TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green "looked good and his run blocking was impressive" in the first half of Saturday's game against Alabama.

Unfortunately, Green suffered an injury which sapped his effectiveness in the second half. "After having his leg rolled up on Green tried to play with a heavily wrapped ankle late in the first half but was far less effective," Pauline wrote. The analyst is a big fan of Green's, writing last week: "He’s incredibly athletic displaying terrific footwork and movement skills as well as the ability to adjust to blitzers. The ease which Green gets out to the second level and flows around the field is impressive. He must get stronger as well as play at a consistently high level but Green definitely comes with great upside."

Florida missed 30 tackles in the school's 42-21 loss to Alabama, according to Pro Football Focus.

"Three Gators missed four apiece, including linebacker Michael Taylor, cornerback Brian Poole, and safety Jabari Gorman," PFF's Steve Palazzalo writes. In fact, the PFF crew notes safety Marcus Maye has the only Florida defensive starter who did not miss a tackle. Be sure to click the link below to see every player graded.

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III played Alabama's Amari Cooper "very well" in Saturday's loss, writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Hargreaves actually played Cooper very well in this game, showing off the agility, speed and instincts to one day earn a first round selection, himself," Rang wrote. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last week that Hargreaves III "might be the best cornerback in college football." NFL.com ranked Hargreaves III as the No. 17 overall player in college football prior to the year. Daniel Jeremiah compares him to Joe Haden. The true sophomore is not yet draft-eligible.

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel had a nightmare showcase against Alabama on Saturday, going 9-for-28 for 93 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 42-21 loss.

He averaged an ugly 3.3 yards per attempt. Driskel also rushed for 59 yards and a touchdown. This game is going to do serious damage to Driskel's odds of getting drafted. Once rated better than Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel and Brett Hundley as a recruit, Driskel has failed to develop and regressed behind them all. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder has an ugly 19/13 TD/INT ratio over his career.

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel must play well on Saturday to place himself on the radars of NFL scouts, writes NFL.com's Charles Davis.

"The senior isn't currently in the conversation when it comes to the top quarterback prospects in the nation," Davis wrote. "A strong performance against the Crimson Tide would certainly grab the attention of evaluators, though. Driskel was rated as the top quarterback in his recruiting class -- which included Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel and Brett Hundley, among others -- but he hasn't lived up to his billing, in part due to injuries. Can he win one of those big games he was expected to when he arrived at Florida? Here's his chance against a tough Alabama defense." The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder entered this season with 2,271 passing yards and 14 touchdowns against 10 interceptions over 15 career starts. We're also fascinated to see how Driskel performs in Kurt Roper's spread offense against SEC defenses.

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III "might be the best cornerback in college football," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

The true sophomore is not yet draft-eligible. "It will be a treat to watch him [on Saturday] against [Alabama's Amari] Cooper," Brugler wrote. Cooper, of course, is one of college football's best wideouts and ranks second amongst FBS WRs with 460 receiving yards. NFL.com ranked Hargreaves III as the No. 17 overall player in college football prior to the year. Daniel Jeremiah compares him to Joe Haden.

Florida junior edge rusher Dante Fowler Jr. "was omnipresent" in Kentucky's backfield on Saturday, notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Fowler Jr. had six tackles, four QB hurries, two tackles for loss, one sack and one forced fumble in the three overtime thriller. "On tape Fowler was omnipresent making plays behind the line of scrimmage, out to the sidelines in pursuit and displayed great explosion and suddenness," Pauline wrote. "His hustle and ability to force the action was impressive as the junior was unstoppable. Will Fowler enter the draft? Sources tell me his parents are fully engaged in the process and it will be a wait and see proposition." 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.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green is "incredibly athletic" and displays "terrific footwork."

"I’ve given little known offensive lineman Chaz Green positive reviews since his sophomore season and the Gators left tackle performed at an impressive level Saturday night against Kentucky," Pauline wrote. "He’s incredibly athletic displaying terrific footwork and movement skills as well as the ability to adjust to blitzers. The ease which Green gets out to the second level and flows around the field is impressive. He must get stronger as well as play at a consistently high level but Green definitely comes with great upside." We will add that Green must stay healthy this season to get drafted.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl called Florida junior edge rusher Dante Fowler Jr. a "tone setter-type" player.

"Fowler has his limitations but I love the way he plays the game," Weidl tweeted. The evaluator specifically pointed to one play Fowler made, displaying bend around the edge while creating pressure. Rotoworld's Josh Norris is also a big fan of Fowler, as long as he continues to use length and hands at the point of attack.

Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson hauled in 15 passes for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Gators staved off Kentucky 36-30 in triple overtime over the weekend.

Robinson tied Carlos Alvarez's school record for catches in a single game. He's had an eye-opening start to the season. Robinson was suspended for the opener against Idaho, which itself was suspended due to inclement weather. In the past two games, he's gone off for 21 catches, 339 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Robinson is clearly Jeff Driskel's No. 1 target. Against the Wildcats, no other receiver had more than two catches.

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

In his return from suspension, Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson snagged six passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

Robinson was involved in a little bit of a controversy earlier in the week when Florida coach Will Muschamp decided to reinstate he and DTs Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick from suspensions after the opener versus Idaho was suspended due to weather. It didn't seem to faze him. Robinson raced to a 70-yard touchdown on a pass from Treon Harris with 14:47 left in the fourth quarter to give the Gators a 58-0 lead. They won 65-0.

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel went 31-for-45 with 248 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions in a 65-0 win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

The previously maligned 6-foot-4, 230-pounder entered this season with 2,271 passing yards and 14 touchdowns against 10 interceptions over 15 career starts. When he snapped his ankle last season (missing all but two games), Florida's offense went into a tailspin. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote over the summer that Driskel has "undeniable tools," adding: "Though he's struggled with consistency and durability to this point, Driskel possess many of the attributes that fit in with the NFL -- including courage in the pocket, a snappy release, good velocity and the athleticism to avoid pressur." We're curious to see what he does in Kurt Roper's spread offense against SEC defenses.

NFLDraftScout.com had Florida redshirt senior TE Jake McGee rated as a Round 5-6 prospect before his season-ending leg injury.

McGee will miss the rest of the season after breaking his tibia and fibula in Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan. The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder was graded by NFLDraftScout.com as the No. 9 senior tight end coming into the weekend. "McGee possesses a long, athletic frame and enough speed to challenge down the seam," Dane Brugler wrote. "He has very good hand-eye coordination and can make the tough, contested grab but needs to add strength and experience as a blocker after much of his success at Virginia came while split out in the slot."

Florida redshirt senior TE Jake McGee will miss the remainder of the season with a broken tibia and fibula.

One week after a sure-win against Idaho was rained out (and not rescheduled this season), Florida lost both McGee and left tackle D.J. Humphries to injuries in what should have been a breezy afternoon against Eastern Michigan. McGee's injury was devastating. He had an air cast fit onto his leg, and was then carted off the field. McGee transferred to Florida as a graduate student after playing the past three seasons at Virginia, hauling in 71 grabs for 769 yards and seven touchdowns over the past two years. He has enough skills to potentially play at the next level, so it will be interesting to see what decisions McGee makes in regards to his football future.
