    Florida position breakdown: Secondary a unit of strength
    gvl sun By Robbie Andreu

    We break down the 2019 Florida football team by position group. This week a look at the secondary.
    The upside
    In CJ Henderson and Marco Wilson, the Gators have one of the best starting cornerback combinations in college football.

    The downside
    Lack of depth at cornerback is a huge concern. Behind Wilson and Henderson, there’s little proven playing experience. That means it’s imperative that the two starters stay healthy and on the field throughout the season.

    Our 2019 DB recruiting class gave me a lot of hope that we were on our way back. I'm hoping we can bring get those guys (minus Steele) ready to play quickly. As the Andreu piece points out, we are a bad sprain or a twisted ankle away from having to put some promising but raw talent into the crucible of SEC pressure.

    One of the reasons I say every kid getting in and playing is so huge. When we are up in games we will
    Have to play the younger kids. Won’t be many redshirts this year if any at this position. Even with depth (other positions) that new 4 game rule is huge. Allows development and saves wear and tear on 1’s and 2’s.

    He's at the top of the list of breakout players this season. He could be a special one.

    I had forgotten all about Slaton... didn't hear a peep about him the entire Spring, and now this. :oops:

    Losing Stewart would hurt big time.

    Everything is still is rumor mode so I can't post, but there is some stuff on the cane boards.
