Brian Branch mocked to Vikings in latest 33rd Team mock draft
The Minnesota Vikings roster is undergoing a complete overhaul right now this off-season. They released Eric Kendricks, Adam Thielen, and Cam Dantzler. There are also rumors of them potentially moving on from Harrison Smith. Should the Vikings do that, they’ll have a need at the safety position.
On Friday, the scouting department at the 33rd Team released a mock draft that could help the Vikings by selecting Alabama safety Brian Branch.
The Minnesota Vikings are in need of a safety, and Brian Branch makes a lot of sense. Branch has ball production, solid size and speed, and the versatility to handle multiple spots.
Branch is a player that can really do it all, and his play style fits perfectly with what Brian Flores wants to run in Minnesota.
Branch is a versatile defender who can be used in many ways. Whether you need him to blitz or play in the slot, he can do it all. Branch also brings excellent speed and ball skills.
While Branch does not play a premium position, his versatility is enough of an asset to make him worthy of a first-round pick.
