Florida releases depth chart for week one

The Florida Gators announced their two-deep depth chart for the opening week of the season against Toledo.

There are some surprises on the initial depth chart, especially on offense, as it was announced that Kyle Koehne will now start at right guard due to Tyler Moore sliding over to right tackle to replace the injured Chaz Green.

One other surprise is the absence of Kent Taylor at the tight end position, especially after hearing about how he had gained weight this offseason.

Even though freshman Demarcus Robinson is listed as a second team receiver, Gator Country expects Robinson to get starter reps during the game and play a ton.

The defensive side of the ball is just about what everyone expected with the exception of the cornerback position, where many believed Loucheiz Purifoy would start over Watkins.
