Alabama football prospects for 2022 NFL Draft

Josh Jobe, CB

Jobe could have declared for the draft this year, and he probably would have gone on Day 2. Instead, he decided to return for his senior year. His stock can rise if he improves on his awareness and ball skills. He’s an aggressive corner, so he can thrive in the right scheme at the next level.

Phil Mathis, IDL

Mathis is just a solid player. He likely won’t go in the first round, but he can make an NFL roster better with his presence. He needs to work on sack production, and that will be hard to do with the depth on the defensive line. Still, he is a quality player with some great upside if he proves himself this season.

Jordan Battle, S

Battle was one of the best players in Alabama’s secondary last year. He flashed traits in 2019, but he put it all together in 2020. If he gets production in the box and in coverage this year, he can be one of the best safeties in the NFL. Safeties aren’t valued as high as other positions in the NFL, but Battle will be one of the best.

LaBryan Ray, IDL

This will be an interesting prospect. LaBryan Ray is considered a great talent on Alabama football’s roster, but he hasn’t played well up to this point. If he had, he would already be in the NFL. Between injuries and a lack of production, Ray has to prove himself in 2021.

Next. Winners and losers of the NFL Draft. dark

Alabama football has sent more players to the draft than any other team in recent years. They appear to be prepped to send more talent to the league next season.
