This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.
John Brantley, Florida
Height: 6'3, Weight: 219 pounds
Strengths: Brantley has upside because he has decent size and a smooth, fast throwing motion. Should get better after running an NFL scout team getting consistent reps.
Weaknesses: Got yo-yoed in and out of the lineup and would have been better served transferring. Puts the ball in bad spots and will make poor decisions on throws. Has a tendency to throw off his back foot and gets off balance.
