“Brantley has the combination of quickness and functional strength to excel as an interior player at the next level.” –Todd McShay
Elite, one gap disrupter. Powerful base and strong hands, and extremely disruptive. Possesses quick initial burst that allows him to penetrate as well. Very active hands, and strong footwork. More of a run defender at this point, but could develop to an all around defensive tackle. Plays with fire, but can get tired, could work best to start as rotational tackle.
