Branden Dozier (born November 28, 1993) is an American defensive and special teams player with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL), who played college football with the UNC-Charlotte 49ers. Signed by the Alouettes for the 2017 CFL season, Dozier recorded 60 defensive tackles, including two sacks, as well as 14 special teams tackles. He also scored a touchdown on a 20-yard fumble return. He was the team's nominee for the league's Most Outstanding Rookie award.
Dozier played running back and defensive back at Washburn Rural High School, where he earned All-City honors before graduating in 2012. He then played at Butler County Community College, where he garnered all-Kansas Jayhawk honors as defensive back. While at UNC Charlotte, he set a single-season tackle record. He attended at Pittsburgh Steelers rookie mini-camp in 2016 but was not offered a contract. After sitting out a year to complete his studies, he reached out to a member of the Alouettes front office, did a private workout and was promptly signed to his first pro contract.
