In 2009 picking a starting defense for the Florida Gators was easy. All 11 starters returned from 2008 and except for an injury or two all 11 started again in 2009. While the defense returns several starters, one noticeable missing person is Joe Haden, who started at cornerback for three years. Haden is gone to the NFL and so are the two top backups. Cornerback will be scrutinized this spring.
