College Football News Preview 2020: Top Florida Gators Players
Best Florida Gators Offensive Player
QB Kyle Trask, Sr.
An argument could be made that Kyle Pitts belongs here as one of the nation’s top tight ends, and the hope is for a wide receiver or one of the good running backs to rise up into a star, but Trask rose up into the main man for the attack.
Good in practices and in his limited time, he was seen as a nice option in case something happened to Feleipe Franks, and then something happened to Feleipe Franks.
The 6-5, 239-pound Trask stepped in when Franks went down for the year hurt, and he took off hitting 67% of his passes for 2,941 yards and 25 scores with four rushing scores. He had no problems keeping his cool in big situations, and he proved to be a solid decision-maker who could push the ball deep.

Best Florida Gators Defensive Player
S Shawn Davis, Sr.
Take your pick of several Gators for this spot – and for the top five list. There might not be too many nationally known names, but there’s a whole lot of All-SEC and next-level talent on what’s going to be another great D.
So why Davis? The 5-11, 185-pound future NFL starter could’ve left early with his speed, versatility, and the ability to bring the really, really big pop. He might not be all that huge, but he’s an intimidating tackler. He finished fourth on the team with 51 tackles with three picks as part of the safety mix.
