Last weekend was a big one for eight Florida football players who were drafted into the NFL along with another four who signed free agent deals to NFL teams. It also was a big deal for six football players who walked across the stage and got their degrees from the University of Florida.

A total of eight Florida Gators were taken in the 2017 NFL Draft with three more taken on Saturday. Offensive tackle David Sharpe, defensive tackle Caleb Brantley, and defensive tackle Joey Ivie all heard their names called on Saturday and four other Gators were signed to free agent contracts by the conclusion of the evening.

Kudos to freshmen linebackers David Reese and Kylan Johnson who have played admirably and well with the absence of Jarrad Davis and Alex Anzalone from the starting lineup. But, a return of Davis to play against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday would be about as huge as a lift this Gator team could get at this point.

The game was a war last week in Baton Rouge. The Florida offense was having issues in the passing game, but some success on the ground. That is when a few players on the Florida squad made sure that head coach Jim McElwain understood what they saw and their intentions. It was eye opening moment and maybe one that pushed the Gators to a win.
