The Florida Gators spring “practices” have come to a close for the 2015 season. Now all that’s left to take care of is the small matter of the spring game, affectionately known as the Orange and Blue Debut.
There only one little problem.
Jim McElwain and his staff have a serious shortage on the offensive line.
With a medley of guys hurt, and declaring early for the NFL Draft, and just simply a lack of depth, there’s a layer of difficulty surrounding not only the offensive progression but the ability to host a full fledge spring game as well.
In an effort to remedy that while still giving fans something worth coming to see, McElwain says that the team will most likely run with four 12 minute drills and a running clock. He does note though that this information is subject to change and he and his staff continue to find the most appropriate way to handle Saturdays scrimmage.

We also tackle the actual tackling that’s taking place among the offensive and defensive line drills.
