The University of Alabama has three alums competing as Will Reichard, Justin Eboigbe, and Chris Braswell increased their draft value throughout the week of practice. Reichard, a placekicker, finished his collegiate career as the NCAA’s all-time leader for points (539) — winning SEC Special Teams Player of the Year in 2023. Eboigbe and Braswell produced breakout seasons on defense, helping the group capture a Southeastern Conference Championship. All three project as day two picks for the NFL Draft, but it will be interesting to see where they land. Reichard earned Special Teams Player of the Week at practice.

The Crimson Tide and its fans are rooting for all three to excel on the Senior Bowl stage.
