In preparation for the 2014 NFL Draft, NFLDraftScout.com will profile the top draft-eligible prospects from FBS-level programs. This summer series will run until the start of the college football season.
The Florida Gators improved to 11-2 in Will Muschamp’s second season in Gainesville — a four-game improvement over his first season — but a 33-23 loss to Teddy Bridgewater and Louisville in the Sugar Bowl left a bitter taste in their mouths to end the year.
With eight Gators drafted into the NFL in April, it will be tough for Florida to duplicate this success in 2013, though Muschamp is setting the bar high.
“Our goal is to go to (the SEC title game in) Atlanta at the University of Florida,” Muschamp said. “And when you don’t meet that goal, you haven’t achieved anything.”
The Gators are once again stacked with NFL talent, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
