Video: FB and TE Spring Highlights

The tight end spot was a big question mark coming into spring practice and it didn't take long to figure out the Gators had some talent at the position. Jordan Reed and Gerald Christian both made some noise this spring with Reed getting the nod. At fullback, the battle looked pretty even but Steven Wilks appears to have assumed the reigns right now over T.J. Pridemore.

With a big hole to fill in the departure of Aaron Hernandez, Florida needs to find some answers at tight end. Jordan reed certainly made his voice heard this spring and looked very good as a pass catcher at the position. His size and athleticism somewhat rivals Hernandez. Gerald Christian came in this spring fresh from high school and showed glimpses while he learned the offensive ropes. Desmond Parks got a couple of highlights in before getting injured.

The fullback will be employed more this year than in years' past and Steven Wilks and T.J. Pridemore should be able to perform at a high level blocking for the quarterback and running backs, while also catching the ball in the offense when necessary.

Here is what we saw from the tight ends and fullbacks this spring.
