    With the consensus being 5 more spots...who do you all hope to see that's somewhat realistic?

    23. Marks - Top RB on our boards but I'd be happy with Gibbs or Parrish.
    24. Henderson - It's looking like we are going to need WRs, and I'd rather not count on the portal. Henderson is a top talent, and a particularly painful miss given the family connection.
    25. Harris - Grantham has convinced Mullen we need another Buck and Harris is a special talent. Joseph seems to be the more likely play.
    26. Williams - I think Avantae Williams is a special talent and our numbers (and talent) is poor given that nickel is really our base formation and dime packages are getting more common. This spot will likely go to a DL (Smith, Pinder, or Princely), but I personally think Safety is the bigger need.
    27. Heath - If we are going to have a dearth of experience at WR, I'd like to bring in a talented JUCO guy. I think this spot will also go to DL (Smith, Pinder, or Princely), though I'd rather use the spot on a WR...especially with Manual and Henderson not signing until Feb

    Marks looks like a great back. I like his highlights showing he runs hard with great balance but also can run the read-option from the QB position.

    I think a grad transfer OT is one of the highest priorities. We need one scholarship for that. We were one serious injury from disaster on the OL.

    Clemson just got Hendo's last visit. So that might tell you something.

    I feel good about Smith.

    There are three others I feel good about.

    I’d be really happy if we got Williams or Harris in that order.

    I feel a lb is a priority. Morven
    RB too. Marks
    WR too. Heath or hendo but as stated...
    Safety too. A Wms please
    5 is for the best available.

    There may be a non qualifier or two come late signing period and they can fill with transfers or top tier available (Gibbs, etc). Maybe not the most sexy but seems needs met with quality. No more bucks...

    I’d take a good dt over a wr any day. There are a ton of god receivers and only a handful of good big boys. Bama May have the best receivers in the country but it doesn’t help much if you can’t dominate the los.

    Smith, Harris, Gibbs, Heath, and Dumerville. Would be an unreal finish.

    With Hendo’s big bro leaving early, that’s one less thing in our favor - thinking Clemson here.

    I think we need to expect to keep legacies and family member football players here in Gainseville. I know we need one thing.. that is to build a better stand alone football facility than what every team in college football currently has when we finish building it. Screw Clemson and their cash-bag men/woman and their PED playing team.

    Can't build anything until the new baseball stadium is complete and the old one is demolished since that is where the footbal facility is being built.

    The new one breaks ground 2 days after the last home baseball game.them asking for money is not unusual even after the project is done as it is part of a multi phase project that is more then just the stand alone facility and baseball stadium. Hell part of it is a major renovations to the swamp not expansion actually will shrink the capacity.

    If we get Smith, Princely, Marks

    with one of the following:

    Henderson, Williams or Harris

    I’d be extremely happy.
