Caleb Brantley’s draft position took a huge hit yesterday, as the projected second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft has been charged with misdemeanor assault for hitting a woman in the face and knocking her unconscious. Now the Florida defensive tackle will be lucky to even be selected.

Brantley reportedly made “crude” comments towards the feamle victim and she pushed him. He responded by hitting her, and knocking her unconscious. She also “sustained dental injuries that displaced a tooth and will require a root canal.”
If your not familiar with Mr. Brantley, he is 6’3″ and 300 pounds and the woman he struck was 5’6″ and 120 pounds.
The police report also says “the intensity of (Brantley’s) force far exceeded what was reasonable or necessary.”
The incident occurred on April 13.
Brantley was a three-year player at Florida and was a big contributor for the Gators defense. He is a fantastic athlete and was projected to be an immediate starter in the NFL. Now, because he couldn’t stop himself from punching a woman, his future is in doubt.
