Browns select Florida DT Caleb Brantley with 185th pick in 2017 NFL Draft

The Browns on Saturday selected Florida defensive tackle Caleb Brantley in the sixth round with the No. 185 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Brantley (6-3, 307) is the eighth Brown selected in the 2017 NFL Draft, joining first-rounders DE Myles Garrett, S Jabrill Peppers and TE David Njoku, second-rounder QB DeShone Kizer, third-round pick DT Larry Ogunjobi,  fourth-round DB Howard Wilson and fifth-round OL Roderick Johnson.

A three-year player with the Gators, Brantley earned second-team All-SEC honors as a junior, posting 8.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. He started 10 games as a sophomore and finished with 6.5 tackles for loss and three sacks.

Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said the team is aware of an off-field incident involving Brantley, considers it concerning and has made Brantley aware nothing is guaranteed moving forward as the team investigates it.

"This is something he can't repeat as he moves forward," Brown said. "More importantly than that, we communicated to Caleb that this is still something that we are investigating and looking into. Facts may turn up that prevent us for being able to keep him on our roster."
