Projecting the Florida Gators’ 2015 Depth Chart

If the college football season started tomorrow, who would start at what position and who’s behind him? That’s a question fans of every team invariably ask as we enter the home stretch of the countdown to kickoff, and perhaps it’s applicable to no team more than Florida.

So based on what I’ve seen from spring practice, fall practice so far, and what coaches and players are saying, here’s what I’m guessing the depth chart will look like to begin the season:

Key: bold denotes returning starters, *denotes a position the Gators will use depending on the game situation

  1. Wow, VH3 and D-Rob returning punts and kicks? I agree that special teams is important, but why use our best players on each side of the ball? I mean we never used Percy Harvin or Joe Haden to return kicks or punts… I don’t know. It just seems like we’re inviting opponents to try to lay out our two best players

    1. We did, occasionally, use Percy as a returner.. When an opponent would kick away from Brandon James, we would split the field and put Percy back there too… Between the two options, teams would start kicking back to BJ. So I guess Percy didn’t actually return much, but he was back there from time to time!

    2. Coach Mac said in a press conference that using best players in these situations gives the team the biggest advantage and the player the best opportunity to increase their stock as an NFL draft pick as special teams is most likely their first chance to contribute on an NFL roster. I like it. No more holding back in fear. Time to kick some asses.

  2. I agree with most of it except for the OL and LB. We’ll see McMillian or Davis on the field before Rolin. OL will look different after week 3 once we get the right feel for things. It’ll look mostly like this below but thats just what i’m thinkin.

    Halter-LT
    Ivey-LG
    Thurman-C
    Dilliard-RG
    Sharpe-RT
