Florida Gators: Will John Brantley Become The First Gator QB to Be Successful In The NFL?

Few can argue that the Florida Gators have been one of the most successful college football programs over the past 20 years.

During that period, Florida has won eight SEC and three National Championships. No other SEC team can come close to those accomplishments.

However, one thing the Gators have struggled with over it's history is providing a successful QB for the NFL. Many have tried, but none have succeeded.

Perhaps John Brantley is that QB. He possesses an NFL arm, and now that Tim Tebow has graduated, he has the opportunity to show everyone how good he really is.

Brantley will be the starter for the 2010 season, and if provided the tools to succeed, he should be a pleasant surprise for the Gator Nation, and those who feel the Gators will struggle in the post-Tebow era.

Tebow will have his shot, but many feel he is a long-shot at making it as a QB in the NFL. John Brantley is more of a prototypical NFL QB than Tebow, hence one of the reasons for this slideshow.

Until that happens, let's take a look at five QBs that have left Florida and attempted a career in the NFL, and see what they are doing today.
