Florida junior DE Dante Fowler "must continue to get stronger at the point of attack and show improved recognition," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Fowler earned second-team all-conference honors by collecting 50 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and three forced fumbles last year. Rang believes Fowler benefited greatly from the attention paid to future first round pick Dominique Easley. "The value Fowler provides lies with his versatility," Rang wrote. "Depending on the situation the Gators line him up at RDE, LDE, DT, and OLB, ask him to rush from the two-point and three-point stance and occasionally drop him into coverage -- including after he has started the play with his hand in the dirt. Fowler's light feet and fluid athleticism belie his powerful, compact frame and make him a tough matchup. ... To take the next step, Fowler must continue to get stronger at the point of attack and show improved recognition, as too often he'd charge into the backfield only to allow the ball-carrier to slip past him."

Florida junior DE Dante Fowler is a "talented defender who plays with maximum effort and energy on every play," writes's Bucky Brooks.

Fowler produced only 3.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss in 2013, but most experts aren't concerned about that; SEC offensive lines were able to roll protection schemes to neutralize him after Dominique Easley went down. "Fowler has the potential to blossom into a disruptive defender at the next level, [but] he needs to put on more performances like his brilliant display against Tennessee (3 tackles, 1 sack, 3 tackles for loss and 2 forced fumbles) to earn high marks in draft rooms across the league," Brooks wrote. "The buzz is already brewing based on his exceptional effort on tape, but he needs to add a little more production to build a strong case to be a top prospect by season's end." Fowler went No. 6 in CBS Sports analyst Rob Rang's 2015 mock draft.

Florida junior DE Dante Fowler went No. 6 in CBS Sports analyst Rob Rang's 2015 mock draft.

"Fowler is a top-notch athlete who could explode in precisely this role for the Gators and ultimately warrant top 10 consideration," Rang wrote. The top five picks were 1.) Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon, 2.) Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford, 3.) Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska, 4.) Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M, and 5.) Leonard Williams, DT, Southern Cal.

Florida sophomore DL Dante Fowler registered three tackles for loss, including a sack, and forced two fumbles against Tennessee.

Fowler is a member of the top defensive line in the country, as senior Dominique Easley and edge rusher Ronald Powell certainly deserve attention as well. The sophomore has plenty of upside and could be moved to the interior after this season. The Gators face Kentucky this weekend.
