Now that we have all gotten to read tons of open practice reports and watch the spring game, (and if we're really bored, we've done that for some of our rivals as well) rank the UF position groups relative to UF's scheduled opponents post Spring practice. You can include how you think they might be impacted by players arriving in the summer and fall if you want. (Rankings are out of 13: 12 opponents plus Florida) QB: #5 - Lots of depth, a guy returning with starting experience. I think UF could probably manage an injury to the starter better than a lot of other teams this year because of the talented depth and the experience for Mornhinweg. I think UF is better at this position group than most of the teams on the schedule, but anytime you measure the QB position group, depth matters, but most of the emphasis has to be on the starter, and I think UF is still behind UGA, USCe, Missouri, and FSU. RB: #5 - This seems like a deep unit, with proven commodities in Kelvin Taylor and Mack Brown. Adam Lane looked the part in the spring game, and Matt Jones coming back does nothing but help. The SEC is deep at this unit though. I would still rank Alabama, UGA, and LSU as for sure better. USCe may not have the same kind of depth, but they have one of the best starters in the league, so I'd rank them higher as well. FSU has a lot of talented depth, but not a lot in the proven commodity area. WR/TE/B: #8 - If we were ranking only on potential, I would put this unit pretty high, relative to UF's opponents. But if you're being objective, and you look at production, then this unit is lacking compared to just about everyone else on the schedule. I would only rank this unit better than EMU, Idaho, Eky, UK, and VU. Maybe close to being tied with Tennessee. OL: #9 - Again, if we were ranking on potential and recruiting rankings, this unit would be pretty highly ranked, but going off of how it has performed recently, I would only rank this unit above EMU, Idaho, Eky, UK, and Tennessee. DL: #4 - I think this line has the chance to be one of the best in the SEC. They just have to work on their pass rush, and get one or two more guys to step up for depth. But as of right now, the only three teams that match Florida are FSU, Alabama, and Georgia. All three may be better, but it's close. LB: #5 - Florida's LBs have been hard to evaluate. They had an up and down season in 2013, and that was because of injuries and inconsistent play up front, but really the biggest thing Muschamp said all year was that they struggled to get off blocks. Regardless, the unit is fast, has a lot of experience, and can really hit you. Their biggest issue is depth, where Davis and McMillan really need to step up, and they need all three of their injured youngsters to come back at full speed. That being said, they are better than everyone on the schedule except for LSU, Alabama, Georgia, and maybe Tennessee (Maggit and Johnson are very good). DB: #1 - Florida's secondary has been good all three years of the WM era. Although there are a few questions at safety, the talent in the secondary is indisputable. VH3 is already probably the best corner in the conference, and Gorman, while not spectacular, is a solid player with experience on the back end. I would rank UF higher than everyone else on the schedule. Only LSU, FSU, and Alabama have a chance at being better and I wouldn't bet on it. Special Teams: #1 - Florida's coverage team is solid, and the punting game looks to be better. It looks like the kicking game may have solved its problems too, so i think UF may be getting back to having one of the best special teams in the conference. I look for them to be better or equal to anyone on the schedule next season. Getting Andre Debose back in the return game is big too. Given how the position groups look now, and the talent coming in over the summer and fall, Uf should have a good chance to drastically improve it's record from last year. Thoughts?
