2011: 77 tackles, 16 TFL, 9.5 sacks

I really like Branch. He's got protypical size and great athleticism. And he uses his length and burst to his advantage. He's a guy that would undoubtedly be a much better player standing up rather than with his hand in the ground. Actually, he looked freaky good on the sack in the clip where he rushed from the standing position (expertly using his burst and length for leverage). My only gripe, and a very correctable one at that, is that I wish he was more active with his hands. He does show that he understands the concept, but I'd like to see him use his hands more violently and show a little more tenacity. I love the way he bends around the corner, and I really dig his field speed and the way he gives chase.

All in all Branch seems like a really talented player that could do some things if he gets drafted into the right situation. I think that the Jets defense is definitely an enviroment in which he could thrive. Wouldn't at all be disappointed if he landed on our tarmac on draft day.
