Andre Branch Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'5 - 260 lbs.|
2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Andre Branch, DE, Clemson
Branch has great size at 6'5'' and 260 pounds, although he does have room to add some bulk to that frame. He runs in the 4.7 range of the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.65 from that distance. He has the agility to be a rush linebacker in a 3-4 defense at the next level and the size to be an end in a 4-3 scheme. He can get his hands up and knock down balls at the line or drop back and break up passes. Branch had the physical tools to go pro after last year, but a made a smart decision to return to the Tigers. He should continue to improve his pass-rushing moves, aggressiveness, and first step off the ball. As it stands, Branch should be no worse than a third-round pick in the 2012 draft.
