Projected 2014 starters: Florida Gators
SDS starts a series of predicting the game one starters for all 14 SEC teams. Next up, the Florida Gators.
The Florida Gators open the season at home against Idaho, and here is our projected starting lineup:
|QB||Jeff Driskel||DE||Jonathan Bullard|
|RB||Kelvin Taylor||DT||Leon Orr|
|WR||Quinton Dunbar||DT||Darious Cummings|
|WR||Ahmad Fullwood||Buck||Dante Fowler|
|WR||Latroy PIttman||OLB||Jarrad Davis|
|TE||Jake McGee||MLB||Antonio Morrison|
|LT||DJ Humphries||OLB||Neiron Ball|
|LG||Tyler Moore||CB||Vernon Hargreaves|
|C||Max Garcia||CB||Jalen Tabor|
|RG||Trenton Brown||SS||Jabari Gorman|
|RT||Chaz Green||FS||Marcus Maye|
- There aren’t too many surprises on the Gators’ offense. However, shakeups will happen along the offensive line, and finding the right five will be an interesting feat for Will Muschamp.
- The Gators’ starting defense may be set. A big position still up for grabs is the No. 2 corner job opposite of Vernon Hargreaves, which could be won by Brian Poole, Jalen Tabor or Duke Dawson. I have Tabor projected as the starter, and he’s the prototypical cornerback in Muschamp’s defense.
- Jonathan Bullard and Dante Fowler have a chance to be a dynamic combo along the defensive line, and Bullard has played both end and tackle throughout his career.
- Linebacker Jarrad Davis could be a big-time contributor on defense and could be an All-SEC linebacker.
