2012: Andre Branch-DE
Branch has made an impact as a backup since his selection by the Jaguars. He played in only three games in his rookie season, posting a sack and 11 tackles. His best year was the next one, 2013, when he posted six sacks, 37 tackles, and three passes defended. He has made his presence felt on the pass rush each year, with three and four sacks over the next two seasons.
