With the 38th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Clemson Tigers defensive end Andre Branch. Branch is the No. 24-rated prospect in the draft and is the No. 4 defensive end in SB Nation's rankings at Mocking The Draft.

According to Mocking The Draft's scouting report on Branch, he is much more of a speed rusher than a power rusher, although his lack of a very quick first step off the line of scrimmage is what could hold him back from becoming an elite NFL pass rusher.
