Draft Scout *Caleb Brantley News
08/01/17 - DL Caleb Brantley suffered a broken finger that will require surgery and keep him out a week or two, coach Hue Jackson said.
05/17/17 - DT Caleb Brantley saw his battery charges dismissed Wednesday due to insufficient evidence, State Attorney officials in Florida announced. Brantley was charged on suspicion of misdemeanor battery following an alleged altercation with a woman in a Gainesville bar, near the University of Florida campus. Brantley was regarded as a second- or third-round pick in the draft last month, but his stock fell dramatically because he allegedly hit a 120-pound woman in the face and knocked her unconscious at a Florida bar two weeks before the draft.
01/06/17 - Gators DT Caleb Brantley to enter NFL Draft...Caleb Brantley is ready to test his dynamic ability at the next level. The Crescent City, Fla. native has positioned himself as one of the top defensive tackles in the 2017 NFL Draft after an impressive redshirt junior season. Brantley announced his plans on Friday in an exclusive letter on SECCountry.com. "I'll look back on my time at UF with no regrets. Only lifelong lessons, memories and relationships," Brantley said. "I'll be the first person in my family to earn a 4-year degree when I graduate. I've become a role model for my brother. He sees me reaping the benefits of my labor, so now he wants to go to college. It's a must in his mind. I don't want my daughter, Caleigh, to grow up the way I did. My motivation is to take care of my family." For more on Brantley's decision, check out his exclusive letter on SECCountry.com. Overall in 2016, Brantley tallied 31 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, three quarterback hurries and a forced fumble. However, those statistics don't account for all of the other times he directly or indirectly impacted a play with his pressure up the middle. - Florida Football

11/19/16 - Goal line stand gives No. 23 Florida SEC East crown...No. 23 Florida stopped LSU running back Derrius Guice on a fourth-and-1 dive at the goal-line to preserve a wild 16-10 victory Saturday at Tiger Stadium and clinch the SEC East title. Trailing by six, LSU (6-4) got the ball back at its 25 with 3:24 left. After receivers dropped two passes, quarterback Danny Etling found receiver D.J. Chark open on a crossing pattern for a 30-yard gain to convert a critical fourth-and-10. That gave LSU new life at the Florida 18. Etling completed a 6-yard pass to Malachai Dupre to the Gator 7, and three consecutive runs got LSU to the Florida 1. LSU called its final timeout with 3 seconds left. On fourth-and-gaol, Guice took the handoff and tried to leap over the middle of the Florida line, but he was hit in mid-air by defensive back Marcell Harris, who knocked the ball loose. Although tight end Foster Moreau recovered the ball, he was short of the end zone, ending the game. - The Sports Xchange
