Caleb Brantley

Strengths:

  • Strong
  • High motor
  • Quick off the snap
  • Works off block towards play

Analysis: Caleb Brantley isn’t shy about his game. Last season he was quoted saying that he is  “the best defensive tackle in the country” and that he didn’t “think it was close.” You have to love his confidence. He has a compact frame with lean muscle mass and thickness in his arms and legs. Has tremendous play strength and can dislodge guards with hip torque. Plays hungry and with passion. Able to plant his flag and stand his ground against double teams. When he gets the snap timed up, it’s over. Has the initial quickness and play strength to get into the gap and plow through any and all redirect block attempts. Wants blocker to feel the power in his initial punch. Works off blocks and towards the play. Efficient mover with no wasted motion. Considers one-on-one blocks a sign of disrespect.

Weaknesses:

  • Not a dynamic pass rusher
  • Needs more finesse in game
  • Snap guesser (10 offsides in two years)
  • Undersized for three technique

Analysis: Caleb Brantley is a straight-liner and slightly undersized. May need to add more mass on his frame. Doesn’t possess the lateral agility or quickness to excel as a rusher in twists up front. Not a dynamic pass rusher. Needs to add a counter move for when his power rush stalls out. Has to prove he can handle extended snap count. Part of deep defensive line rotation and was usually kept fresh. Misses out on sacks and tackles for losses due to lack of length to consistently finish when he gets near the play. Guesses snap count. Drawn offsides 10 times over the last two seasons.

NFL Comparison: Fletcher Cox

Draft Projection: Late 1st, early 2nd round
