    Yeah, I don’t get all the transfer talk. Sits for a year if he transfers. Not gonna be granted immediate play. Just not happening. Stays w the good guys and is 1 play away.
    As far as FF coming back he may but Dan has to go w Kyle. Kyle’s surprised only those that didn’t truly know what he could do. This isn’t a surprise to his receivers and team. He’s gotta be our starter next year.

    I think he'd fit in well with a team like the Pats, both as WR and KR. No. 1 priority for NFL teams when it comes to punts: Make sure you get the ball back (no TO).

    I am becoming more convinced that EJ won't transfer but am pretty sure FF will. After what we are seeing with Trask, there is no way imo that FF is better. By the way is FF even on the Gators sideline? After his injury he was seen tossing balls to Trask, now there is zero mention of him. I do hope he heals completely and wish him the best. It has to be hard to see the second guy do so well, even though your glad it still has to hurt. Anyhow, I see EJ getting more reps next year with Trask in games. Dan will utilize him a lot more imo.

    I think he will get a smidge more comfortable pulling it down and running when needed. Right now he’s rough. I also think he will be more comfortable looking for that 2nd and 3rd read. Lol

    Dean may be better served to move to safety.

    I have been outspoken on other threads that I am not sure that he can even handle safety. In taking angles to tackle in the Georgia game, he looked like a true freshman in his first game, not understanding the speed of SEC play. This is too late in his development to look like that. Highly recruited DB are expected to contribute as freshman and be completely up to speed in their sophomore year or get passed over. I hope he can get it together.

    Eh...I remember how much flack CGJ took 2 years ago then last year happened. If you are having trouble processing a new position it effects everything from there on out.

    Good point, but his play was so bad, they moved over someone with no experience at Star plus a poor tackler to take over the position. He may just need some confidence and experience, but he has had a lot of injury free time this year to figure it out.

    From my view the O is far more capable and has more sustained drives (the flow just seems better), I like FF but it feels like when he is under center most drives feel like they are on the edge of collapse. I don't feel that with KT under center...…

    Is that just me?

    No its not just you, Trask is just a better QB. Some pan out some don’t Wasn’t Jeff Driskel a .99 5-star out of high school? Although I believe his development was hurt alot here by poor QB coaching.

    Driskel tore it up at La Tech and is still on an NFL roster. Coaching.
