    Love the guy, but curious - what is his pro potential? And if prospects are good, what position would he play at that level?

    Who cares? We needed a college QB, and we got one!

    H-back. I think he could be a useful niche player for some team out there if they know how to use him.

    Could he play TE like some guy who used to play in NE?

    He makes plays, I think he could play for someone as a slot receiver and do some underneath stuff. Of course I also thought Hines was to good with the ball in his hands and would make a roster.

    He will line up in several different spots in the NFL.

    Trey is playing really well for the Gators. He's doing so many things, from making valuable catches on 3rd down to last night's punt return; making key blocks down field. He's been one of our most valuable offensive players. And not to name names, but one of our more-esteemed posters recently deemed Trey an "average football player." I do not agree with that at all.

    Now, as far as pro potential, I don't really see it. He's not bulky enough to play TE and not skilled enough to play RB/HB in the NFL. He's one heck of a Gator though.

    Not sure how he translates to the NFL. But he probably shouldn't be returning punts. Purifoy or Hargreaves would have returned his longest one all the way.
    Still love how he fits this team.

    Somebody in the NFL has certainly noticed him over the years with an idea of where he might fit. He will have to have a great combine or pro day workout. No idea how fast he is against a stop watch. He has a better chance if he's drafted. Then he'll be filling a perceived needed role. Given the chance to make a team, the odds are good. He'll be a hard working special teams player and he will do things with the ball. I don't see a long career for him. Like Ahmad Black, he doesn't have all the God-given tools to stand out over the long term.

    Yes, the "H" back variety tight-end.

    Agreed on the post mentioning that he can fill the role played by Hernandez, minus the killing of course. He's a jack of all trades type player, and it is to be determined if he can master any. Regardless, he'll find a place in the NFL due to his diverse skillset.

    I could see him playing for the Patriots doings a little bit of everything.

    I think he found his position as a slot receiver. To me he is just a bigger Devon Bess and once he gets into a passing attack that can use his size with back shoulder throws he might have a chance to blossom. He is kind of having that David Nelson senior season but better.

    I know he did. It was simple, straight ahead, and if he has elite speed and could cut, it was a touchdown

    Agree. He is an almost player. Something is missing for elite status. A good college versatile player but a jack level and an ace at nothing. I do not see nfl.

    Sadly, that's my concern and I have to agree.

    See UGA run last year, TD against UT ... he can turn on the burners when he needs to.
