Report: NFL Teams Told To Stay Away From Caleb Brantley

The former Florida Gators' star was given a first-round grade, but slipped into the sixth round.

Caleb Brantley, a standout defensive tackle out of Florida, is a first-round talent.

The 6-foot-3, 307-pound defensive lineman didn't get selected until pick No. 185 of the 2017 NFL Draft, though, taken by the Cleveland Browns.

This is because Brantley's past has some serious question marks.

The former Gators' star is facing a misdemeanor battery charge after allegedly striking a woman on April 13.

According to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot, one coach told NFL teams to "stay away" from him, even if he went undrafted.

The Browns appear to be aware of the risks that come with taking him and are even admitting they might not keep him on the roster, depending on what happens.

Brantley was an All-SEC performer at Florida.

The outcome of his assault case is still pending.
