Branch should be able to at least work his way into the four-man rotation because he's more athletic than his veteran competition.

The Jaguars are desperate to fix a pass rush that has been in the bottom quarter of the league for the last four years. Branch may not start right away, but the Jaguars are counting on him to eventually be an impact player at a position that needs a significant upgrade.

"From what I watched, he had a great motor and was relentless. He could hurt tacklers with speed and had the ability to drop his shoulder and get to the quarterback. A guy like Jason Pierre-Paul is more powerful, but (Branch) has a chance to get stronger and grow. He's a guy that's not going to back down from anybody." —defensive line coach Joe Cullen
