at the linebacker position could make him a top-five player at his position. The thought of having Alex Anzalone, Demario Davis, and Nigel Bradham should make Saints fans extremely excited.

The best way to describe Bradham’s skill set is a solid pass coverage linebacker who hits with intent. The New Orleans front seven is now arguably the best in football and if Bradham cracks the starting lineup, he could easily have the best year of his career.

Bradham has already seen a ton of success in his career as he’s logged 619 tackles, 34 tackles for a loss, 21 quarterback hits, eight and a half sacks, five forced fumbles, five fumbles recovered, 33 passes defended, three interceptions, and two defensive touchdowns.
