Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs joined the program in the 2022 offseason as a transfer from Georgia Tech. Like other transfers in recent seasons, Gibbs seamlessly joined the team and had immediate contributions.
Though he has not declared for the draft, Gibbs is expected to depart from the college ranks to play in the NFL.
Recent mock drafts have Gibbs projected to be selected late in the first round or early in the second.
There are former Alabama running backs all over the league, and the demand for a versatile back like Gibbs is high.
Here are five potential landing spots for Gibbs.

The Bills have offensive stars such as receiver Stefon Diggs and quarterback Josh Allen. The missing piece for this team is a do-it-all back, which is exactly what Gibbs offers.

Who knows what the future holds for the Ravens? MVP-caliber quarterback Lamar Jackson’s future with the franchise is up in the air, and the offense is lacking in multiple positions. Gibbs would certainly be a boost.
Kansas City Chiefs

Despite losing Tyreek Hill, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs‘ offense have remained elite. Adding a versatile back such as Gibbs to the mix makes a Super Bowl contender even better.

The Broncos need help in multiple ways. Russell Wilson hasn’t played his best, but the receivers are there. Perhaps strengthening the run game will help open the passing game.
