Teez Tabor declares for NFL Draft

The most expected of the early entrants into the NFL Draft gave public notice early Thursday morning when Teez Tabor announced he was forgoing his final year of eligibility at Florida and moving on.

In his last season, Teez Tabor finished with 33 tackles and team tying four interceptions. Tabor finished his career with nine interceptions including three he returned for touchdowns. 

Tabor was a lock-down corner that started in 26 games in his three years on campus. Physical and athletic Tabor was as dependable as the Gators have had in taking away one side of the football field. 

He earned various freshman All-American honors in 2014 and the some All-American honors in 2015. Through three different defensive back coaches and two coordinators, Tabor remained a play maker and dependable. 

Often brash and never one to keep quiet, Tabor was always a fan favorite and showed his love back to the fans on many occasions. 

Pairing with Quincy Wilson, another Florida Junior that declared for the draft, the combo was likely the best pair of cornerbacks in the nation in 2016. 

This one will be hard to replace.
