5 potential NFL draft destinations for DB Brian Branch

The 2022-23 college football season will conclude on Monday night when the Georgia Bulldogs take on the TCU Horned Frogs for the college football playoff national championship.

Now that the season is all but over, it is time to look ahead to the 2023 NFL draft.

You hear Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban speak constantly about players “creating value” for themselves. Perhaps nobody created more value for their draft stock this season than Alabama defensive back Brian Branch.

The junior from Fayetteville, Ga. turned heads during his third season in Tuscaloosa where he become one of the most feared defensive backs in the country.

Branch’s strong 2022 season has skyrocketed his draft stock to a possible mid-first-round selection come April.

Here are five potential landing spots for Branch.
