Florida redshirt junior WR Andre Debose "could be looked at like a guy like Devin Hester when he came out of Miami," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"He could be looked at like a guy like Devin Hester when he came out of Miami. He wasn't really graded at a position, but he was looked at as a sensational special teams guy. He has return skills, so he will get consideration as far as the Combine and camp invites," Pauline told Inside the Gators. Pauline adds that the 5-foot-11, 191-pound DeBose has "fallen off the map from his great season a couple of years ago. He came into the season not even listed with a grade by the scouting services." The former five-star recruit, has been a disappointment as a WR, but should still remain a weapon on special teams moving forward.

If Redshirt junior Quinton Dunbar "comes out he probably has a undrafted free agent grade right now," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"A guy like that needs to have a standout season production wise and he hasn't done that. If he comes out he probably has a undrafted free agent grade right now at best and he might be another one that needs to really have a standout Pro Day to get a camp invite," Pauline told Inside the Gators. Pauline notes that, if Dunbar produced, he might have slid into the later rounds, but he hasn't produced. Here is a guy who has adequate size and adequate speed, but there's no great physical characteristics about him or his game." This season, Dunbar has ten receptions for 122 yards, while averaging 12.2 yards per catch.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline believes Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel "from a pro perspective just looks lost."

"When you look at him from a pro perspective, he just looks lost. He looks like he doesn't have a grasp of their offensive system, which was supposed to be tailored to better suit what he does," Pauline wrote. In the Florida prospect's last outing he went 7-for-19 with 50 yards passing, with two interceptions in a 42-13 loss to Missouri. Pauline notes that Driskel's "accuracy is awful," but "the physical ability is there, but he shows nothing in the way of having the natural ability to play quarterback."

Florida HC Will Muschamp said true freshman RB Brandon Powell will have "a significant role" on offense this weekend against Georgia.

Muschamp will do anything at this point to turn around his rudderless offense. While talented, Powell himself won't prove to be the missing ingredient in a bland meal that doesn't need spice, but a new cook. The 5-foot-9 Powell could have Devonta Freeman's career if absolutely everything breaks right. More probably, he'll prove to be a nice change-of-pace back for the next coaching staff in Gainesville.

Florida junior DL Jonathan Bullard could leave early for the NFL, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The analyst also reports that teammate Dante Fowler Jr. "is admittedly leaning towards entering the draft." We've long assumed Fowler will leave early; the news here is Bullard. The prospect has arguably been misused at times by Will Muschamp, lining up inside instead of at his more-natural position of defensive end. There's a lot of talent here, but Bullard has a long way to go and might be best served returning to Gainseville for his senior campaign.
Oct 24 - 6:48 PM

Florida freshman QB Treon Harris will start over Jeff Driskel against Georgia.

However, Driskel will have a role in the game, head coach Will Muschamp announced. Harris, who was briefly suspended while being investigated for a sexual battery accusation, returned in a non-starting capacity against Missouri and completed 8 of 12 attempts for 98 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson hauled in five passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in a loss to LSU over the weekend.

Robinson exceeded 120 receiving yards in Florida's first two games, but had only 35 yards combined over his previous two games before Saturday. Robinson is an interesting prospect with NFL size (6-foot-1, 205 pounds), but we won't get an accurate gauge of his potential until he has a competent quarterback and offensive system in place around him. When Jeff Driskel struggles, nobody gets catches, not even his No. 1 target.
Oct 13 - 6:11 PM

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel went 14-for-25 with 183 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 30-27 loss to LSU on Saturday.

He added 71 rushing yards and a score on 21 carries (his teammates combined for only 52 rushing yards, 35 of them coming on an Andre Debose scamper). We'd love to perceive Driskel as a salvageable prospect in a bad situation, but the truth of the matter is that he'd have been replaced long ago were it not for his pedigree. He was the No. 1 QB in the 2011 class, which included Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel and Brett Hundley, amongst others.
Oct 13 - 5:57 PM

Florida HC Will Muschamp announced freshman QB Treon Harris will play against Missouri, but Jeff Driskel will start.

Harris was held out last week against LSU after being accused and investigated for sexual battery. Those charges were dropped days later. Harris replaced Driskel against Tennessee, and helped the Gators achieve a come from behind victory.
Oct 13 - 12:17 PM

Florida has reinstated freshman QB Treon Harris after accusations of sexual battery were dropped, however he will not play versus LSU on Saturday.

Head coach Will Muschamp announced the school's investigation and the police process are complete. "This has been a learning experience for everyone involved. Treon has been honest with me throughout the process and is looking forward to rejoining his teammates," Muschamp added. Jeff Driskel will start and redshirt sophomore Skyler Mornhinweg will be the backup. Don't expect Will Grier's redshirt to be burned this season.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said Florida freshman QB Will Grier "is ready to step in if needed, but UF had hoped to redshirt the high-profile recruit."

The suspension of freshman Treon Harris for alleged sexual battery could put the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Grier in line to play, if starter Jeff Driskel is injured. Even though Harris has now been reinstated, the Gators have chose to have Harris sit out this Saturday's game. Florida will also have redshirt sophomore Skyler Mornhinweg as another available option.
Oct 10 - 5:17 PM

The woman who accused Florida freshman QB Treon Harris of sexual battery has dropped her complaint, according to attorney Huntley Johnson.

"I am pleased for Treon Harris and his family. The ball is in the university’s court," Johnson's statement concluded. Florida suspended Harris during the investigation, which they could still continue. The school announced they will have more information on Harris' football status Friday afternoon.
Oct 10 - 2:30 PM

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel has "exhibited almost no feel for playing the position," according to an NFC player personnel director.

"(Driskel) looks the part, but he's exhibited almost no feel for playing the position," the director said. "I've been very patiently waiting to be impressed, but ..." Because backup Treon Harris is suspended indefinitely, Driskel, incredibly, remains unchallenged for the starting spot. Doesn't sound like the NFL is enthusiastic about Driskel's chances of taking advantage of his remaining collegiate snaps.

Florida HC Will Muschamp said freshman QB Treon Harris remains indefinitely suspended.

Harris was accused of sexually assaulting a female student early Sunday morning, just after leading Florida to a come-from-behind win against Tennessee. Per the Tampa Bay Times: "The woman said Harris sexually assaulted her after they arrived at the Springs, where they both live. Those familiar with the investigation said evidence was collected from Harris’ room." Were it not for that incident, Harris would be Florida's starting quarterback right now. Instead, Jeff Driskel will remain behind center. Muschamp declined comment about Harris' situation, but said it’s "a serious charge." Either Skyler Mornhinweg -- who is in his own hot water after getting into a fist fight over cleats with a teammate earlier this week -- or Will Grier will serve as the No. 2 quarterback going forward.
Oct 8 - 7:58 PM

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel "struggles stringing together completions of any kind," according to NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

The No. 1 quarterback of the 2011 class -- which included Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel and Brett Hundley, among others -- is at an all-time low after going 11-for-23 for 59 yards and three interceptions in Saturday's 10-9 win over Tennessee. Gators' coach Will Muschamp yanked Driskel with a 9-0 deficit and put in Treon Harris in the fourth quarter. Harris, of course, led the Gators to the win, but was then suspended indefinitely after being accused of sexual assault. Driskel remains the starter.
