Ourlads' Profile:

2012 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ANDRE BRANCH: Clemson, 6042 259 4.69. Two-year starter who had an extremely productive senior year and put two solid years back to back. Good use of hands, long arms, and leverage at the point of attack. Sudden first step. Disruptive in his play. Uses a variety of pass rush moves. An impact player who can run and finish a play. Plays hard. Slaps the pass blockers’ hands down. He lives in the backfield and makes many plays behind the line of scrimmage. Tough to block one on one. Goes through and around blockers. Explosive off the snap. Has an upfield burst once he gets by the blocker. Some NFL teams may like him as a Sam linebacker over the tight end with his long arms. Plays well in space. Can mirror a running back out of the backfield. Quick arm over move to get upfield. Takes good angles to the ball carrier. If he can’t get to the quarterback he puts pressure on him. Led his team in two defensive categories - sacks and tackles for loss, and was second in quarterback pressures (17) and tackles. Climbs the tree to get to the quarterback - works to finish the play. Plays in a rotation where he is generally fresh. Needs more upper and lower body strength to stop the run. Bottom line - a speed rusher with a good motor. 2011 stats: 85 tackles, 17 TFL, 10.5 sacks. Edge speed:left 2.03, right 2.08. OSR:4/25. First/second round. (A-34, H-9, BP-19, 10-1.60).
