NFL Draft rewind: Florida has put 26 players in the NFL over last five years

NFL: Super Bowl XLVIII-Denver Broncos vs Seattle Seahawks

Florida is one of those programs that will always put players in the NFL, especially with such a fertile recruiting base and prolific program. The Gators have several players who will be drafted in 2014, and headlining them all is Dominique Easley, who tore his ACL this past season.
