Brian Branch was one of ten Alabama players that got selected in the NFL Draft.
As a native Georgian, he got picked in the second round by the Detroit Lions. Branch had an excellent junior season where he totaled 90 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, three sacks, seven pass breakups, two quarterback hurries, and two interceptions.
During the draft, Branch was almost moved to tears by an emotional support message from his brother.

His brother encouraged him to continue being the person he is and how the family is behind him.
It is going to be fun watching Branch make a difference for the Lions.
