Preview 2019: Florida. 5 Things You Need To Know, Season Prediction

3. TOP FLORIDA PLAYERS

Best Florida Offensive Player

QB Feleipe Franks, Jr. 
He might not be a totally polished, finished product, and he might have had a few underwhelming moments – at least before the South Carolina win in mid-November – causing a love/grouchy relationship with the fan base, but the last four games showed off what he can be.

He’s got the NFL size, he’s careful with the ball, he’s got the arm, and he can move. At this point, he might have gone through the growing pains and is about to take his game up to a more consistent, accurate level. If that happens, look out.

2. WR Van Jefferson, Sr.
3. LB Lamical Perine, Sr.
4. WR Josh Hammond, Sr.
5. RB Dameon Pierce, Soph.

Best Florida Defensive Player

CB CJ Henderson, Jr. 
There are at least five Gators – depending on health – who could be here, and about five others who should be on this top five list. Henderson has Thorpe talent and early first round NFL Draft pick skills, with 6-1, 191-pound size, the burst to get into the backfield from time to time – coming up with three sacks and five tackles for loss – and he’ll tackle, with 38 last year. A few more big plays would be nice – two picks and seven broken up passes last season – but he’s a special corner in a special secondary.

2. DE Jabari Zuniga, Sr.
3. LB Jonathan Greenard, Sr.
4. LB David Reese, Sr.
5. CB Marco Wilson, Soph.
