Florida freshman TE Daniel Imatorbhebhe is already planning to transfer.

Imatorbhebhe was an early enrolee, so this type of decision after just one set of spring practices is uncommon. Imatorbhebhe's younger brother just signed on with USC for the 2016, choosing the Trojans over the Gators. The smart opinion is Daniel will do the same with his transfer.

Florida sophomore RB Kelvin Taylor has "the talent to be a solid go-to back in this league," according to Edward Aschoff of ESPN.

Aschoff notes the Gators' running game will be very important for the 2015 season, like it has in recent years, due to the struggles of the passing attack. Fred Taylor's son "does, however, need to improve on his career 4.7 yards per carry and be more consistent with his pass-blocking," according to Aschoff.

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.

Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves III "is a technically sound corner who rarely gets beaten over the top thanks to his speed and agility to turn and run and wideouts," notes SB Nation's Dan Kadar.

"The knock on him is that he's not the biggest, but he's rates high in every other area," Kadar wrote. The analyst believes Hargreaves is the only player right now who could realistically enter into a debate with Ohio State junior defensive end Joey Bosa over who should be the top draft prospect entering the season. Hargreaves is the best corner in the land.

Florida sophomore Brandon Powell is moving from RB to slot WR, where he is expected to start.

The move makes sense, as Powell nearly had as many catches (15) as carries (16) during his first collegiate season. He took those 15 catches for 147 yards and one touchdown. Powell has missed a large part of spring work due to a postseason foot surgery which included a screw, with a "hot spot" found later.

NFL Media ranks Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves III as the No. 2 defensive player in the country.

"As a freshman, he knocked an eventual early NFL draft entry out of a job. As a sophomore, he established himself as the best cornerback in the SEC," wrote NFL.com's Chase Goodbread. "This year, there's not much room for improvement for Hargreaves. He is good enough to break the normal field/boundary cornerback alignment and simply shadow the opponent's best receiver, if the new UF coaching staff chooses to use him that way." Hargreaves tied for the conference lead last season with 13 pass breakups. He chipped in three interceptions. If all goes according to plan, he'll be a top-10 pick in one year's time.

Twenty seven percent of the 2015 NFL Draft played high school football in Georgia or Florida, according to Jamie Newberg.

The two states combine for 69 of the 256 draft picks. To take it one step further, Florida, Georgia, Texas and California can claim almost half of the draft pool (28 percent). Georgia is a bit of a new face, as Newberg points out Florida, California and Texas have been the high school to NFL factories for years.

Scout.com ranks Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves III as the No. 2 overall draft prospect.

"He's the top cornerback in college football with the skill set to be a potential top five pick in next year's draft," wrote Jamie Newberg. "Hargreaves has very good size (5-11/192) and length. He plays with outstanding instincts and superior ball skills. Hargreaves is exceptional in press coverage and can play off. This is a confident corner that's as good as they come." Hargreaves, who led the SEC last season with 13 pass breakups and chipped in three interceptions, is compared by NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah to Joe Haden.

Former Vanderbilt senior QB/WR Josh Grady has decided to transfer to Florida.

Grady intended on playing quarterback when he enrolled at Vanderbilt but did not see any action; however, Grady made the transition to wide receiver while serving as Vanderbilt's wildcat QB as a sophomore. In 2013, Grady moved back to QB full time and played in 3 games, before an injury ended his year. As a junior, Grady saw action at WR in eight games. In his time at Vanderbilt, Grady completed 3 of 7 passes for 27 yards, with no touchdowns and 2 interceptions, posting 7 catches for 89 yards, with 11 carries for 20 yards. Grady plans to play quarterback at Florida, but will also play wideout.

ESPN Draft analyst Mel Kiper has Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves III as his No. 5 overall prospect on his big board, and thinks he could be the "top CB taken in the 2015 draft, if available."

"What Hargreaves lacks in size, he makes up for in instincts and effortless fluidity in moving with receivers. He's not that small, really, at 5-11 and about 195 pounds, and I think he would have been the top CB taken in the 2015 draft, if available," Kiper wrote. The Florida prospect has definitely showed he's worthy of the praise, as he's recorded six interceptions in just 24 games, flashing cover skills to get Joe-Haden type comparisons. Our own Josh Norris had Hargreaves III going to the Titans at No. 4 in his 2016 mock draft.

Former Alabama and Oregon State QB Luke Del Rio will join Florida this summer.

We have no idea what year Del Rio is because he keeps changing schools. If we had to guess, Luke is entering his redshirt sophomore season and spent last year with Oregon State. He will be the third quarterback on Florida's roster behind two scholarship passers. Del Rio likely needs to sit out the season to satisfy NCAA regulations.

Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves III "could be a top-10 pick," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

The SEC's best cover corner has been compared by NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah to Joe Haden. Hargreaves ranks as the No. 4 underclassmen prospect in the draft in the estimation of Rang. Rotoworld's Josh Norris recently slotted Hargreaves III to the Titans at No. 4 in a mock draft.

Suspended Florida CB J.C. Jackson, who is facing a felony armed robbery charge, will transfer to another program.

Jackson is currently off scholarship and the report states decision makers at Florida have made it known he will not be put back on scholarship once his charges are settled. Jackson was a four-star corner recruit out of high school.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris slotted Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves III to the Titans at No. 4 in a 2016 mock draft.

"Hargreaves has faced some of the top receivers in the country," he wrote. "He has not always won, but there is obvious skill in his game. Expect him to lock down many opponents this season." In Todd McShay's mock exercise, Hargreaves stayed home, going to the Jags at No. 6. "He's smaller than ideal for a cornerback in Gus Bradley's defense, but he's an elite talent," McShay wrote. "His man-to-man cover skills are outstanding, and he's a playmaker due to his instincts and anticipation."

Florida redshirt senior TE Jake McGee "is an interesting NFL prospect" who "possesses a long, athletic frame and enough speed to challenge down the seam," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

McGee broke his tibia and fibula in the opener against Eastern Michigan in early September and was granted an extra year of eligibility. NFLDraftScout.com had McGee rated as a Rds. 5-6 prospect before his injury. "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," wrote Rang.
