If you were one of the approximately two Gators fans wondering where John Brantley would end up in the wake of the 2012 NFL Draft, wonder no more! Via Robbie Andreu:

Brantley will go down as perhaps Florida's most star-crossed quarterback of the modern era. He came to Florida as a five-star recruit with all the promise in the world, and served as Tim Tebow's understudy, beating out eventual Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton for that role. But injuries and a scheme that he didn't fit hamstringing him as a junior in 2010 and injuries and a team bereft of talent sideswiped his 2011, leaving Brantley with only the 2012 Gator Bowl as his signature win.

Brantley should compete with Joe Flacco for the starting j ... I can't do that, even in jest. He'll be trying to beat out Tyrod Taylor and Curtis Painter for backup roles with Baltimore.
