Editor's note: We're breaking down the Gators' two-deep depth chart every day for the next two weeks. We'll cover every position as well as offer a glimpse into the future. You can read the whole series here.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Fresh faces were everywhere at Florida this spring. A poor season in 2013 brought a clean slate. A new offense brought opportunities at every position. A large group of redshirt freshmen and true freshmen brought a much-needed infusion of talent.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Progress. It's what Florida fans expect to see this fall. It's what they hope to see in Saturday's spring game. Everyone is under much more scrutiny after the Gators' 4-8 record last season, but mostly the microscope will be on a brand-new offense that has been installed in just 14 spring practices.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Kelvin Taylor arrived at Florida last year with all the fanfare one would expect of an elite recruit who also happened to be the son of a school legend. He didn't really factor into Florida's running game, however, until an injury ended the season of starter Matt Jones in Week 6.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Thanks to a new offense, the Florida Gators are expecting some serious improvement this fall. Every player has hopes and dreams of better statistics. The most realistic chances to double or even triple their production?
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- In the last decade, more than any other time in its history, Florida's status as a recruiting juggernaut has been proven. Once head coach Steve Spurrier established his alma mater among college football's elite, blue-chip talent started flocking to UF.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Throughout the offseason, Florida knew its program depth would be tested. The Gators lost seven starters from last year's defense and knew Week 1 would mean a match up against a veteran Toledo offense that averaged more than 445 yards of total offense in 2012.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida seems to be treading water when it comes to injuries. Starting left guard Max Garcia (back) and reserve offensive lineman Trip Thurman (shoulder) returned to practice on Monday, but the Gators lost two more players and are still waiting on word on two others.
