View Full Profile is showing impressive athleticism at the NFL combine.
Clemson defensive end Andre Branch is considered one of the better hybrid linebacker prospects as well, and he showed why that is on Monday at the Scouting Combine by running a 4.62 and 4.68 unofficially in the 40 yard dash. He also had a 1.62 second 10 yard split, which trailed only Bruce Irvin’s 1.53.
Branch measured out at 6’4? 259 pounds and has 34 inch arms, so he is an impressive figure whose production could also warrant a first round discussion. He might be a great fit for teams like the Patriots, Ravens, Jets, or really any base 3-4 team.
