Chat with former Florida WR Andre Caldwell
Caldwell finished second on Florida with 761 yards and first with seven TDs. Both marks were career highs in his four-year stay in Florida. He was also a big part of Florida's passing attack in 2006 when the Gators won the BCS title. Caldwell finished his junior season with 57 catches for 577 yards and 6 TDs.
According to Caldwell's Scouts Inc.'s draft profile, Caldwell "shows good overall versatility as a receiver, including experience in the slot and split out wide, as well as on reverses. He also has experience returning kicks...He knows how to get open quickly and he possesses the size, agility, hands and toughness to emerge as a very solid No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in the NFL. He projects as a second-round pick in 2008."

Andre Caldwell (1:39 PM)
Hi everyone, happy to be here to answer any questions you have!
Tim from Lake Butler, FL
Bubba, how much do you think the talent at Florida limited your production? Do you think you could stand out more in a pro-style offense?
Andre Caldwell (1:40 PM)
I think in will be more of a standout in a pro-style offensive. We had a lot of weapons a UF, so I think I would shine more in a pro offensive.
Max: Carriere, MS
Which quarterback did you work best with: Chris Leak or Tim Tebow?
Andre Caldwell (1:41 PM)
I think I like Chris Leak a little bit more. We know we wasn't going to take off and runa whole lot so I got the ball a litte bit more.

Hey Bubba! I just wanted to ask you what your feelings were about possibly teaming up with, or playing against, your brother Reche?

That would be great! I never had a chance to play with him before. I think it would be a great opportunity.

My blocking. I cherish blocking and not letting my man make the tackle.

Did coach Meyer give you any advice before the draft? Do you stay in touch?

Hey Andre, I'm talking to you from the Reitz Union! What teams/offenses do you see yourself fitting in the best with in the NFL?
Andre Caldwell (1:48 PM)
Saint Louis, San Francisco, and Cincinnati. Teams that let receivers go down the field and make plays. Teams that keep the receivers involved the whole game.
What's your thoughts on being the new 'Terry Glenn' in Dallas?
Andre Caldwell (1:49 PM)
He is a great a great receive. I think i can come in a do the same if not more. I'm up for the challenge.

Hey Andre, big fan of the Gators, but which offense better prepared you for the NFL, Ron Zook's or Urban Meyers's?
