Throws with an over-the-top delivery and every once in a while delivers strikes to targets.

Analysis: Brantley is a streaky quarterback who flashes ability on occasion only to come back and make questionable decisions. He possesses enough physical skill to make an NFL roster, but may not have the field awareness or pocket presence to ever make it off a practice squad.
