Overview:

Brantley had a nice career at Florida, coming up with 80 tackles, 20.5 for loss, and 5.5 sacks. He has great size, he is a run stuffer, he is athletic for his size, and he commands double teams. He is also a sure fire tackler. He also gets a good push on the offensive line. The downsides are his speed, also that he is not known as a sack specialist, and he is not a great pass rusher. He also recently hit a woman, and knocked out her tooth, so some teams may be wary of him now, but with that said, I expect Brantley to be a day 2 pick, somewhere in the 3rd round are when it is all said and done.
