The Washington Redskins selected Breeland in the fourth round (102nd overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. He was the tenth cornerback drafted in 2014.[9]

2014 season

On May 16, 2014, the Washington Redskins signed Breeland to a four-year, $2.70 million contract that includes a signing bonus of $486,000.[10][11] He became a starter following a season-ending injury to DeAngelo Hall early in the season.[12] In the Week 7 win against the Tennessee Titans, he recorded his first career interception on quarterback Charlie Whitehurst.[13] He had a breakout performance in the Week 8 win against the Dallas Cowboys.

2015 season

On July 31, 2015, the second day of training camp, it was announced that Breeland would be suspended for the first game of the 2015 season for the citation he was given by Virginia Commonwealth University police for possession of marijuana on August 11, 2014.[17][18] On exactly the same day, he was injured during camp practice and was carted off the field. It was later announced that he sprained his MCL with a recovery period of four to six weeks and would not participate for the rest of training camp.[19] In Week 5, he recorded his first interception of the season against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.[20] In Week 6, Breeland had a solid performance against the New York Jets, having recorded one interception, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries.[21][22]

Despite having a difficult time covering wide receiver Antonio Brown in the Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Breeland recorded his first interception of the season against Ben Roethlisberger.[23] In the Week 16 win, he recorded two interceptions on Chicago Bears quarterback Matt Barkley, which made him the first Redskins player since Fred Smoot in 2001 to start his career recording multiple interceptions in three consecutive seasons.[24]

2017 season

Breeland recorded the first interception of the 2017 season against quarterback Kellen Clemens in the Week 14 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, which he returned for 96 yards for a touchdown.[25]

Following the season, Breeland became an unrestricted free agent.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers signed Breeland on September 25, 2018 after placing Davon House on injured reserve.[28][29][30]

Breeland's first game as a Packer was a 17–31 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 9, after missing several weeks to learn the playbook. In Week 10, against the Miami Dolphins, Breeland recorded his first interception of the season off Brock Osweiler. He injured his groin in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks and missed the next two games. Breeland would return in the Week 14 game against the Atlanta Falcons, where he recorded a 22-yard interception return touchdown off Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, while also having a fumble recovery in the same game that helped seal a 34–20 win for the Packers.

List of 2014 NFL draft early entrants

This list of 2014 NFL draft early entrants consists of college football players who forfeited remaining collegiate eligibility and were declared by the National Football League (NFL) as eligible to be selected in the 2014 NFL draft. This includes juniors and redshirt sophomores who completed high school at least three years prior to the draft. A player that meets these requirements can renounce his remaining NCAA eligibility and enter the draft. Players had until January 15, 2014, to declare their intention to forgo their remaining collegiate eligibility.

A total of 98 underclassmen were granted eligibility for the 2014 draft, eclipsing the previous record from 2013 of 73.In addition to the 98 underclassmen, at least four players who had already received degrees opted not to pursue an additional season of college eligibility for which they may have been eligible: Dion Bailey, Carl Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Hubbard. These players are included in the list below, bringing the total number of players entering the draft with eligibility remaining to 102.Fourteen underclassmen – plus Teddy Bridgewater who graduated with eligibility remaining – were selected in the draft's first round. Sixty-two of ninety-eight underclassmen (63.3%) – 64 of 102 (62.7%) if the graduates are included – were selected in the draft.

List of Clemson Tigers in the NFL Draft

The Clemson University Tigers football team has had 243 players drafted into the National Football League (NFL) since the league began holding drafts in 1936. Each NFL franchise seeks to add new players through the annual NFL Draft. The draft rules were last updated in 2009. The team with the worst record the previous year picks first, the next-worst team second, and so on. Teams that did not make the playoffs are ordered by their regular-season record, with any remaining ties broken by strength of schedule. Playoff participants are sequenced after non-playoff teams, based on their round of elimination (wild card, division, conference, and Super Bowl).Before the merger agreements in 1966, the American Football League (AFL) operated in direct competition with the NFL and held a separate draft. This led to a massive bidding war over top prospects between the two leagues, along with the subsequent drafting of the same player in each draft. As part of the merger agreement on June 8, 1966, the two leagues held a multiple round "Common Draft". Once the AFL officially merged with the NFL in 1970, the "Common Draft" simply became the NFL Draft.Through the 2017 NFL Draft, the highest that a Tiger has ever been drafted is fourth overall, which has happened on three occasions: Banks McFadden in 1939, Gaines Adams in 2007, and Sammy Watkins in 2014. The Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants have drafted the most Tigers, each with seventeen Dashun watson. The only current NFL franchises that have not selected a Clemson Tiger are the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers. Twenty-seven Tigers have been drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft, with the most recent being Shaq Lawson in 2016. The single first round of the NFL Draft with the most Tigers selected was 1979, 1982, 2015, and 2017 with two players. Of the Tigers selected in the NFL Draft, seventeen have been selected to a Pro Bowl, nineteen have been a member of a Super Bowl winning team, and four have achieved both. The most Tigers selected in a single NFL Draft is nine, in 1983 and 2016.
