The Gainesville Sun reports that Florida senior T D.J. Humphries will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Humphries hasn't publicly confirmed this report, though at least one teammate has tweeted confirmation, and we know the big tackle had sought feedback from the NFL’s draft advisory board. Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, is a tool-shed of a prospect who has struggled to remain healthy during his career. The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder played in only 17 of 24 games the past two seasons.

Florida senior T D.J. Humphries and the Florida offensive line as a whole "deserve a great deal of credit" for Saturday's win against Georgia, wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"The Gators frequently ran behind their 6-foot-5, 290-pound junior left tackle," Rang noted, racking up 418 rushing yards in the 38-20 upset victory. Despite the praise, the article noted that Georgia edge rushing stud Leonard Floyd beat him a few times, mostly on plays featuring supreme athleticism. Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, is a tool-shed of a prospect who has struggled to remain healthy during his career. His draft stock remains heavily dependent on his ability to stay on the field, as well as how he performs down the stretch.

Florida senior T D.J. Humphries will return to the field against Tennessee.

Humphries has missed time due to a high ankle sprain and a chipped bone in his knee. The former big time recruit was shut down after six games last year after spraining both MCLs.

Florida HC Will Muschamp announced senior T D.J. Humphries has a high ankle sprain and a chipped bone in his knee.

Despite the injuries, Humphries is expected to return on October 4 against Tennessee. That would mean missing the next two weeks against Kentucky and Alabama (Florida has a bye on Saturday, September 27). The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, was shut down after six games last year due to MCL sprains in both knees. He has all sorts of physical tools, but scouts want to see him learn to stay healthy.
Sep 8 - 7:23 PM

Florida senior T D.J. Humphries will miss 2-3 weeks after suffering an apparent ankle injury against Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

Uh oh. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, was shut down after six games last year due to MCL sprains in both knees. He's extremely athletic, quick, and has good balance, but has struggled in his limited time on the field (only 10 career starts), mostly due to wavering fundamentals. Former top recruit David Sharpe should tend to Jeff Driskel's blind side as long as Humphries is on the shelf.
Sep 6 - 7:45 PM

Florida senior T D.J. Humphries "should develop into an all-conference tackle and quite possibly a high NFL draft pick," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Though he has only played in 19 collegiate games (and started just nine of those), Humphries is already generating buzz in the scouting community as a blindside tackle with exciting upside," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, was shut down after six games last year due to MCL sprains in both knees. "Highly athletic, Humphries is quick off the snap and shows impressive balance and lateral agility in pass protection," Rang wrote. "He plays with his knees bent and on the balls of his feet, easily shuffling to mirror rushers as well as anchoring well against the bull rush. Humphries boasts long arms and good overall upper body strength to knock defenders off the ball and is quick to the second level. He can get a little lazy with his fundamentals on occasion, getting a bit off-balance when too aggressive with his initial punch and leaving himself vulnerable to counters."

Florida junior T D.J. Humphries (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Georgia Southern.

Humphries is suffering from an MCL sprain. The team's starting left tackle did not perform well when healthy, which renders his quality of play comparable to his Gator offensive line teammates. Florida shouldn't have trouble dispatching Georgia Southern -- we hope -- which allows the staff to play it cautious with Humphries.

Florida junior T D.J. Humphries will miss the next 2-4 weeks with an MCL sprain.

Humphries, the team's starting left tackle, had not performed very well when healthy. In fact the entire Gator offensive line has taken a step back this season. Redshirt junior Max Garcia could fill in for Humphries.

Florida junior T D.J Humphries will miss the remainder of the game against Miami with a knee injury.

Humphries sprained his MCL last week and likely reinjured the knee in this contest. He is the team's starting left tackle, so his departure could be big for the Gators. The school has next week off and then will face Tennessee.

Florida sophomore T D.J. Humphries has a sprained MCL but will play against Miami.

Humphries is the starting left tackle. The sophomore took playing time away from senior Xavier Nixon last season and is settled into the first unit now. The Gators have a great matchup against Miami on Saturday, but the Hurricanes don't boast the edge rushers the Gators do.

Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease hinted that freshman T D.J. Humphries will see plenty of snaps during this Saturday's game against LSU.

Humphries was the nation's top high school offensive tackle recruit and will likely push inconsistent senior left tackle Xavier Nixon for playing time. LSU obviously deploys plenty of edge rushing talent, and Nixon's inability to keep on weight or consistently anchor may lead to a switch on the blind side.

Florida freshman T D.J. Humphries enrolled early this spring along with five other top Gator recruits.

Humphries, the consensus top tackle recruit nationally, will certainly go through a body transformation after showing up to campus at 6'5/280 pounds. With the Gator's lack of depth at tackle, Humphries may be able to crack the backup rotation. However, underperforming senior tackle Xavier Nixon also saw starting time his freshman season after arriving to campus just as lean as Humphries but has struggled to retain the necessary weight since. The Gainesville Sun believes there is a "100 percent" chance Humphries sees the field this year.
