The Way We See It

A fourth-year junior and two-year starter for Florida. Redshirted his true freshman year. Brantley is short but very quick, strong, powerful and explosive. Gets off the ball as quick as anyone. Has good arm length and uses his quickness and hand use to get penetration and be disruptive in the run game. He is a good inside pass rusher who again uses his quickness and moves to his advantage. Gets more pressure than sacks but is very effective. Needs to become a better pursuit player, will quit on some plays that he feels he can't get to. Size limits him to being a 3-technique in a 4-3 scheme but some 3-4 clubs might like him as a designated interior pass rusher.
