Scouting Report on John Brantley

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Brantley is a very smooth signal-caller with excellent feet and top-of-the-line accuracy. He has adequate zip on the football and throws one of the best deep balls of anyone in the 2007 class. He’s patient in the pocket and has the feet to get outside the rush and throw on the run. He needs to fill out quite a bit physically and his level of competition is in question, but his mechanics are solid and he is accurate on all the necessary throws. Brantley has good instincts and knows exactly when to release the ball on timing patterns. He leads his receivers very well and puts the ball in position for them to do the most damage after the catch. He’s physically tough and can take a hit, allowing him to play some option in college as well as tuck and run when needed. A leader in the pocket, Brantley is very confident and doesn’t panic. Brantley can push the ball at times when trying to get into tight spots and his arm strength isn’t his strength, but he shows great follow-through on passes which leads to his accurate touch and he gets the ball out quick.
