Position:OLB Class: Sr School:
Wake Forest Conference:
ACC Ht., Wt.: 6'1½, 240 40 Time: 4.71 Grade: 3.22
BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and posted 65/9/4 as a senior after 61/5/1 the prior year. Totaled career highs 95/11/3 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Productive outside linebacker with solid size-speed numbers. Quick to diagnose the action, effectively defends the run yet also solid in pass coverage. Scrapes laterally in pursuit, stacks well against the run yet also gets depth on pass drops.
NEGATIVES: Not efficient and takes extra steps. Lacks explosion and does not flash on the scene. Coming off a mediocre senior campaign.
ANALYSIS: Looking as though he was poised to make a move up draft boards coming into his senior season, Brantley fell short after a poor campaign. Has the athletic skills to play on the weak-side and can add depth to a roster in the NFL.
