NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang believes that senior T Martez Ivey is "growing" as a tackle prospect.
Ivey was a huge get for the Gators out of high school as a consensus five-star prospect, but his time at Florida has been inconsistent; and inconsistent might be too nice. Rang saw growth from the senior tackle on Saturday, even in a loss to Georgia. "The strength and aggression needed for playing in the close quarters inside was certainly on display Saturday against the Bulldogs. The vast majority of the 170 rushing yards (on 37 carries) Florida gained came via the wide lanes Ivey created off the left side." Ivey will have lots of questions from NFL teams because of his hit-and-miss results, but the talent is there, and the progress he's made in 2018 is certainly going to help. Oct 29 - 8:03 PM

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren lists Florida senior T Martez Ivey as one of the players who is running out of time to live up to his recruiting hype.

Ivey was one of the highest rated tackles of his class, but while he hasn't been a "bust" per se, he hasn't quite lived up to that status in his three years with the Gators. As VanHaaren notes, Dan Mullen's staff is known for its "offensive acumen," and a better season on that side of the ball will certainly help Ivey's stock. "The size and potential is there, it’s just putting it all together for Ivey," VanHaaren writes. "The new staff provides hope for this season."

Florida junior T Martez Ivey confirmed he was one of five Gators underclassmen designated for additional scouting by the NFL.

Ivey said the scouts took measurements only this spring, and that he didn't work out for them. A new rule was passed last year that allowed scouts additional access to specific underclassmen.

Florida head coach Jim McElwain indicated that junior T Martez Ivey will move to left tackle this spring.

Ivey was the starting left guard last season. He's kicking to left tackle to replace David Sharpe, who's off to the pros. Ivey is a former top-five overall recruit.

Florida true freshman T Martez Ivey was named to the 2015 Freshman All-SEC team on Thursday.

The 6-foot-5, 271-pound true freshman began the season at a tackle, but due to depth concerns, he made the switch to left guard, starting the last seven games of the season. The Florida prospect showed versatility as a freshman, filling in at both left and right tackle and at guard.

According to Florida head coach Jim McElwain, true freshman T Martez Ivey is back to practicing and is "good to go."

"He's good to go. He practiced all week," McElwain said during the weekly SEC media teleconference. "We haven't set the rotation there yet, but he'll play. We'll see how it feels in the morning obviously. This is really only two hard practices on it. He looks like he's ready to me, but that's obviously our trainers' and doctors' calls as well." The true freshman was in line to compete for a starting spot before undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last month.

Florida true freshman T Martez Ivey will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday.

Ivey was a likely starter on the offensive line, but the Gators will have to change course quickly. Head coach Jim McElwain declined to discuss specifics, but said that the 6-foot-5, 271-pound true freshman's injury was "a pre-existing thing that was kind of bothering him." A silver lining--McElwain indicated that we could see Ivey again this season. He just doesn't know when. Coming out of high school, the tackle was ranked as the No. 4 overall recruit in the country by Rivals.

Florida head coach Jim McElwain told reporters up to four freshmen could play along the OL this season.

Four might not start, but four could be in the two deep rotation. The most likely freshman to start is T Martez Ivey, who could play on the right or left side, replacing the departed D.J. Humphries. McElwain is an excellent offensive coach, but the talent of his players might be a step below his opponents.

Florida true freshman T Martez Ivey could replace D.J. Humphries in the starting lineup in 2015, but if he doesn't, he'll start elsewhere, believes NFL Media.

"The team is essentially starting from scratch up front with so many losses to graduation and the NFL draft," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "New head coach Jim McElwain will have his work cut out for him as a result. At least he can pencil in Ivey at some spot along the line, likely at right tackle." NFL Media ranks Ivey as the No. 2 impact freshmen in the nation.

Rivals' No. 1 T recruit and No. 4 overall recruit Martez Ivey committed to Florida.

Ivey stands 6'5/271 pounds, so he obviously has some weight to add. He chose Florida over Auburn. A number of Gator offensive linemen declared early for the draft due to the coaching change.

High school OT Martez Ivey, the No. 5 ranked player in the ESPN 300, "is down to Florida and Auburn and decided to take a cruise with friends this final weekend to clear his head before making a decision," reported's RecruitingNation.

"The Gators are in desperate need of offensive linemen, but Ivey's best friend, Chandler Cox, just enrolled at Auburn," noted ESPN. "In the end, however, the Gators still have a good shot to land the five-star offensive tackle." ESPN's scouting report notes that Ivey "reminds us some of Cyrus Kouandjio coming out in the 2011 class." That report concluded: "Ivey is a high-motor, high-effort player with good versatility in the trenches. A high school guard who could slide outside to tackle with refinement. Moves very well for a player his size and has a lot of upside."
