Latest 2023 NFL mock draft features 4 Alabama players in first round

Former Alabama players make up a decent chunk of the NFL. In fact, it’s often difficult to turn on a game on Sundays and not find at least one former member of the Crimson Tide.

Most of the time, these players make their way into the league by way of the annual NFL draft.

 it’s hard to imagine the franchise not trading it away. However, Chicago needs help on the defensive line and Anderson is the guy to select in this draft to resolve that issue.

No. 2 - Bryce Young The Team: Houston Texans Young is expected to be the first quarterback off the board, which means that if the Bears do end up trading the pick to a team in need of a quarterback

, Young would likely become the first overall selection. The Texans have slowly put together an interesting offensive unit.

No. 19 - Brian Branch The Team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Brian Branch is a versatile defensive back that can excel as a cornerback or safety.

The Buccaneers may need some other areas of concern addressed before the start of the 2023 season, but for now, Branch is the wise pick to sure up the defense.

No. 32 - Jahmyr Gibbs The Team: Philadelphia Eagles The Eagles’ offense is one of the strongest in the NFL. Between the stellar receiving corps and a do-it-all quarterback,

However, one area that could be improved is the run-in game. Jahmyr Gibbs spent only one season at Alabama but hugely impacted the team

 He is not only an amazing ball carrier but also one of the best pass-catching running backs currently playing the game.
