    Weight: 259
    Grade: 6.8P (Grading Scale)

    Strengths: A tall, long and athletic looking edge rusher – Branch has played both standing up and with hand in the dirt – Uses speed much more than power to win – Uses his arms to create leverage on OL and gets good extension, punches through the chest – Looked natural and comfortable at the combine standing up during OLB drills – Disciplined edge player, doesn’t get washed down on play action and keeps contain in the run game – Stays square to the line – Decent lateral mobility – Creates separation from OL with the use of his hands – Was used on a variety of zone blitzes and showed the ability to cover RBs and TEs out of the backfield – Keeps his eyes in the backfield and doesn’t lose sight of the ball – Has a couple of above average pass rush moves including a “stutter-step then dip move” and a “hand slap” – Plays really well in space, breaks down on tackles and never out of control – Is great in pursuit, makes a lot of plays because of his motor – Powerful finisher, engulfs the ball carrier and powers through them – Probably best suited for 3-4 rush end.
