Ht: 5-10 Wt: 233 40: 4.76 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Two-year starter awarded All-American and
all-conference honors as a senior after posting
295/1,190/16 carrying the ball. Recipient of the
Walter Payton Award as the top offensive player
in I-AA in ‘03 after totaling 450/2,326/29 in sixteen
Positives: Big, powerful interior back
who effectively handles the ball late in the game.
Runs hard, falls forward and breaks tackles,
picking up yardage off initial contact. Patient,
waits for blocks to develop and works runs.
Quickly picks up blocking assignments. Also
has the ability to weave through the traffic or cut
back in a very small area handling the ball.
Lacks quickness through the hole or the speed
around the corner. Runs with an upright style
and does not always display great balance or
body control. Marginal skills as a pass catcher.
Analysis: A heavy-duty feature runner who's
been very productive on a small school level the
past two seasons, Branch has some abilities as
a short yardage back in the NFL.
