With quarterback play falling off in recent years, the lack of this kind of receiver has hurt the offense even more. Jeff Driskel now looks confident and poised for a strong year, making it easier for the receivers to get involved. Robinson has been going head-to-head with Marcus Roberson and winning his share of the battles. This seemed clear in the spring and continues to be more obvious -- he will play and be an instant difference maker starter August 31. -- Cody Jones
Will Muschamp chastised him quite loudly one time for not being in the right position at the snap of the ball, but the kid is usually spot on and seems everywhere when the ball; is in the air.
Maye is a pure athlete on the field and has nice size to play at safety. He also happens to be a very intelligent player which s helping him even without any experience in games before this season. He's tough, aggressive, and he likes to thump the receivers when they go across the middle. -- Bob Redman
Solomon Patton was running his route toward the sideline and jumped for a pass when Neal quickly put him on the ground. The Gators have spent most of their open practices keeping defensive players from tackling, but every once in a while, a player just gets the urge to change that. And Neal did in a big way.
He also had a big hit that put freshman running back Adam Lane on his back on Thursday. Both times, the coaches have immediately taken Neal to the side and talked to him about backing off from hitting a player in practice like that. However, it's a plus for Florida that he's this active. The coaches would rather it be this way then have to encourage aggression. -- Cody Jones
Ronald Powell, I believe Jarrad Davis is the most physically imposing linebacker the Gators have and he plays that way. He brings the hammer with him when he hits a ball carrier. He is another smart player that is catching on quickly.
On Monday, Davis had a couple of nice hits and he also forced a fumble from freshman running back Kelvin Taylor in a 1-on-1 drill. That isn't easy to do.
I watched during the position drills and he is very quick and athletic for his size. He runs with the best of the linebackers that are almost all smaller than he. -- Bob Redman
That's where he could become a target this year. The Gators have Quinton Dunbar and Demarcus Robinson to catch the ball down the field, but Fulwood could create his role as a red zone target. -- Cody Jones
