Table inside Article
Having a knack for getting to the ball, Braswell forced three fumbles in 2023 and was a timely disruptor off the edge, despite limited production in his three seasons playing for the Crimson Tide. He also showed elite special teams value with a blocked punt and field goal. Braswell’s limited experience (1,013 snaps on defense) makes him a raw developmental project, but what he did show in his one season as a full-time starter in 2023 was a variety of pass-rush moves that can give an NFL defensive coordinator a good foundation to work with.

OVERVIEW: A five-star prospect out of the national-power St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, Braswell was one of many prized recruits for Alabama in the 2020 class. And while it took him a couple of seasons to see the field consistently, he finally lived up to his billing with a productive 2023 that saw him account for 10.5 tackles for loss and 8 sacks on his way to being an AP second-team All-SEC selection as a senior.
