Report: Browns will host visit with Florida DL Caleb Brantley

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

According to Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times, Florida DL Caleb Brantley has a visit with the Cleveland Browns lined up soon:

Brantley (6-4, 307 lbs) is rated as the third best defensive tackle in this year’s draft by CBS Sports and is projected to be a second round pick. Only Jonathan Allen and Malik McDowell are ahead of him at the position. Rob Rang of CBS Sports compares Brantley to Jonathan Babineaux of the Falcons, saying:

Like the 6-2, 300-pound Babineaux, Brantley possesses the initial burst to impact the line of scrimmage but he lacks ideal closing speed to get home. Brantley's toughness and consistency, however, should make him a favorite of his NFL coaching staff, as Babineaux has been in Atlanta over the past 12 seasons.
