    How many recruits do you think we will take at each position this year. Here are my predictions.

    QB- 1 (Grier)
    RB-1-2 (most likely one will be a FB)
    WR- 3
    TE= 1
    OL- 5 (would love to add Ward and Sharpe to the 3 we have committed)
    DT- 1-2
    DE- 1-2
    LB- 3
    CB-2
    S- 1

    My quess is that we have a smaller class this year of around 20 signees. Attrition may cause that to go up but I would guess we wouldn't sign more than 22 or 23 this year

    I dont know if your including fullback in your numbers for rb, but i would imagine we need to think about taking a fb this year

    Unless rhaheim can provide starter reps in two years, if we dont take one this year, we will have to rely on a freshman to provide reps in 2015... Although, that didnt work out too bad with hunter joyer

    I think if we do take 2 RB's this year one might be a fullback. If I was coach Muschamp I would also scour the country for a couple of big bruising walk ons like Nebraska always seem to recruit in their heyday. Send some scouts to some of the state high school wrestling championships and recruit some of the 220 pounders who are athletic and have the ability to bulk up another 20 to 30 pounds.

    Think we need more than 2 corners.

    I could maybe see us bringing in 3 cornerbacks since we lose 3 seniors after next year and if VH3 is as good as advertised he could leave after 3 years. I think the key to 2 or 3 might be if Nick Washington is seen as a cornerback or a safety. My hope is he can play corner since we have a lot of young talent at S.

    We've got Poole in the 2015 class, zero corners in the 2016 class and Hargreaves and possibly Washington in the 2017 class. That's it. We need to take corners this year so we're not relying on true freshmen in the rotation in 2015. It's the biggest hole on the roster IMO.

    Am I missing something? It seems like we get quality corners every cycle. I know POP left but are we really hurting at corner?

    The problem is we only took one corner each of the last two cycles. We need to take 3 CB's two of those guys need to be pure CB's. Right now I personally dont consider Dawson a pure CB.

    I agree they have had multiple guys come visit over spring practice that would fit the full back position. As of right now I would guess the FB C and TE position will be fought out in summer camps.

    this.....

    I also consider Nickle corner a starting position in our defense. We just need to bring in two true corners as well.

    They are recruiting like we are going to fill 25 spots which is the right way to do it not sure if we will have enough attrition. One thing this staff does is they dont have a set number on recruits. Some schools will say they are taking 3 of one position and that's it. This staff is much more flexible and thus we are getting a higher quality of player IMO.

    Anyone have any clue on who if any other DB are looking at us? Also anyone at Safety? I've been putting too much emphasis on RB, WR, DL, and OL so far so I need to catch up on those positions. I know Duke is in but is Adoree Jackson or Jabrill Peppers interested at all?

    There is still a lot of option out there for DB's. The players Florida is in real good position for are Quincy Wilson, Jalen Tabor, JC Jackson. Some other names that have or should visit campus are Chis Lammmons, Parrker Westphal,Wesley Green D.J. Smith Jamal Adams Trey Marshall & Grant Haley. Peppers has no interest Adore Jackson has some but we will just have to wait and see if he visits.

    As you can see we are in on a lot of DB's too many to really even talk about. This is one position where we will fill our need just hope we save a spot for Tabor.
