and Da’Quan Bowers. Branch had an OK year last year as a junior when he had 55 tackles, five sacks, 2.5 tackles for loss, an astounding seven passes broken up, and 16 hurries on the quarterback. He has all the talent needed to make an impact in the NFL, but will he have the elite production to back it up? Branch’s 6’5″ 265 pound frame is absolutely ideal for the position going forward in a 4-3 scheme. He’s pretty quick for his size, and he definitely knows how to close in on a play. Obviously there are only so many sacks to go around, and Bowers used up a lot of them, but I expect Branch’s number to increase in 2011 as he emerges into a leadership role on the Clemson defense.
