    Wish Dominique all the best. Great Gator. Hard to believe UT was his last game for UF!

    He is undersized to play inside in the NFL. He's going to have to evolve his game. I agree that he has to play with his hand down, but I think he can come off the edge.

    No way he has the upfield skills (or even size) to be a NFL end. He will be more than fine as a three-technique in a one-gap system. He is unbelievably fast off the snap and blowing up A-gaps.

    I see him like RayMac, he just works better inside. I think the Bears or Cowboys would pick him up and probably Chip Kelly and Pete Carroll.

    Wait? At 6'2, 280, you don't think he can be an NFL DE?

    I tend to think weight is more important inside than height is outside. I'd like to think that his exceptional quickness can make up for the fact that he's about 20 lbs lighter than the average pro 3-tech, but I'm not sure.

    And he's too slow to play on the outside. We're talking about about guy 6'2 285 that probably runs in the 4.8's. He's got a quick first step going against guards and centers, totally different game going against NFL tackles. You compared him to freeney who ran in the 4.4's and had a a 40 inch vert. Thats a way more explosive athlete then Dom, especially with him now coming off two ACLs. Just an opinion but no one is gonna put him as 4-3 DE or 3-4 OLB.

    Easly's constant presence in the backfield was what made this defense go. The guy disrupted just about every play. Made linebacker angles easy for run stopping by forcing the back to one side or the other immediately after hand-off. Made our DBs look great because of QB hurries. The loss of his leadership may be equally as important. When the young guys see a senior in there having fun, it makes things click easier. This is a devastating loss. Bullard & Fowler need to be all-American for this defense to remain elite. Time will tell.

    Our team will be afflicted by the super-flu from Stephen King's The Stand. Muschamp will explain that several players merely tweaked their respiratory systems.
