Despite having just three sacks in 23 career games, Jaguars defensive end Andre Branch is earning praise from head coach Gus Bradley.

Branch, a second-round pick out of Clemson in 2012, has been more consistent with his effort and is starting to develop some pass-rush moves. His next task is to have more consistent production, writes the Florida Times-Union's Hays Carlyon.

"The more you play the more the game starts to slow down," said Branch, who had a pair of tackles for loss in last Sunday's loss to Arizona. "It's really starting to slow down for me now. Our coaches simplify everything, so you can be the best you can. With this defense, if you do what you're supposed to do there will be plays to be made."

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content from around the Web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran provides three storylines to watch in Sunday's game against Houston in his Three & Out feature.

The T-U's Vito Stellino writes that the Jaguars are trying to find ways to get receiver Cecil Shorts the ball.

The Jaguars should consider drafting a pass-rusher and not a quarterback with their first-round pick, writes the T-U's Don Coble.

Here's a roundup of items from this blog: linebacker Paul Posluszny talks about his concussion; an examination of the fourth-down touchdown pass to Danny Noble shows that the motion before the snap was the key; the weekly NFL Nation Buzz video.
