There is no doubting that Florida defensive tackle Caleb Brantley believes he is one of the best players in the country, let alone the SEC. So when the media’s preseason All-SEC teams did not include his name, you would think he would be upset.
However, it is quite the opposite as Brantley seems to be pretty motivated by the snub for the list. He reacted to a tweet that listed all the Gators to make the list this year and it looks like he will make sure to prove them wrong this year.
Twelve defensive linemen were picked to make the first, second and third teams above Caleb Brantley this year, which has got to be a pretty big blow for him. However, he is ready to take the field and prove he belongs on those lists this year.
In 2015, Brantley recorded 28 tackles, seven for loss and three sacks.
