Height: 6-4

Weight: 259

Draft Stock: He could go anywhere from the middle of the first round to the early second.

 

Overview

Andre Branch is a defensive end from Clemson. He racked up 10.5 sacks and this year and turned heads at the combine with his 4.70 40-time.  He's a bit undersized and a bit raw, but he could probably eventually become a good pass rusher.

 

Career Highlight

11 tackles and 4 sacks and a forced fumble against the Virginia Tech Hokies. While he is a bit small, he's explosive enough to chase runners down, which is always a plus. and he has a pretty good speed rush, but he probably needs to bulk up.It looks like he wore down the left tackle as the game progressed and when he coudn't step back quick enough, he ran right by him and disrupted the backfield. However, he needs some time to work with his hands.If he could use them better, he could become a fearsome pass rusher.
