Dan Campbell Praises Brian Branch at Detroit Lions Training Camp

Although Branch is naturally instinctive and well-versed in football, understanding the broader game dynamics will take time. But Campbell assures, this young star is on the right path and is quickly making his ascent.

“More than anything, it’s just communicating with his teammates and understanding how they work, and where they’re at, where he needs to fit,” Campbell told reporters on Wednesday. “He’s got the instinctive side of it, he has that. He’s got the football side of it. Some of it is just, ‘Okay, the next progression here is…’ Understand where Kerby’s gonna be, where Alex is at, and how that fits you. Now, don’t take away your instincts, the way you play ball, but just understand a little bit on now, the bigger picture, which comes in time. That’s growing, he’s a rookie. But he is taking off right now.”
