From AtlantaFalcons.com:

Branch’s top-six performances among defensive linemen in the 40, the broad jump and the 20-yard shuttle at the recent NFL Combine were particularly impressive and have helped vault the pass rusher into first-round consideration in this year’s draft. Vanderkam sees Branch as a versatile pass rusher and is strong enough against the run to stay on the field as an every-down lineman. It will be a long wait for the Falcons into the second round at No. 55, but if he’s available, he thinks the Falcons would be getting a steal in Branch.

“Branch has probably worked his way into late first round consideration this offseason and would be a steal if he’s still available at No. 55,” Vanderkam said. “Today’s NFL is all about quarterbacks and pass rushers. His ability to play with his hand in the dirt or standing up at linebacker will make him attractive to every team, and a lot of teams would have to pass on Branch for him to still be available with Atlanta’s first selection.”
