5. Deion Branch

Deion Branch was a two-time Patriot who packed a whole lot of talent in a little frame. He made a ton of big plays when it mattered, coming up with 10 catches for 143 yards and a touchdown in Super Bowl 38 and 11 catches for 133 yards in Super Bowl XXXIX, the latter of which earning him game MVP honors. He has always been a clutch receiver for the Patriots when it mattered most, and proved just that in his first game back in 2010. He had nine receptions for 98 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens, most of that production coming in the fourth quarter and overtime. He never had 100 receptions, 1,000 yards or double-digit touchdowns, but he has been steadily productive in every season he’s worn a Patriots uniform. No doubt in my mind that Deion Branch deserves a spot on this list.
